Harry Potter actor Tom Felton and Matthew Lewis have reunited more than a decade after starring together in the hit film franchise. The pair were deadly rivals in the wizarding movies, with Tom playing school bully Draco Malfoy. Meanwhile, Matthew aka Neville Longbottom was struggling but turned out to be one of the story’s greatest heroes.
However, the pair, now both in their 30s, looked very different today as they met up after years apart. Interestingly, Felton and Lewis did battle again, not in Hogwarts with wands, but in the slightly less magical setting of a London shopping centre. Bewildered shoppers were treated to the sight of the duo looking older but no less determined as they played each other on the Nintendo Switch.
The pair took on one another in a Slytherin versus Gryffindor battle to promote the launch of Nintendo Switch Sports. Still referring to Matt’s character’s name, Tom said, “We both know Potter fans love our fictional rivalry and so do myself and Longbottom. It’s always a pleasure to reunite, especially when we get to meet over some really fun games and friendly competition!”
Felton and Lewis were competing after survey named Harry Potter and the evil Lord Voldemort as the greatest fictional rivalry of all time. Both Tom and Matthew have kept up their acting careers, with the Draco star going on to play Doctor Alchemy in the US drama series The Flash. Meanwhile, Matt appeared in BBC One’s The Syndicate and Channel 5’s All Creatures Great And Small.
