Tom Felton rose to fame as Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” films, but little did the public realize that he earned millions of dollars despite appearing in less than an hour of all films combined; how much is his net worth?
Celebrity Net Worth estimates the 35-year-old actor’s net worth is around $20 million. His earnings are primarily derived from his work as an actor.
Aside from the “Harry Potter” franchise, he has also appeared in films such as “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” “Megan Leavy,” “Feed,” “The Borrowers,” and on television shows such as “The Flash.”
Felton is also a musician, having founded his own record label, Six String Productions. His first song, “Hawaii,” was released in 2010, and it marked the start of a successful music career for him, as he later released more music-related projects.
According to the Daily Mail UK, the English actor paid £14 million ($16,269,330) for his role as Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” franchise.
The character of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft was Harry Potter’s school adversary. He appeared in eight films.
Felton’s role became popular among fans, but according to IMBd, he only appeared in 31 minutes and 45 seconds of all movies.
Because he was not a main character in the franchise, his screen time was significantly less than the three major roles played by Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley).
According to the outlet, Radcliffe had 539 minutes of screentime, Watson had 205 minutes, and Rupert had 211 minutes.
According to the Mirror, his appearance in the films is worth $451,613 per minute of screen time.
Felton previously admitted in an interview that he was irresponsible with his money when the films were released.
Since he was younger, the actor admitted to purchasing “a lot of rubbish things” such as skateboards, clothes, and other “typical teenage stuff.” Later in life, he “wasted a lot of money” on cars such as BMWs for himself and his family.
Felton learned his lesson when he had a run-in with the taxman, but his finances improved after he hired an accountant.
