British actor Tom Felton, remembered for his narrative of Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, collapsed while playing a celebrity golf event Thursday at the Ryder Cup. Organisers told only that Felton encountered “a medical incident” at Whistling Straits and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. They submitted no other information.
Felton was on the 18th hole when he fell. He was helped to his feet, seated on a stretcher and driven away in a golf cart. He turned 34 on Wednesday.
Felton was playing for Europe in the celebrity match, which is planned the day before the US and Europe begin the Ryder Cup. He has occurred in several movies, most notably eight movies in the Harry Potter series. Tom Felton was last seen in the Dutch World War II movie The Forgotten Battle, which was released in theatres in June.
It will have a Netflix release as well in October. The actor will be next seen in the British drama Save the Cinema, which is said to be established on the true tale of Liz Evans, a hairdresser and leader of a youth theatre in Carmarthen, Wales, who started a campaign in 1993 to save the Lyric theatre from closure.
Besides Felton, the movie also features Jonathan Pryce, Samantha Morton, Adeel Akhtar and Susan Wokoma.
