Despite the last Harry Potter film being released in 2011, thanks to TikTok one character in particular is having a resurgence in popularity: Draco Malfoy.

It seems everyone loves a bad boy, as thousands of posts have been dedicated to him.

Fans worked out just how little screentime the character had, played by Tom Felton.

An IMDB list of the total screen time for each character has resurfaced, and Harry’s Slytherin nemesis had just 31 minutes on screen across the entire collection of films.

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Draco only appears for one minute and 15 seconds.

Fans were stunned, as he made such an impression they thought he was in the films for much longer.


One joked that he just lived in Harry’s head rent free.

Tom Felton sent fans into a panic when he joined TikTok and started reacting to some of the videos they’d posted. Known as #DracoTok, it’s racked up hundreds of millions of views.

Tom commented on some of the videos, sending fans into an embarrassed meltdown, before posting his own response video with the hashtag #amidoingthisrightyet and #tiktom as he jokingly looked amused and horrified by some of the posts.

He later added the comment, “Hide nothing, I find this all hilarious!” after fans started taking posts down.

Do you get all of the fuss about Draco?
