'Fame can really affect you': Tom Felton reflects on being part of the Harry Potter franchise

Tom Felton was propelled into international fame alongside fellow unknowns Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson when he was cast as sneering Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series. Outside of the core Golden Trio, Malfoy is likely the most well-known of the franchise's younger actors, and Felton played him in all eight films. Since then, he's acted in films such as The Flash and A Babysitter's Guide to Monster Hunting.

In 2021, the Harry Potter series is gearing up for a big year. The 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, the first Harry Potter film, was honored in November, and everyone involved has been reminiscing. In reality, Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson are among the cast members of HBO Max's massive Harry Potter reunion. Return to Hogwarts, Harry Potter's 20th Anniversary, will be available for streaming on January 1, taking fans on a trip through the franchise's history. Felton is one of several cast members who will be attending the event, which is unsurprising considering his long-term commitment to the show.

Felton discussed his Harry Potter-induced fame in a recent interview. The actor wondered if the enormous pressure and attention that comes with acting in a popular international series weigh on him in any way. As it turns out, the answer is no. "It can really effect you," Felton told Screenrant. I try my hardest to accomplish the best I can. We don't have many instances since, obviously, there were no social media when we did it, which was 20 years ago. There was nothing to be found. To unexpectedly find yourself in a universe where you may type in whatever you want... I told my mother she couldn't Google me."

On January 1, HBO Max will premiere Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts.
