Harry Potter star Devon Murray has been ordered to pay €260,000 in commission fees to his former agent.

The High Court heard that the Irish actor made more than €1m for his work in the blockbluster franchise and is said to have spent it all on drinks, cars and girls.

“It wasn’t all women, cars and drink,” Devon said.

According to Independent.ie, the actor said he was ”gutted but there’s not a lot we can do now” after the ruling.

Devon’s former agent Neil Brooks sued the star and his parents Michael and Fidelma after they reportedly did not make the payments that he was owed.

The 27-year-old said he was a ”completely naive child” when he entered the agreement with Neil but he pointed out he would not trade his involvement in the film series for anything.

Mr Justice Michael Moriarty made the award against Devon and his parents.

The judge pointed out that he was sorry things didn’t work out for the actor who made “a million or more which went on proceeds which were not very helpful”.

The actor also said that he had found it very difficult to get work since the Harry Potter series ended and believes it could be down to the dispute with his former agent.

Devon’s mother Fidelma reportedly said she was disappointed with the judge’s decision and was unsure how they would pay the money to Neil Murray.

Mrs. Murray also said she didn’t want to give out to her son for spending all of his money because he was her only child.

His parents said they became concerned when payment cheques were being sent all over the world through their agent before reaching them and that was one of the reasons they ended the agreement.
