Tom Felton has been a Harry Potter fan's dream lately. The actor has been rewatching the famous movies on Instagram and invited us all along for the journey while he raises money for an animal charity.

In early December his followers were delighted when he watched the first 11 minutes and 11 seconds of the first Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Last week he was back on the 'gram to talk through the rest of the film and share some fun behind the scenes secrets, while reminding us that his grandfather also appeared in the film.

"That's my grandfather on the far right, right now," he pointed out during the scene where Harry, Ron, Hermione and Draco all see the Great Hall for the very first time and his grandfather, famous geophysicist Nigel Anstey, is sat next to Dumbledore. He also makes an appearance in two more scenes, including the quidditch match.

Watching the scenes back 20 years later has understandably been an emosh roller coaster for the actor, who previously cried when he watched the start of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

"I'm just tearing up rather than giving you commentary but it will get better. I think the best is yet to come in these movies! We're definitely going to try this again," he told his Instagram followers.
