On Tuesday, Tom Felton delighted fans when he continued rewatching "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" via Instagram Live.

In early December, he started rewatching the film for the first time in 20 years. In two separate livestreams, he viewed the first 33 minutes of the movie, and almost immediately got emotional.

The Draco Malfoy actor continued to offer his own commentary as he embarked on the next 22 minutes of the magical film and saw his peroxide-blond character on screen for the first time.

Felton had some choice words to share about Draco Malfoy

Upon watching Draco's first on-screen appearance - the scene where the first-year students exit the Hogwarts Express - Felton laughed and said, "There I am in the background … the little cocky s---."

But it was clear from his facial expressions and tone that the actor has a fondness for his on-screen character, despite Malfoy's shortcomings.

After calling himself a "little s---" once again, he continued his critique while watching the defining scene where Harry rejects Malfoy's offer of friendship.

Siding with his on-screen nemesis, the actor added, "I'm not sure who I want to defend there. Screw you, Potter! But no, screw you, Malfoy. He's a real d---."

Felton was just as excited to see his costars on screen

The British actor seemed to be filled with fond memories every time one of his costars came on screen.

He almost missed Hermione Granger's introductory scene while checking in on the Instagram Live chat, but when he glanced over and saw her, he yelled, "Oh young Emma!" and rewound it to appreciate her full entrance.

"She's fantastic," he added. "Bravo!"

Later, when he spotted Neville, he said, "Matthew Lewis, how different do you look now? Crikey."

When Felton saw Devon Murray, who played Seamus Finnigan, during the Great Hall scene he yelled that his costar was "smashing it!"

The actor took viewers behind the magic, sharing fun facts about the film

Alongside his self-deprecating commentary, Felton also shared behind-the-scenes secrets about how the magic of "Harry Potter" was brought to the big screen.

As he watched the first years making their way across the lake to Hogwarts, he said, "Leavesden Studios, just ruining all the magic for you, aren't I?" before adding, "Should keep my mouth shut, really."

The actor then shattered the illusion of the enchanted night sky in the Great Hall, pointing out that "the candles are on fishing strings."

In another entertaining moment, Felton appeared to be surprised as he spotted his real-life grandfather serving as an extra in the Great Hall.

"That's my grandfather on the far right, right now, not Dumbledore ... ," he said. "Good lord, I had no idea."

Finally, when McGonagall called Susan Bones up to the Sorting Hat, Felton shared that the actress who played the young witch was actually director Chris Columbus' daughter, Eleanor.

During the watch along, the actor raised awareness for the Best Friends Animal Society, and the fans watching helped him raise over $3,000 for the organization by the end of the stream.

Felton is known for his love of animals, and his beloved black Labrador, Willow, is a regular fixture on his Instagram.
