Uh-oh. Does the Hogwarts Sorting Hat need a tune-up?
Though he's most famous for playing Draco Malfoy, the slimiest of Slytherins, actor Tom Felton has a confession to make. According to a quiz on Pottermore, he's actually a Gryffindor just like Harry, Hermione, and Ron. Professor McGonagall is not going to be pleased.

After Felton tweeted the news in disbelief — gotta love that #Slytherinforlife hashtag — Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling chimed in. Her detested Draco may be a real-deal Slytherin, but Felton, she claims, is an undeniably good egg. Break out the scarlet and gold scarves.
Besides, it could be worse. Can you imagine Draco as a Hufflepuff?
