After 20 Yrs, Harry Potter & Draco Malfoy Are No Longer Our Heart-Throbs

Hanima Anand |Mar 25, 2021

The two famous actors who starred in the legendary Harry Potter series couldn’t maintain their popularity due to profound changes in appearance.

First released in 2001, the Harry Potter film series became an instant hit. It is also the 3rd highest-grossing film series with total revenue of over $7.7 billion worldwide. Along with the movies, actors and actresses that starred in the 8 films have garnered a massive base of fans across the globe.

Most famous among the star cast must be the two handsome boys Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy). This duo of good boy and bad boy used to create storms among the youth wherever they appeared. However, after 20 years, people are shocked to see a shared photo of both actors.

As can be seen, both stars lost their typical cuteness in their childhood and looked much more mature. It seemed the two actors didn’t care much about their visual features after the lifetime roles. Take a look at how these friends have transformed over the years!

No matter how hard he tries, Daniel could never walk out of the shadow of Harry Potter. In fact, Daniel is among the most sought-after names of the sci-fi and fantasy genres, but whenever people see him on the screen, they immediately remember he was Harry Potter.

Daniel Radcliffe started acting at the age of 10 with a TV film before having his feature debut in The Tailor of Panama in 2001. After being cast in Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, Daniel had spent 10 years for the iconic role.

During this time, he was clearly one of the highest-paid actors in the film industry. He also received lots of awards for Harry Potter’s performance in the series.

After the eighth sequel was wrapped, Daniel sought more roles in various kinds of movies, such as the horror film The Woman in Black, sci-fi fantasy Victor Frankenstein or even the comedy-drama Swiss Army Man. Recently, he stars in a TV series named Miracle Workers.

To get rid of the image of Harry Potter, Daniel adopted an opposite style with his adorable childhood version. The overgrown beard or rustic fashion gradually helps people to realize he is now a grown-up and no longer the Gryffindor seeker.

Though he played a rather negative role in the iconic series, Tom Felton still gathered a huge fan base for his Draco Malfoy’s image.

No matter what genre he’s in, Tom Felton’s movies mainly receive critical acclaims and commercial success. However, to fans of Harry Potter, he is no longer the elegant Draco Malfoy. Tom looks older than his colleagues of the same age due to the rugged style.

Time flies and he changes a lot.

Having said that, we must come to terms with the fact that Daniel and Tom are now grown-up men and they are professional actors. There’s no reason to ask them to maintain the look of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. Be open and respect their endeavor of bringing us quality movies!
