The award-winning actor portrayed devious Slytherin student Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series from 2001 to 2011.

But now he will perform in front of an audience in virtual reality.

It’s part of a retelling of the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when Guy “Guido” Fawkes, 35, attempted to blow up the Palace of Westminster.

The multi-sensory high-tech adventure mixes both live actors and digital stars for over an hour and a half.

“I’m delighted to play a character who is so famous (and notorious!) for being at the center of the most famous conspiracy conspiracy in British history,” said Tom.

“Guy Fawkes is an intriguing character with a complex story and passionate supporters and detractors, then and now.

“Bringing the character to life through virtual reality and allowing him to interact with the audience in a way never before is exciting.”

Gary Beadle, who famously played Patrick Trueman’s son Paul in EastEnders, is also among the 50+ people.

In fact, since Harry Potter ended, Tom has been busy with a number of big screen projects and has also just made his West End debut.

Beyond Hogwarts, he has appeared in Planet of the Apes, Planet of the Apes, A United Kingdom, US TV series The Flash and most recently the Netflix film The Forgotten Battle.

Last weekend he joined the award-winning stage thriller 2:22 A Ghost Story.

The Gunpowder Plot opens deep within the Tower Vaults of the Tower of London on May 20th.

Tom starred in all eight Harry Potter films from 2001 to 2011.
