Harry Potter fans were in for a shock this week, when it was revealed that a fan favourite has made quite a dramatic transformation. Josh Herdman – who played Draco Malfoy’s sidekick Goyle in a all eight Potter films – has moved on from casting spells to throwing punches as a professional MMA fighter.
The former actor made his amateur debut last weekend, beating Polish opponent, Janusz Walachowski, at the City Pavillion in London. The child star later spoke of his new career and what he loves about it most.
“I’ve been training traditional Japanese jujitsu for nearly five years and hold a shodan black belt,” he told The Mirror.
