TikTok’s weird, isn’t it? And I’m not slamming it in a I’m-Donald-Trump-and-I-get-upset-when-someone-with-six-followers-impersonates-me kind of way.
In fact, I am one of those people with six followers. I put my heart and soul into keying out my background and adding special effects, only two get 17 views in as many months.
But the weirdest thing to come from TikTok has to be – gulp – #DracoTok, a trend which sees stans of the Harry Potter character add themselves into some sordid, risqué fanfic.
Having shared a set with Tom Felton on Netflix’s A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting, I wanted to ask Tamara Smart what Tom made of this bizarre trend.
(Admittedly, the only reason I’m questioning this series of videos is because I’m jealous people aren’t making them about me.)
“We actually haven’t spoken about #DracoTok yet,” said Tamara – who can also be seen in Disney+’s Artemis Fowl.
“I have been speaking to the director; the amazing Rachel Talalay, and she’d spoken to [Tom] about it, and he said that he was really surprised by it.
“I’m pretty sure he’s very amused by it; at first he was very freaked out to see it, because he didn’t know what to expect, but I think he now likes some of them,” joked Tamara.
And just when I thought my father’s TikTok account dedicated to vegetable friends was the weirdest thing to happen to that social platform.
