​Harry Potter Fans Stunned To Realise Draco Malfoy Was In The Borrowers

​Harry Potter Fans Stunned To Realise Draco Malfoy Was In The Borrowers

The Harry Potter franchise may have given many young actors their first big break, but not everyone made their movie debut among hippogriffs, boggarts and butterbeers.

Tom Felton, who played Potter's arch nemesis Draco Malfoy, had actually been on the acting circuit for several years by the time he came to don the Slytherin robes.

In fact, his debut came in another major flick that you may remember from your childhood, having landed his first feature film role as Peagreen Clock in 1997's The Borrowers.

Yep, while we're used to associating the star with bleach-blond hair and a sneering dirty look, back in the day he featured as butter-wouldn't-melt Peagreen, the spritely, flame-haired son of Pod and Homily Clock.

And he wasn't the only Hogwarts alumnus to feature in the movie, which also starred Professor Slughorn's muggle counterpart, Jim Broadbent - who played Felton's on-screen father, Pod - and Mark Williams, who is known for his turn as Arthur Weasley in the Harry Potter films.

The penny seems to have only just dropped for many Harry Potter fans, who have taken to Twitter to spread the word about the 'mind-blowing' revelation.

Drawing on the unexpected ties between other cast members, another tweeted: "Watching Arthur Weasley try and kill Draco Malfoy in The Borrowers and realising their family feud goes back much further than I knew."

Someone else joked: "Just watched The Borrowers for the first time in a long time and turns out the plot resolves around an evil MR POTTER who teams up with Arthur Weasley to catch a young Draco Malfoy who is actually the son of Professor Slughorn after all."
