Remember this kid from Harry Potter? He grew up and wasted his fortune on booze, women and cars

An actor who made his fortune in his early teens, thanks to his role in the Harry Potter franchise, spent all his money on girls, cars, and alcohol. And that's according to his mother.

Devon Murray, 27, who played Seamus Finnigan in all of the Harry Potter films, is now being sued by his former agent for a SGD$582,596 (USD$433,244) in commission fees.

But his mother Fidelma reportedly told the Irish High Court her son had ‘gone drinking, took out girls and bought cars’ with his entire savings.

Although he does not seem to have any regrets about it, reports UniLad.

While the court case was still going on, he tweeted this: DRINKS! GIRLS! CARS!

His mum added that Devon’s agent, Mr Brooks, was fired because she saw a picture of her son, who was then 13-years-old, smoking a cigarette on set.

The agent retorted that she should have been in control of her son.

The agent also added that it was he who secured Devon’s job in the Harry Potter series.

This earned him SGD$360,387 (USD$268,000) from the first four films alone.

Devon eventually lost the court case.
