You may all be familiar with Tom Felton who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter Franchise and may even have grown up watching his movies. Though Draco Malfoy is his most prominent role, he is certainly not limited to just the Harry Potter franchise. He may not have had made major headlines with his more recent movies but he is still working hard to make a huge splash in the Hollywood once again.
Felton, in recent years, has done various projects including in the small screen as well. Find out all about his growing career, his net worth, and how he has made a living through it.
The Curse Of Draco Malfoy; Felton's Career
Felton began his acting career at the age of eight through commercials and adverts for various companies. His feature film debut was in the movie The Borrowers as the character named Peagreen Clock.
Following this, he appeared in movies such as Anna and the King and Second Sight 2. The roles in those movies did not give him much fame or recognition.
It was in 2001 that he appeared as Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to become a part of one of the biggest movie franchise.
The movie was based on the book of the same name written by J. K. Rowling and had the cast of future Hollywood stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson. Felton has since appeared in all the movies of the franchise.
There is no doubt that Harry Potter is one of the biggest and successful movie franchise and as a cast of the movie, Felton earned huge fame through it. However, his fame came with a cost which was the curse of being typecast.
He had played the character of an antagonist to the lead character Harry Potter, and he did the role with such perfection that it was hard for him to not be cast in villainous roles in the future projects.
He played villainous characters in the movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the TV show Murder in the First which made it hard for Hollywood to see him to fit any other role than that of a villain.
To step away from the curse of typecasting, he has tried supporting roles in the movies A United Kingdom and Ophelia. But none of these happened to be what we would call a big box office success.
Recently, he has jumped to the smaller screen with the show like The Flash and his upcoming project Origin. He plays one of the main characters in his new TV show which is still in the post-production phase.
He does look to slowly build and grow his career over time. We hope that in the future, he gets to remove this curse and play a diverse role to show the audience his full potential as an actor.
Net Worth of Tom Felton
Felton, for a long time, was part of the Harry Potter Franchise that is worth billions of dollars. Being a part of a billion-dollar franchise, it comes as no surprise that he has the net worth of $35 million.
With a huge bank balance, Felton had been living an easy and comfortable life in his $1.275 million worth house in Los Angeles, CA. However, he has recently listed his house for the asking price of $1.449 million.
He has many upcoming projects, both movies and TV shows lined up and it only shows that his net worth will keep increasing in the future.
