Draco Malfoy Actor Gets Emotional Seeing Iconic Harry Potter Locations, Props & Costumes

Harry Potter star Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy, visits a Warner Bros. Studio Tour and gets emotional seeing all the original props and costumes, as well as recreations of iconic sets. Based on the beloved novels by J.K. Rowling, the first Harry Potter movie was released in 2001, introducing audiences to Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry, Emma Watson’s Hermione, Rupert Grint’s Ron, and Felton’s Draco. Felton has maintained a close relationship to the franchise since it ended in 2011, even writing a book about his experience making the movies.


Now, Felton and the official Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo Instagram account have shared posts showing off the actor’s visit to the “Making of Harry Potter” exhibit. One video shows the actor getting emotional after getting up close and personal with a number of props, costumes, and locations while another features him joining Harry Potter cast members Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) to explore more of the exhibit.

Why The Love For Harry Potter Lives On

Before the first movie had even been released, Rowling’s Harry Potter novels very quickly developing a large and very passionate fan following. The movies brought the author’s world to life to great effect and they only served to bolster the widespread love for the franchise. While Rowling herself has now become a controversial figure, complicating feelings about the franchise for some, the world of Harry Potter still remains as popular as ever.

Part of the reason for the films’ continued popularity is their perfect casting. Radcliffe, Watson, Grint, and Felton truly did become their characters, playing them from children to young adults. It wasn’t just the leads that captured audiences, however, with supporting characters like Alan Rickman’s Snape, Maggie Smith’s McGonagall, Richard Harris’ and Michael Gambon’s Dumbledores, and Ralph Fiennes’ Voldemort also perfectly rounding out the magical universe.

In addition to universal themes that audiences around the world can relate to, Harry Potter was a large part of many viewers’ childhoods. The main film series ran for 10 years, meaning many younger viewers who started watching with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in 2001 literally grew up with the franchise alongside its lead characters. While audiences around the world continue to have a passionate bond with the Harry Potter franchise, it’s clear that Felton and his two costars do as well.
