The Dark Lord has risen and he’s the new leader of the Australian Opposition, according to his fictional ally.

Harry Potter star Jamie Waylett, who played Vincent Crabbe in the film franchise, has filmed a bizarre video saying he was sorry that Peter Dutton was “outed” as the villain Voldemort.

“Hopefully no one else finds out and we can take over and we’ll get stronger day by day,” Mr Waylett said in a video which has since gone viral.

“Your time will come, my Lord. Your time will come. Our time will come.”

The new head of the Liberal Party was forced to deny rumours last week that he was formerly known as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.

It came after Labor MP Tanya Plibersek suggested that he looked like Lord Voldemort.

“I think there will be a lot of children who have watched a lot of Harry Potter films who will be very frightened of what they are seeing on TV at night,” she told Brisbane radio station 4BC.

“I am saying he looks a bit like Voldemort.”

Mr Dutton later revealed that he is “not bald by choice”, telling Sydney’s 2GB that he was diagnosed with a skin condition a couple of years ago.

“Which is just a reality of getting older as well,” he said.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese responded to Ms Plibersek’s remark, saying it is “unacceptable" and Ms Plibersek apologised to Mr Dutton for the comment.

In the 40 second clip, posted on the Aussie political satire Instagram account, friendlyjordies, the henchman for Harry Potter’s arch nemesis, Draco Malfoy, first stopped to check that he was alone.

“Hey Dutton, Crabbe here,” Mr Waylett says to the camera before pointing to the Dark Mark on his left arm, a snake tattoo and symbol of Lord Voldemort’s followers, the Death Eaters.

“I’m sorry Tanya outed you as Voldemort.

“The rest of the Slytherins reached out and they told me. So as soon as I heard, I thought, I have to get in contact with you and make this possible, and just sort this out, because no one can know our secret.

“I mean, no one can know that you’re still about.

“As far as everyone is concerned, you know, you’re gone, but we know the truth, so our time will come, your time will come, my Lord.”

It’s believed the words may have been part of a suggested script provided to a website called Cameo, where people can pay celebrities to record a personalised message for them.

Mr Waylett’s Cameo profile offers a personalised video shoutout for $97.

The actor played the thug Crabbe in six of the eight Harry Potter films before he was caught for drug possession and later imprisoned for two years for his participation in the 2011 London riots.
