It’s official, Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies belongs in Gryffindor. And yes, he is heartbroken.
Today was the day. I finally did it. I joined Pottermore and was sorted into……..Gryffindor. Heart broken x #slytherinforlife

What’s really funny is that Rowling apparently knew all along but “didn’t want to spoil [his] motivation.”
For some of us, our Hogwarts house is as much a part of us as whether we were in band or sports. When I joined Pottermore, I was thankful that my house results came out as expected: Ravenclaw. Not sure what I would have done if it had come out any differently. As much as I respect the other houses (sans Slytherin) I might have had an identity crisis if the official results deviated. Then again, maybe I would have told myself that if the Sorting Hat were real, I could have pulled a Harry and swayed it into letting me in Ravenclaw instead.
And if you haven’t seen the Lady Gaga Parody, “Sorted This Way,” you need to. 😉
