Excerpts From BL’s Interview With Tom Felton Who Plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter Movies

Tom Felton first earned the ire of film fans in 2001 when he strolled onto the big screen as Harry Potter-nemesis Draco Malfoy. Eight years and seven films later, the Potter franchise wouldn’t be the same without Harry’s bleached-blond foil.

Boys’ Life spoke to Felton about life playing the bad guy. Read about it in the July 2009 issue of BL, and listen to exclusive excerpts by clicking on the audio players below:

    i think draco can be a real snob in the books, but when i get to know him (read about him in the boys life and heard the inter-view) he`s actually not that bad a guy. (Tom if you are reading this tell Emma she is hot.)

Good Job Guys!

  43. Yeah he has been a real git. But over all he’s been a great actor as Draco Malfoy all malicious and sneers so many times.

    I loved the interview. It was amazing and it has been submitted to two Harry Potter Fansites, The Leaky Cauldron and Mugglenet.

  45. I love Malfoy. Can’t wait to see it!

    Draco is a funny actor with crabbe and goyle because they are both dumb

  47. reader anoynomous // June 23, 2009 at 6:31 am // Reply

    I like drako(tom)because he is soooooooooooooooooooooooo annoying and a git as ron would say. I also like how he keeps his life a secret and disarms dumbledore.

    Draco rocks he is awesome I have read all of the books

  49. I love the way Tom Felton has performed Draco Malfoy. He has been a real “git” the whole way through, but I am sure he will play the conflicted Draco very well in Half Blood Prince. I am looking forward to seeing it!

  50. i like it guys.
