The harry potter cast had become a big family during filming, but Tom Felton also found himself a true relative of his starring in one of the movies!
The actor covered the live-streamed saga with fans and revealed that in the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone appeared his maternal grandfather, Nigel Anstey.
Mr. Anstey played an unidentified Hogwarts teacher and you can see him in two scenes: he’s sitting next to Dumbledore when Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Draco first see the Great Hall.
Then he’s in the stands during quidditch’s game, next to reporter Lee Jordan. Here it is in this screenshot posted by the same actor who played Draco Malfoy:

“This is my grandfather! The one with the beard – exclaimed Tom Felton seeing his grandfather framed in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – With a white beard, a huge white beard near Lee Jordan.
The 33-year-old’s grandfather is known in the UK but not as an actor: Nigel Anstey is a geophysicist who has made great contributions to the study of seismic wave propagation.
