Harry Potter Fans Shocked After Draco Malfoy Actor Tom Felton Appears On Great Morning Britain

It's been more than seven years since fans finally said goodbye to Harry Potter and the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

But some fans just can't seem to accept it's over, and that's just what happened when one of the film's stars, Tom Felton, who famously played HP's arch nemesis Draco Malfoy in all eight films, rocked up for an interview on Good Morning Britain.

Like a drunk lover trawling through their exes' Facebook photos at 2am, they couldn't help leaving bitchy comments on how their old flame had 'changed'.

One viewer said: "Please!! Someone do something with Tom Felton's hair!"

"Could've washed your hair @TomFelton," added another.

A third said: "Tom Felton looking like he is rocking up late to his first sociology lecture after freshers week."

He apparently doesn't practice magic anymore either.

However, not everyone was unhappy with the new look, with one fan saying: "Tom Felton has got pretty fit ain't he!"

Thankfully, one viewer brought everyone back down to Earth however, when they wrote: "Like yea, you also looked different 7 years ago, duh. Also having your hair bleached from brown to peroxide blonde for 10 years may you make look different. Get over it."

And despite being there to talk about his new role in sci-fi series 'Origin', he couldn't help but get drawn back into a conversation about his days at Hogwarts.

Morgan's son Spencer, who is a massive Harry Potter fan, even popped into the studio to meet the actor and show off a piece of artwork he had inked on his body in homage to the Deathly Hallows films.

His dad however, admitted to have never actually watched a single Harry Potter film in his life - another reason if it were needed not to like him.

Piers said: "I feel like despite my own lack of interest this is how far Harry Potter has permeated the public interest. When my own children are emblazoned with permanent symbols of what you guys stand for."

Tom then said how it was an incredible opportunity to be part of the multi-million pound saga, which he claimed had totally changed the course of his life.

He told the two presenters: "The Harry Potter flame is not going anywhere anytime soon. I'm meeting new fans every day.

"It has changed my life beyond recognition. At the same time I don't see myself as a Harry Potter star. I only feel like that when I get questioned."
