Harry Potter alums to star in YouTube’s Origin


YouTube is moving onto original content. Origin is one of the latest and set to star Harry Potter’s Natalia Tena and Tom Felton.

If you’re interested in what the Harry Potter actors are up to now, you’ll want to keep an eye on YouTube. The video-sharing service has moved into original TV content through YouTube Red. Origin is the newest one announced and will star Harry Potter alums, Natalia Tena and Tom Felton.

You’ll know them best as Tonks and Draco, but they’ll play Lana and Logan in the series. Ordered for 10 episodes so far, the series tells the story of strangers who are stranded on a spacecraft. To make it worse, they’re on their way to a distant planet and need to work together if they want to survive. Of course, at least one of the strangers isn’t who they claim to be.
