    This Harry Potter Doppelgänger Is Going Viral For His Potter-Themed Thirst Traps, And I'm Looking Respectfully

    Welcome to Harry Potter after dark. ⚡️

    If you clicked on this article, you're probably wondering what exactly a Harry Potter thirst trap looks like — and I definitely don't blame you.

    So, without further ado, this is Felix, a 25-year-old French native who, if you haven't noticed, looks almost EXACTLY like Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe.

    He grabbed hold of the internet's attention on Feb. 2, 2021 when he posted the comparison photos above. Now, only two months later, his account has grown to 1.3 million followers who can't get enough of his videos.

    Highlights include this steamy Tok that prompted one user to comment, "Gryffindor in the streets, Slytherin in the sheets":

    This spicy scene in the Hogwarts library:

    This 50 Shades of Potter thirst trap that should honestly come with a warning label:

    This Chosen One silhouette challenge: 

    And this clip that I replayed several times before remembering I had an article to finish writing:

    When speaking to BuzzFeed about his *ehem* content, Felix admitted to being a relatively recent Potterhead. "I got into the Potterverse quite late," he said. "I read the first one at an early age, but then came back to it years later in greater depth. Combine that with confinement, and you end up making TikTok videos cosplaying your look-alike."

    Did you hear that? We have quarantine to thank for thirst trap Harry Potter. Finally, something good has come from this! And, if the comment section is any indication, the internet doesn't mind this version of the popular series:

    When considering which of the many hilarious and sometimes reckless comments posted under his video has been his favorite, Felix said, "'My Huffle Puffed' made me laugh quite a lot."

    But every comment is more than appreciated. "This whole TikTok experience is amazing," Felix said. "I've only been on it for just over two months now...this is crazy, and still hard to realize. The love I get from people all around the world, enjoying my videos, is truly heartwarming and I'm forever greatful for it."

    While you're waiting for an OnlyWands app to launch, you can keep up with Felix on TikTok and Instagram.
