In the next weeks Tom felton will become a celebrity again thanks to the special HBO Max titled “Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts”, in which will participate with his former co-stars to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the first film in the cinematographic saga, but he knows well that popularity will not last long. Despite the fact that the 34-year-old actor has continued to work regularly since he said goodbye to the character of Draco Malfoy – and also has 11 million followers in Instagram-, in his daily life he still enjoys a surprising level of anonymity.

“I can have the best of both worlds. I keep taking the subway and the bus and I go for a walk with my dog ​​in the park, “he explained in an interview to the portal Square mile to make it clear that his fame cannot be compared to that of Emma Watson, the actress who was in charge of giving life to Hermione Granger and with whom she has been credited with more than just a beautiful friendship on many occasions. “I saw Emma the other night: she is exactly the same as 10 years ago. It is almost impossible for them not to recognize it. In my case, when they see me, a lot of people whisper: ‘Is that actor, whatever his name is?’ “

However, Tom’s life could have been very different if he had managed to take on the role of the boy wizard who ended up going to Daniel Radcliffe, to whom there is no doubt that it costs much more to go unnoticed. Chris columbus, who directed the first two installments of the saga, was the one who decided to turn Tom into the antagonist of Harry Potter, because he considered that he was too blond to be credible as the protagonist.
