Gryffindors and Slytherins will forever be at odds even if the actors are friends in real life but perhaps the most magical moment came when Neville Longbottom actor Mathew Lewis clapped back at his good pal and fellow “Harry Potter” actor, Tom Felton.
Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the movies based on the J. K. Rowling book series, shared a photo of himself posing with a picture of him as a young wizard. 32-year-old Felton played Harry Potter’s nemeses from 2001 to 2011 and he wore the same Slytherin coat in the picture he shared and in the photo of a much younger Felton.
“Agings a b**ch,” he wrote in the caption of his post.
Not every actor for the iconic movie series feels the same way about father time. Matthew Lewis, who played Neville, could not let an opportunity to poke fun at a member of House Slytherin. “Speak for yourself lad!” Lewis exclaimed in the comment section of Felton’s post.
It has been a huge topic in pop culture how handsome Lewis grew up to be. While Felton is busy making jokes, Lewis is aging like a fine wine. The “Harry Potter” fans loved the back and forth between the two. “@mattdavelewis aging did you good !!” one fan wrote while another said, “@mattdavelewis neville u savage ??.”
The stars may play characters that do not see eye to eye but they are actually quite close and stay in touch regularly, according to E! News.
The stars have reunited several times over the years and they often share their friendship on social media. Last year, Felton hung out with Lewis in Venice Beach, CA but admitted to having a devious motive. “See how close he was to converting…. @mattdavelewis #gryffindork,” Tom captioned a picture of the two chilling in a bar. Felton was offering up a Slytherin robe to Lewis.
Tom was just being hard on himself and the fans wanted to make sure he felt the love. Famous Musician, Tom Fletcher was one of the first people to back the actor up. “You’ll always be beautiful to me TF,” he commented on the post.
One fan wrote, “You an OG now tho ???,” while another said, “You’re still so cute.” Many followers thanked Felton for making them smile. “u made my day hahahah,” a fan wrote and another made it clear that Felton was cool for life. “this is so legendary,” the fan said as they fawned over the stars.
Tom may be the favorite cast member when it comes to mini-reunions. The star recently got together with Emma Watson and taught her how to strum a few chords on the guitar.
Their reunion sparked rumors that the two were romanticly involved but that probably just fan fiction. Watson was interviewed by Paris Lees for Vogue where she made it clear that she is single but she prefers a different term. “I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered,” she told Vogue.
We will always love you Tom and a “Harry Potter” OG does not have to worry about aging.
