When you think of Slytherins, the first character to come to mind (if not the Dark Lord himself) is probably Draco Malfoy. He was Harry’s adversary in the Harry Potter series. And as that opposition, he’s basically become the face of Slytherin House, just as Harry’s become the face of Gryffindor.
But it may come as a shock to some that dear Draco, deep down, really isn’t a Slytherin at all. Or at least the actor who plays him, Tom Felton, isn’t.
Just last week, the actor shared on Twitter that he’d finally be taking the Sorting Hat quiz on the Wizarding World website to find out which Hogwarts house he’s in. Felton even donned his Slytherin scarf and had his Slytherin banner hanging in the background. But as he surveyed the results, he found out the shocking truth. He became the very thing he swore to destroy: A Gryffindor.
“I’m in Gryffindor!” Felton said through clenched teeth, putting on a slight act to show his disdain for the results. But, what can we do? The Sorting Hat’s decision is final.
Tom Felton leaves Slytherin
After two decades of being a Slytherin, I’m sure Felton still feels like a Slytherin at heart despite what the hat (or “quiz,” rather) has to say.
And speaking of two decades gone, just last month, WarnerMedia finally announced their plans for the 20th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone into theaters. Unfortunately, that won’t include an HBO Max reunion special a la Friends. But there is a Harry Potter game show coming to WarnerMedia cable channels and HBO Max in honor of the occasion.
Helen Mirren will host the upcoming game show later this year. And some celebrity appearances have been teased for it as well. We’re guessing Felton will be one of the stars involved. But it remains to be seen whether he’ll be showing up in green and silver or red and gold.
