Draco Malfoy actor Tom Felton has reunited with his on-screen father Jason Isaacs for a TikTok challenge aimed at Harry Potter fans.


The duo portrayed two of the most iconic villains from the fantasy film series, based on JK Rowling's novels, both known for their snarling delivery of Harry's surname.

Now, Felton has put a call out to fans via video sharing app TikTok to send in clips of their own versions of the "Potter" line, dubbing it the #PottahChallenge.

"I am searching the world for the very best 'Potter!' out there," Felton says as he introduces Isaacs' efforts, although ultimately seems unimpressed by what The OA star comes up with.

Check out the clip on TikTok.

The caption to the video reads: "My father heard about this," which pokes fun at Draco's tendency to complain about Hogwarts to his father, in a recurring line from the film series.

At the time of writing, more than two million TikTok users have liked the short clip, with thousands sending in their best attempts at the line in response.

The Harry Potter films wrapped up in 2011 with Deathly Hallows Part 2, but a sequel play titled The Cursed Child has been a mammoth hit, while spin-off Fantastic Beasts is continuing the Wizarding World on the big screen.

Fantastic Beasts 3 is currently in the works, with Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, Ezra Miller, Jude Law and Katherine Waterston expected to return.
