London: Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in ‘Harry Potter’, says he lost out on much of his childhood as a consequence of starring in the wizarding franchise.

Felton said that fame and fortune were no substitute for missing out on his formative years.

“One thing that people keep on saying to me is that the wealth and the fame must have made up for missing out on my childhood,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

“But the idea of money — putting a price on your childhood — is ridiculous. You will never get those years back and you can’t put a price on them.

“And to me, fame is not a positive thing. The idea of being famous is a lot better than the reality. It’s fantastic when you go to premieres and people cheer you, but it’s not real. And it’s totally not my approach to get my name on a club door just because I can,” he added.
