The older Malfoy will be played by Alex Price.
Fans are torn between feeling highly amused and unabashedly thrilled at the new images of Draco Malfoy for upcoming play 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'. Alex Price from 'Penny Dreadful' will be playing the Slytherin, and he looks pretty unforgettable in a long, glossy ponytail.
Jk Rowling's newest story is coming soon
If you hadn't guessed, Draco pretty much takes after his father Lucius with the hair, the icy scowl and the ridiculously well-tailored wizard's robes for 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'. And to make things even better, his son Scorpius Malfoy - played by Anthony Boyle - is not far off what Draco looked like as a Hogwarts student (played by Tom Felton), though slightly less slick.
'The world outside has been brilliantly marshalled and been kept away from us by our producers', Price said in a statement. 'It's only slowly starting to rear its head now and it's intimidating, a little scary, but also very exciting because Jack is such a brilliant writer and he's taken the story into a great place 19 years later, particularly for Draco.'

The relationship between arch-enemies Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy was left rather ambiguous in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2'. We know that the Malfoys had a difficult time of it, losing their home to Lord Voldemort, regretting their decision to remain faithful to him, and the story ended with the family's escape from the surviving Death Eaters at the end of the war.
Harry had risked his own life to save Draco, and Draco's mother Narcissa abandoned her support for Voldemort when she lied about Harry's death. And in the epilogue, Harry and Draco do at least politely acknowledge each other at King's Cross. So where does that leave them? We'll have to wait for the debut of 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' at London's Palace Theatre to find out.
