When you think of Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter's nemesis, you tend to think "evil" or possibly "annoying." But you also think ... "pale." Now that actor Tom Felton is free of Malfoy's clutches, though, he's finally able catch some rays.

Felton had been forbidden to tan for an entire decade in order to maintain his pallid allure. Now, according to the Daily Mail, he's vacationing in Florida, also known as the Sunshine State.

You think it's hard to keep a script under wraps? Try the same thing for your skin. Previously he would have to "slap on the SPF50 and sit under an umbrella with three caps on."

Tanning wasn't the only activity restricted for Felton and the other stars of Harry Potter. "I certainly haven't had much freedom to keep my own hair color, or lay in the sun, or do anything remotely dangerous like skiing," he said.

You know how with great power comes great responsibility? This is more of a case of "with a great job comes great sunblock."
