Anyone who knows the Harry Potter franchise will know that Crabbe and Goyle were Draco Malfoy’s right hand men.
While Draco actor Tom Felton has pursued a career in acting, with credits including Rise of The Planet of the Apes, Belle, A United Kingdom and the upcoming Daisy Ridley starrer Ophelia, you might wonder whatever happened to his cronies?
While Crabbe actor Jamie Waylett, unfortunately went off the deep end – the actor was arrested in 2009 for growing marijuana, leading him to be replaced by another character and actor in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and was found guilty of violent disorder during the London riots a couple of years later – Goyle actor Josh Herdman took a very different path.
Herdman is now a cagefighter and is currently competing in the Rise of Champions MMA promotion. He recently faced Samuel Radley in his second MMA fight, which he went on to win.

The Harry Potter star has since appeared in a few films and TV series but his biggest gig to date has been ITV series Marcella. In the show, he plays a former soldier named Eric who, incidentally, is also into cage-fighting.
