He's long since changed out of his Slytherin robes, but Tom Felton still loves dabbling in the Dark Arts.

The British actor, 26, best known for his role as Harry Potter's nemesis Draco Malfoy in the films, is currently starring as a ruthless Silicon Valley prodigy in TNT's new crime drama, Murder in the First.
