There’s no denying actor Tom Felton‘s impact on movies through his role as Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films. Since securing the role at 12 years old, he has become one of the most celebrated actors from the franchise. In September 2021, the U.K. native was hospitalized after unexpectedly collapsing on a golf course during the Ryder Cup celebrity tournament, so fans are eager to see the actor recover and take on his next role.
After over 20 years in the business, how much is Tom worth? The performer’s estimated net worth is approximately $20 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. How has he collected so much cash over the years? Here’s a breakdown.
Tom’s Work on ‘Harry Potter’ Brought in a Lot of Money
