House loyalty is real when it comes to Hogwarts. But that doesn't mean Slytherins won't still try to convince the members of another house to join them. And that's exactly what Harry Potter star Tom Felton recently tried to do.
Slytherins have a bad reputation. Sure, they have a high number of dark wizards counted among their ranks, but there are great Slytherins as well. That's likely one of the arguments used by Tom Felton, who played loyal Slytherin Draco Malfoy in the films, while trying to convince fellow Harry Potter castmate Matthew Lewis, aka Neville Longbottom, to switch houses. But unfortunately for Felton, house loyalty goes both ways, and Lewis didn't seem too keen on leaving Gryffindor.
We all know those Slytherins are cunning, but it didn't seem to work this time. Lewis looks totally unconvinced in the photo, despite Felton seeming to shove a very nice Slytherin backpack into his arms. Maybe Lewis is attached to the Gryffindor colors, or maybe it's that same loyalty that keeps him in the house, even if he liked the sleek Slytherin green and silver combo better.
Lewis posted the photo to his own Instagram account, saying, "Take your Slytherin paws off me, you damn dirty ape!" So it might be an uphill battle to turn him against Gryffindor, despite Felton's claims that Lewis was close to switching.
But we're betting Felton won't give up on his #griffindork that easily. After all, those Slytherins are ambitious ...
