Harry Potter’s Tom Felton Honours On-Screen Mother Helen McCrory In An Emotional Post
Helen McCrory’s demise shocked all her fans across the globe. The British star’s husband, Damian Lewis, announced she had died of cancer on Friday, and ever since then her co-stars have been honouring and remembering the actress through social media posts. Harry Potter‘s Tom Felton, who essayed the role of her on-screen son Draco Malfoy in the franchise, also honoured the actress with a heartfelt post on Instagram.
Sharing a still from Harry Potter, Felton wrote, “So sad to say farewell so suddenly – I never took the chance to tell her, but she helped shape me as a person so much – on & off-screen.” McCrory played Narcissa Malfoy in the final three Harry Potter films.
Harry Potter’s Tom Felton added, “She was always relentlessly herself- razor-sharp wit – silver-tongued – kind & warm-hearted – she suffered no fools yet had time for everyone. thank you for lighting the way forward & holding my hand when I needed it xx.” Check out his post below:

Jason Issacs also reflected on McCrory’s legacy in his own post, saying, “Decades ago Helen and I auditioned together for a film. I came home and said to [my wife] Emma ‘I think I’ve just met the greatest actress I’ve ever seen.’ After years of watching her mesmerize audiences, I don’t think that any more…I know it.”
“Luckily, I eventually found out that she was also scabrously funny, shockingly naughty and with an empathetic heart the size of a planet. As continually starstruck as I was on the Harry Potter films, being screen-married to and giggle with the great Helen McCrory will always be a highlight. Her proudest achievement, though, was building and loving the family that was her bedrock. They’ve lost so much and I send all my love to Damian and the kids. xxx.” Issacs essayed the role of McCrory’s husband in the Harry Potter franchise.
