But what about the rest of Tom Felton's on-screen family? Well, here at Daily Star – to celebrate Tom's birthday, we're taking a deep dive into the Malfoy family and what they've been getting up to since Harry Potter concluded.

From a successful filmmaking career, to a Hollywood sweetheart and a tragic death – the Malfoy family have had quite a time since the Hogwarts days.

Draco Malfoy – Tom Felton

Born September 22, 1987, Tom turns 34 today.

He began appearing in commercials from a young age and made his film debut in the role of Peagreen Clock in The Borrowers in 1997.

The Draco actor was in a relationship with stunt assistant Jade Olivia Gordon from April 2008 until early 2016.

And she even played Draco's wife in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

In January 2021, he was confirmed for the lead role in Sara Sugarman’s Save The Cinema which began filming at the start of the year in Wales.

In July 2021 he released an EP named YoOHoO. He shared the cover of the collection with his 10million Instagram followers, to which fans praised the actor and singer for his new work.

One fan penned: "Love this EP Tom! My boyfriend and I keep listening to YoOHoO on repeat. Congrats."

He's also pretty big on TikTok and has more than 9million followers.

In March 2020, Isaacs played in the lead role of Dr Paul Griffith in the CBS drama pilot Good Sam.

In August 2020, Jason revealed that he had battled a "decades-long love affair with drugs".

He spoke of how a bartender had slipped him and his friends a bottle of Southern Comfort when they were just 12 years old.

He said: "The next morning, I woke up with a splitting headache, stinking of puke with a huge scab and the memory of having utterly shamed myself.

"I just know I chased the sheer ecstatic joy I felt that night for another 20 years with increasingly dire consequences."

Eventually, he realised he needed help and achieved sobriety but asked fans not to congratulate him on his efforts, writing on Twitter: "Please don't anyone congratulate me or tell me they're proud of me. I am and was useless by myself. Pride's the worst part."

He continued: "If you feel the desperate need to click, retweet it to let other people know there's a solution out there."

Narcissa Malfoy – Helen McCrory

Helen McCroy portrayed the role of Narcissa Malfoy in the final three Harry Potter films.

She went on to star in many theatre productions before playing Polly Gray in Peaky Blinders.

In August 2016, McCrory was confirmed to play Emma Banville in ITV drama series Fearless, which began airing in June 2017.

She sadly died of cancer at her home in London on April 16, 2021, aged 52.

Her husband Damian Lewis announced her death on Twitter where he stated that she had died "peacefully at home, surrounded by a wave of love from friends and family".

A year prior to her death, during the Covid-19 pandemic, she and her husband supported Feed NHS, a programme to give food from high street restaurants to NHS staff, and had raised £1million for the charity by early April 2020.

She was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2017 New Year Honours for services to drama.
