Harry Potter actor Tom Felton has revealed that Draco Malfoy won't have aged well when we see a flash into the character's future in the last film.

"The years haven't been kind to me!" the actor laughed, referring to the aging make-up he and the other actors had to wear for filming the franchise's last few scenes.

"I was rather shocked with how far they went with it," he explained.

"It was very exciting the first day but slightly laborious by the third day as it took a few hours to get it on.

In those final scenes, Tom acts alongside his real-life girlfriend Jade Olivia who was asked to play his on-screen wife.

"She's worked on the films for five or six years so she knows the producers very well and the director. They actually asked me first, they said 'what do you think? How would you feel about asking Jade to do it?' and I thought 'well, if she's up for it'.

"She wasn't keen to be honest with you and I had to do a bit of twisting her arm but it was good fun, we were on Kings Cross for three days and hopefully we come across as a genuine husband and wife," he said.
