THEN AND NOW

Did you know that the very handsome male blonde villain in ‘Harry Potter’, Draco Malfoy (real name is Tom Felton) turned 35 yesterday, June 5?

The news has been confirmed on 

Twitter by the book series’ author J.K Rowling, who responded to a fan’s question about how old Draco would be turning as she knew from the books that it was his birthday on June 5.

J.K. Wrote, ”Draco turns 35 today. I’m not invited to the party, mainly because I keep telling girls they’re misguided to fancy him.”

Rowling previously wrote on Pottermore to warn fans about crushing on a villain.

“I have often had cause to remark on how unnerved I have been by the number of girls who fell for this particular fictional character,” she wrote. “All this has left me in the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent readers’ daydreams, as I told them, rather severely, that Draco was not concealing a heart of gold under all that sneering and prejudice and that no, he and Harry were not destined to end up best friends.”

Wait, Draco is 35? So, how old were you when you first watched him in 2001?
