Harry Potter star Tom Felton is going through a tough time.

Well, not Tom exactly, but the troubled character he plays in the music video for James Arthurs new single Empty Space.

James, 30, debuted the stunning visuals for his new single on Friday and, frankly, the video has turned out to be just as heartbreaking as the song.

Directed by Andzej Gavriss, the clip sees Tom, 31, playing a heartbroken ex-boyfriend reminiscing over a past relationship by watching home videos of happier times.

However, the downward spiral begins and Tom – or his on-screen alter-ego at least – descends into an unhealthy lifestyle of drinking, trashing his apartment and stumbling through the streets alone at night.

Simply put, hes not looking his best.

It all ends with a car crash so theres no happy ending with this tale sadly.

After premiering his pride and joy, James told his Instagram followers: So here it is… This is one of the proudest moments of my career so far. An incredibly moving performance in the motion picture for the #EmptySpaceVideo @vevo Special thanks to @t22felton and @andzejgavriss.

The former X Factor winner previously said of the track: This song is for anyone who has ever deeply loved and lost someone dear to them, and is then faced with the struggle of trying to fill that void. It is about coming to terms with the fact that only that special person can truly fill the empty space.

Lyrics include: Ive been drinking, Ive been doing things I shouldnt do / Over thinking, I dont know who I am without you.
