Potter star swaps magic for music

Tom Felton

Tom Felton, the actor who plays Harry Potter baddie Draco Malfoy, looks like he could be swapping magic for music after apparently landing a record deal!

The 22-year-old has reportedly signed up with an independent label called Six Strings Productions.

The actor writes his own music, sings and plays the guitar.

The keen musician has previously uploaded videos of himself singing his songs onto YouTube and made the songs available to download.

The news of a record deal was revealed by Six Strings Productions on their Twitter page.

But don't worry, Draco fans, the Brit isn't giving up on acting - and he'll be back on the big screen later in the year for the first part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
