Tom Felton starred in this childhood classic long before Harry Potter


Orlaith Condon

We never recognised him.

Long before he was over-enunciating the ‘P’ in Potter, Tom Felton was starring in another one of our favourite childhood films.

Yes, Draco Malfoy might be what Tom is best known for now but before the Harry Potter films were released in 2001, you might have recognised him from something else.

Back in 1997, when he was just 10 years old, Tom Felton inhabited the role of Peagreen in The Borrowers.

Need reminding? Picture young Tom with a red wig and you’ve got it.

Yep, we couldn’t believe it either.

And now that we’ve seen a red-headed Felton, it’s weird seeing those platinum locks that used to look so familiar.
