Tom Felton may have played one of film’s most recognizable villains in the past decade, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love him for it!

The Harry Potter actor actually turns 29 today, so in honor of his birthday, we decided to take a look back at his ~first red carpet appearance~ which was a whopping SIXTEEN YEARS AGO!

Okay, hold on for one second, we need to process that. That means that when Tom was strutting down the red carpet for his first major movie role, some people in high school now weren’t even born yet. MIND. BLOWN!

Le sigh. What a cutie! Happy birthday, Tom!
