Malfoy, 31 minutes in total and 14 million dollars in appearance…
Actor Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the movie “Harry Potter,” has been paid a total of $14 million to appear in the series, the Daily Mail reported on the 26th (local time).
Thirty-five-year-old Tom Felton received such a huge sum of money, even though he appeared for only 31 minutes in all eight episodes of the series.
Felton showed off his presence in the “Harry Potter” series by starring as Harry Potter’s school rival Malfoy.
According to IMDB, he appeared on the screen for about 31 minutes and 45 seconds throughout the franchise. Naturally, it is much shorter than the three main characters in the series, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint. Daniel had 539 minutes, Emma had 205 minutes, and Rupert had 211 minutes.
It is also slightly less than Ralph Fines (37 minutes and 15 seconds), who played Lord Voldemort. Robbie Coltrane, who also played Rubus Hagrid, was caught on camera for 45 minutes and 45 seconds in the series.
According to The Mirror, Felton’s fee is equivalent to $451,613 per minute.
Felton admitted in a previous interview with the Daily Mail that he had been spending heavily for some time after “Harry Potter.” He said, “I bought a lot of trash that children buy. Skateboards, clothes, and typical teenage stuff.And as soon as possible, I bought a car (mainly BMW) and spent a lot of money for me and my family,” he confessed.
However, at some point, he confessed that he had a problem with the tax accountant and that his finances were controlled with the help of the accountant.
Meanwhile, the “Harry Potter” series, which was released from 2001 to 2011, is the fourth highest-grossing film series ever, earning a total of $7.7 billion.
