Harry Potter’s Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) is coming to Ghent!

FACTS celebrates 20 years of Harry Potter with a big actor name

FACTS celebrates 20 years of Harry Potter with actor Tom Felton. He is best known as Harry Potter character Draco Malfoy and scientist Julian Albert Desmond (aka Dr. Alchemy) in the recent The Flash series.

Tom Felton is of course best known as the blonde, spoiled Harry Potter character Draco Malfoy. As the ever-present nemesis of the protagonist, Tom Felton completed the whole Harry Potter arc as a key character, from Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone (2001) all the way to Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011). Even though he was set as quite the malicious wizard, he quickly grew to be a fan favourite among the Harry Potter fans.

In 2016, Tom Felton became a welcome new addition to the popular DC Comics series The Flash, where he took on the role of scientist Julian Albert Desmond, aka Dr. Alchemy. This genius archaeologist, historian and crime scene investigator left the superhero team in 2017, but fans are to this day still hoping for a return.

Tom Felton can also be seen in popular movies like Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Risen (2016). In the near future, he will star in the YouTube original thriller Origin.

This actor remains incredibly active in multiple fields of acting and never stops to entertain his followers, notably through his Instagram account, that now boasts 4.3 million followers. 


Tom Felton will be present at FACTS Fall 2018 on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 September, in Flanders Expo Ghent. He will be available for photoshoots, signing sessions and panels on both days. 

He will be accompanied by his colleagues David Tennant (Doctor Who / Jessica Jones), Jennifer Morrison (House / Once Upon a Time), Alan Tudyk (Star Wars / Disney), Charles Martinet (Super Mario) and Carolina Ravassa (Overwatch).
