As he watched the first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Tom revealed his grandfather had played a Hogwarts professor watching a quidditch match.
As he clocked his relative on-screen, Tom said: “That’s my grandpa again! The guy with the beard.
“White beard! Huge beard right next to Lee Jordan. And there’s me again. It’s a family thing, mental! Mental!”
As he continued to watch, another scene saw his grandfather sat next to Dumbledore (Richard Harris) in the Great Hall as they were informed of a troll in the school dungeon.

Tom said: “There’s my gramps! Oh my days it actually goes [over him]. There goes my gramps and then there’s me.”
Tom has delighted Harry Potter fans in recent months as they struggle with lockdown and Covid-19 restrictions by hosting a number of events online.
Back in November, he hosted an epic 19-year reunion with Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.
There was also James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy, Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) and Alfred Enoch (Dean Thomas).

Daniel – who played Harry – dropped a big hint the celebrations would only increase as it reached the 20th anniversary of the first film.
He said: “My first thoughts are that this is but a mere preview of the nostalgia we’ll be immersed in next year when it hits 20 years since the first film was released.
“I feel like we’ll be doing a lot of reminiscing probably in various forms next year.”
The star added: “It feels insane that that much time has gone by […] It seems impossible that all that time has passed.”
