The Malfoys and the Longbottoms might not have gotten along in the Harry Potter universe, but the same can’t be said for the actors that play them!
Over the weekend, Jason Isaacs and Tom Felton (who played Lucius and Draco Malfoy in the Potter films) and Neville Longbottom actor Matthew Lewis had a mini reunion in Orlando where they took some time to enjoy Universal Studios’ Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
All three actors were in the area as part of Universal Studio’s A Celebration of Harry Potter event over the weekend, and lucky for us, Isaacs took to social media to share a few photos of their big reunion.
“Me, @TomFelton & @Mattdavelewis marvel at them getting older as I get younger. [love] to all the Potter fans who remind us to fight for the light,” tweeted Isaacs along with a group photo.
Later, the British actor took to Instagram to share an adorable father-son photo of himself and Felton checking out all the Potter fun at the theme park.
“Me and the wizarding blond bombshell reunited and wandering around Universal’s #wizardingworldofharrypotter extremely incognito,” wrote Isaacs, who also thanked fans for reminding him that the real moral of J.K. Rowling’s stories lie in the power of love and acceptance. “Huge love and thanks to all the Potteries who made it a glorious weekend. You’re brilliant— even the tragically unSlytherin.”
Me and the wizarding blond bombshell reunited and wandering around Universal's #wizardingworldofharrypotter extremely cognito. A welcome escape from the horrors of the world until we answered questions on stage and were reminded what the stories were all about: fighting fascism, embracing diversity and never giving up hope. Suddenly seemed a lot less fantastical. Still, huge love and thanks to all the Potterites who made it a glorious weekend. You're all brilliant – even the tragically unSlytherin. X
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling even took notice of the reunions, sharing one of the photos on Twitter with a heart and lightening bolt emoji.
Despite all the years that have gone by, it’s great to see that the love amongst all those involved in making the Harry Potter films is still just as strong as ever!
