Being a successful movie actor isn't always the dream life it appears to be.
As Harry Potter star Tom Felton discovered on his winter break in Miami, Florida this week.
The 22-year-old, who plays villainous Draco Malfoy, is currently taking a break in warmer climes, but unfortunately he is not allowed to soak up too much of the sun in the Sunshine State.
Blond-haired Tom revealed that he will resume filming on the latest film instalment of the hugely popular film series next week and, as a result, must avoid getting a tan.
The actor wrote on his Twitter page: 'Enjoying Miami, relaxing and enjoying the contrasting weather from London!! Still wearing factor 50, as Draco can't come back with a tan!!'
He later added: 'Filming on the 4th so keeping my skin as white as can be!'
But he risked ruining his vow when he stripped off his T-shirt to go topless while on the beach with his girlfriend of two years, Jade Olivia.
The couple headed over to Miami earlier this week and have inseparable since they landed, spending quality time together sunbathing and taking romantic strolls along the beach.
Tom will return as Draco in the latest instalment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, next year.
The film is to be released in two parts, the first of which will hit screens in November 2010 - followed by part two, currently scheduled for July 2011.
Felton recently revealed that he in unsure whether he will be appearing in the film's much-anticipated epilogue, which will show how the lead characters look 19 years into the future.
He told MTV: 'We haven't shot that yet, and I still haven't had the confirmation whether I'm doing it or we're going to get someone else to do it.'
But he added that he was looking forward to seeing what he will look like 19 years in the future, saying: 'It'd be kind of freaky to see what they come up with.'
