Tom Felton’s TikTok page is a dream come true for Harry Potter fans.

Now, Felton has a new TikTok challenge for Potterheads.

His task: performing a classic Harry Potter scene with him.

In a recent clip, Felton recorded himself reenacting a moment from. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, but with a catch. He wasn’t playing Malfoy, he was lip-synching as Harry.

Ironically, the scene features almost exclusively dialog from Malfoy. This time around, Felton took on a new part.

“Duet anyone?” Felton captioned his video.

The challenge, basically, asked other TikTokers to play Malfoy while Felton played Harry. Before long, countless excited users had uploaded videos performing alongside the actor.

As the duet videos starting pouring in, Felton decided to post a few to his own page — where all 8.8 million of his followers could see them. Naturally, some fans were pretty dang excited.

“What in the world? DREAMS CAN COME TRUE,” TikTok user @unusualbeaut commented after Felton shared her video.

“Thanks Tom lemme catch my breath real quick,” another TikToker, Ellie Bush wrote after Felton did the same for hers.

Felton’s heartwarming fan interactions are just the latest Harry Potter content to go viral on TikTok. In recent months, users have also used the app to point out hidden movie details — like a “secret” post-credits scene and a bizarre, “Mandela effect” moment.
