The Harry Potter antagonist Tom Felton owned a chinchilla at the age of nine. The wizard actor was shown to be a harsh, heartless villain in the magical series. But he definitely has a soft spot for his chinchilla ‘Stanley’ or ‘Stan’ for short. Fun fact: some behind-the-scenes from the Harry Potter series feature his beloved chinchilla Stan.
The lifespan of a chinchilla is around 10 years. I can assume that Stan had a comfortable dwelling with Felton. Tom kept Stan hush-hush for years due to legal matters. We only hope he didn’t feed this cute little creature to Voldemort’s Nagini. No, Tom didn’t. He was devastated when Stan passed that he never went back to get a chinchilla, now he owns strictly dogs and cats.
