Tom Felton to Host a Live “Harry Potter” TikTok Screening
Tom Felton, who played the infamous Slytherin Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series, will be livestreaming a screening of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on TikTok on March 2, at 8:00 p.m. ET.
Since it premiered almost 20 years ago in 2001, Felton has only watched the film in full once, so he has joined up with Peacock, the streaming service for NBC, to fix this. He will be going down memory lane on Peacock’s TikTok account, giving us a live commentary of his opinions of and reactions to the film.

Felton is no newbie to livestreaming on social media, recently showing us that he is a much wittier and friendlier individual than his character Malfoy, who is known for his snide comments and bullying ways.
November saw him host a Home Party, where he answered fans’ questions, serenaded the audience, and carried out a Q&A. Then in December, he watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in small segments on Instagram Live, pointing out his grandfather who also starred in the film, getting excited watching his young costars, and becoming emotional seeing the late Alan Rickman (Severus Snape).
December’s Instagram Live was the first time Felton had properly watched the film since 2001, and we all know that rewatching a film can still be enthralling and exciting, revealing moments you didn’t notice the first time, so we’re excited to see what’s in store for him.
To give his fans a little sneak peek of what to expect from his takeover, Felton took to his own TikTok to challenge his followers to a duet.
