A Harry Potter extra went on to marry Hollywood A-lister Margot Robbie – and she loves showing off about his magical movie appearances.
Former Neighbours star Margot, 31, gushed over husband Tom Ackerley's brief stint in the blockbuster franchise during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
And while he didn't have a large part, Margot confessed that if she'd known sooner they would have tied the knot a lot quicker.
Tom, 31, appears as a Hogwarts student, with Draco Malfoy (played by Tom Felton) pushing past him to get to Buckbeak in a scene in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
It's believed he also appeared as an extra in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets too.
Back in January 2020, Margot spoke on The Graham Norton Show and confessed she was a "massive nerd" for JK Rowling's magical stories.
She went on: "My husband is in the Harry Potter movies. I know, I was like, 'Had you told me sooner we would've been married very quickly.'
"But he was an extra, when he was a little kid he was one of the Slytherin extras when Draco pushes some kids out of the way to see Buckbeak in the third book. He pushes my husband out of the way."
Graham also showed the audience an old picture of Margot reading the fifth book in the series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, while drinking a cup of tea.
The Aussie beauty confessed the image had actually been taken on her birthday, and she was wearing glasses despite not needing them, as she lied to her optometrist to get them so she could be "like Harry".
Margot and Tom met on the set of Suite Francaise in 2013, though they didn't start dating until 2014.
They then got married in December 2016 and have been going strong ever since.
While Tom might have got his start in front of the camera, he now works as a producer and director.
He and Margot worked together again in 2017 on the biopic I, Tonya, in which she portrays shamed figure skater Tonya Harding.
They are also working together on the live-action Barbie movie, with Margot as the iconic Mattel character, and Ryan Gosling playing Ken.
Tom has also worked on Promising Young Woman and Netflix series Maid.
