It seems that the Sorting Hat may have made an error. Actor Tom Felton, who portrayed Slytherin Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, joined Pottermore and was sorted into Gryffindor. He tweeted the news, likely horrifying legions of Harry Potter fans. J.K. Rowling, however, was not surprised at all and tweeted her support of the Sorting Hat’s choice.
See the tweets after the break.
Today was the day. I finally did it. I joined Pottermore and was sorted into……..Gryffindor. Heart broken x #slytherinforlife
