OK! has contacted Tom’s representatives for comment.

On Wednesday, the Potter star celebrated his 34th birthday and posted a selfie on Instagram.

Tom captioned the post: "33 years done – good lord it’s been so much fun getting here – yet, somehow, I still feel the best is yet to come – thank you all for your love , support & sense of humour – let’s keep a good thing going – to the next 33 xx."

The star made his acting debut in the 1997 feature The Borrowers, before becoming a household name in 2001 after appearing in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone at 14 years old.

As the Covid-19 pandemic pushed countries to lockdown, a virtual Harry Potter cast reunion was organised by Tom in 2020.

Tom hosted the virtual reunion with his former co-stars as they discussed their time together on set and what they’ve been up to since.

Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, said of his possible plans for a 2021 celebration for the franchise: "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."
