Tom Felton Says 'Aging's A B***h' As He Dons Draco Malfoy Costume

Tom Felton Says 'Aging's A B***h' As He Dons Draco Malfoy Costume

I imagine there are many perks to being a child actor: making your parents proud, missing a class or two, never having to get a paper round.

But one big downside is that everyone who saw you on the screen as a kid seems to expect you to stay like that forever, somehow defying the inevitable ageing that afflicts us all.

Tom Felton - who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series - has clearly demonstrated that child actors definitely cannot defy the hands of time, donning his Slytherin gown and posing next to an old picture of him as a young Draco back in the day.

Captioning the photo on Instagram, the 32-year-old said: "Agings a b***h"

His inevitable physical transformation in the 18 years since he debuted as the smarmy little s**t in the hugely successful wizard school series evidently hasn't hampered his popularity though, with the post receiving more than 1,197,000 likes.

His pal, Tom Fletcher from McFly, also commented: "You'll always be beautiful to me TF"

However, his former co-star Matt Lewis - who played Neville Longbottom - clearly didn't agree with his appraisal of the ageing process, replying: "Speak for yourself lad!"

You may recall that old Neville was a bit of a dorky character in the Potter films, however, in the years that have elapsed since, Lewis has grown up to be somewhat of a hunk - hence the actor seems a little keener on this ageing business.


But while we have established emphatically that child actors definitely do age, that doesn't stop people from stopping a girl from London in the street because she bears such a striking similarity with a young Emma Watson.

To be fair, Emmie Allan does look a lot like her, so much so that her pals call her Hermione, with Emmie often dressing up as the character at fancy dress parties.

Her mum, Sherelle, said: "I do get excited for her looking like Emma. It's very funny. It's definitely a flattering lookalike.

"She was flattered by it at first. She went all shy and would have a big smile on her face and tuck her head down to say thank you. But now it's just like 'yes, I know'.

"She gets stopped at least once a week. She just rolls her eyes at them now. It gets quite annoying for her."
