Harry Potter star Tom Felton teared up as he tuned into The Philosopher’s Stone for the ‘first time in years’.
The actor starred as Draco Malfoy in the film – the first in the wizarding franchise – in 2001, when he was just 13.
Just weeks after hosting a dreamy Harry Potter reunion, the 33-year-old shared a video as he took a walk down memory lane with Instagram fans, watching precisely the first 11 minutes and 11 seconds of the flick.
However, it quickly became a bit too much for Tom as he teared up while watching Professor Dumbledore leave baby Harry on the Dursley’s doorstep.
‘Keep it together,’ he urged himself during the scenes.
Side note: That still gets us too.
‘I’ve literally not seen this for probably 20 years,’ he told viewers as we got our first proper glimpse at Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) and Harry Melling (Dudley Dursley) – with their co-star joking that they both looked ‘about five’.
When we got to the 11 minute mark, Tom paused the film, joking that the ‘best is yet to come’.
‘I’m just tearing up rather than giving you commentary, but it will get better,’ he insisted.
‘We’re definitely going to try this again.’
Fans went wild for the clip, flocking to the comments to heap praise on his impromptu film club.
‘Can’t wait to see you react to young Draco Malfoy,’ a follower penned.
‘You’re literally the most precious person [on] earth,’ another said.
One replied: ‘Thank you for this. Made me feel like a kid again.’
As an Instagram user also asked the question on all our minds, screaming: ‘WHY HAVEN’T YOU WATCHED IT IN 20 YEARS.’
Tom kept to his word, blessing fans with the next instalment of his watch-along – but stopped just before we were introduced to Draco.
The videos come just weeks after he held a reunion with his Hogwarts co-stars, including Daniel and Rupert Grint, to celebrate the 19-year anniversary.
After Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was released in 2001, the series became one of the biggest franchises in the world.
The magic ended with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in 2011.
