Thomas Andrew Felton, known professionally as Tom Felton, is an English actor and musician who is globally recognized for playing Draco Malfoy, in the film adaptations of J.K. Rowling’s popular fantasy Harry Potter novels. He has amassed an estimated net worth of $20 million with an estimated $1 million+ annual salary as reported by Celebrity Net Worth.
Even though he is forever Draco Malfoy in the eyes of the world, Felton started his acting career at the young of eight and appeared in "The Borrowers" when he was just 10-years old. Apart from starring as Draco Malfoy, Felton has also acted in over thirty-four movies, including "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," "The Apparition," "Feed," and "Ophelia” among others, and has appeared in over 12 TV shows including DC comic’s popular show, “The Flash”.
Felton has starred as a voice actor in the Harry Potter video games and is also a musician having released five EPs and four singles, having decided to follow his other passion in the late 2000s. His music has been well received by both critics and fans but has failed to enter music charts.
Felton enjoyed a resurgence in the spotlight, after creating a TikTok account in July 2020 to relive his days as Draco Malfoy. His now-viral video, showed him attempting to stop the rain outside his window using his wand, which we assume he picked up as memorabilia from his days on the Harry Potter set. Initially, his content was all Harry Potter-based with a little music, old behind-the-scenes footage, and Hamilton content sprinkled in between.
Within a span of three months, Felton embraced his duty as an ambassador of the Harry Potter universe, starting a viral #Pottahchallenge, where he invited his followers and viewers to recreate his iconic scathing tone every time he stumbled upon young Harry in the movies.
Felton was the recipient of MTV's Movie Awards for Best Villain in 2009 and 2010 for his portrayal of Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. He received the Teen Choice Award in the Choice Movie Villain category for playing Draco Malfoy in Deathly Hallows Part 1. The whole cast for Harry Potter, including Felton, was awarded the Best Ensemble by Scream Award for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and another Best Cast from MTV Movie Awards for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

As mentioned above, his acting career has helped him earn his $20 million net worth, with a majority of it coming from the Harry Potter franchise and the TV shows he has been acting for since his days as Draco Malfoy ended. Multiple sources report he rakes in between $1 million annually apart from any sponsored content he does for brands. It is safe to say Felton made quite some money reprising his role as Draco Malfoy in all eight Harry Potters movie and even post movie spinoffs and specials within Rowling’s fantasy universe. He might forever be recognized as Draco Malfoy, but he has had other successful acting gigs as well.

With his net worth valued at $20 million, it is no surprise that Felton enjoys the finer things in life. The actor is known to splash his earnings on buying luxury cars and real estate. Mama Felton was a real-estate agent and when Tom got his first paychecks from the early Harry Potter movies, his mother invested a lot of that income towards real estate.
It is safe to say that Felton is a Lamborghini fanboy as he owns a Lamborghini Urus in black ($229,495) which he posted on Instagram while it was parked outside the Warner Bros studios during the filming of the Harry Potter reunion. AutoEvolution reports Felton also has a Lamborghini Aventador S ($825,914) and a Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder ($287,400) in his garage.
While Felton has spent a ‘moderate’ amount of money on real estate, it is speculated he currently lives in Surrey in his cozy home. Prior to shifting back to his hometown, Forbes reported Felton dropped a cool $1.275 million for his Hollywood Hills mansion in 2014. The 1,732 square-foot house came with two bedrooms and a guest house. Currently, the house is listed for sale for the price of $1.449 million.
Felton also owns a vintage Leica camera that can cost upwards of $5,799, which is often spotted in use on his Instagram.
Felton’s most notable expenses are his hobbies. An avid photographer, he is known for collecting vintage cameras and is a golf-lover. During his time in Los Angeles, Felton was often spotted at the links with his friends. Another favorite of Felton’s passions is traveling and vacationing. His social media is filled with aesthetic pictures from all over the world.

As per Celebrity Net Worth, Felton has visited hospitals while promoting Harry Potter movies and was a part of the 2011 Red Nose Day telethon in the UK. He participates in golf tournaments that have helped raise money for a variety of charitable causes.
