Draco Malfoy Is Actually a Gryffindor
In a weird twist of fate, Tom Felton, who played Hogwarts bad boy Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter franchise, was sorted into his Gryffindor. The British actor recently joined author J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore website and was cast into the house of the titular hero instead of his character’s own Slytherin.
Needless to say, he wasn’t pleased with the decision.
Today was the day. I finally did it. I joined Pottermore and was sorted into……..Gryffindor. Heart broken x #slytherinforlife

Fret not though, Felton was soon comforted by Rowling herself after the Earth-shattering news.
.@TomFelton I could’ve told you that years ago. I just didn’t want to spoil your motivation ;)

So, there you have it. Draco Malfoy is really a good guy and Harry Potter should’ve married Hermione Granger instead. Are you reevaluating your whole childhood now?
