There’s nothing like a heartwarming photo to start a Monday. And that snapshot is coming your way… The Malfoy’s. Who knew Harry Potter’s feuding family could be so heartwarming? Social media has provided us with a moment that will make more than a few people wax nostalgic (even if you dislike Slytherin House).
Actor Jason Isaacs has appeared in support of his son from the Harry Potter film franchise, Tom Felton, who has been starring in the play ‘2:22 A Ghost Story’, which has been playing in London for the past few days. The two actors posted heartwarming photos on social media, with Isaacs, 59, proudly showing off his former on-screen son.
“Very proud and, along with the audience, thrilled to see my son commanding the stage today, breaking hearts and filling trousers,” he wrote. “Equally terrifying, he’s recording music and also has a book to publish. I’m satisfied if I get the bins out on the right day (doesn’t happen often). I’d hate him if I didn’t love him.”
Felton, 34, also posted a cute selfie of the two. “My dad found out about this play I was in,” he wrote in the caption of the photo with the moment that every fan of the Harry Potter saga will enjoy seeing.
Felton played Draco Malfoy, the enemy of the saga’s protagonist, and his evil father, Lucius Malfoy, was played by Isaacs in all eight Harry Potter films, beginning more than two decades ago with ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ in 2001.
Felton continues to work as a film actor in addition to taking to the stage. Isaacs has been seen in more productions. Last April, he premiered ‘Mass’ in Spain, a desolate work that was highly praised at the festivals it passed through. He has also appeared in ‘El arma del engaño’ and in series such as ‘Sex Education’ and ‘Good Sam’, in addition to other projects pending release.
The Harry Potter Saga has welcomed hordes and hordes of fans since the publication of the first book by J.K. Rowling. The films and the prequel ‘Fantastic Beasts’, the third instalment of which has been released in 2022, have been well received. For now it is not known when the fourth and fifth films will be released.
The iconic Potter father and son duo previously appeared together for this year’s HBO Max special, Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts. The acclaimed (and long-awaited) special also featured franchise stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and Ralph Fiennes, among others.
