Felton, who played Potter's school nemesis Draco Malfoy, commented on the post: "I used to bully him," with a pointing finger emoji. In a second comment, Felton added: "Went from Longbottom to Stronggotten" — a nod to Lewis' famous "glow-up," which saw fans comment on how much better looking the actor had become since starring as the young wizard. In June 2015, Lewis stunned the internet with his shirtless cover for Attitude magazine.
Fans even coined the term "Longbottomed," which stands for feeling awestruck when someone once known as a nobody turns into a "knight in shining armor," according to Urban Dictionary. Tuesday's wasn't the first interaction fans have enjoyed between the Longbottom and Malfoy stars. In November last year, 32-year-old Felton posted a photo of himself looking wearied beside a portrait of Malfoy as a child with the caption: "Aging's a b----." In another nod to his glow-up, Lewis commented on the post: "Speak for yourself lad!"
