Tom Felton made his film debut as the evil school rival Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies twenty years ago. Tom Felton has had a busy career since the last time we saw him handle a wand more than ten years ago, but that doesn’t mean the crafty Pureblood wizard has left his heart. The British actor explains why he enjoys responding to inquiries about Harry Potter.
When the same questions regarding their breakout roles are repeatedly asked of actors, it can often feel like a nightmare, like in the case of Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint who has previously attempted to distance himself from Ron Weasley. Tom Felton, fortunately for us, is not one of those people. He started to 1883 Magazine that he is unable and unwilling to stop responding to inquiries about Harry Potter.
Yes, without a doubt. I understand why people would choose to respond to different queries. The Potter fandom is not going out anytime soon, and I think that’s terrific. It inspired an entire generation to read, be creative, and have a vivid imagination when I was 14. That has been handed down to this current generation and has not been halted. Some generously travelled from the Philippines to help me during my most recent run. That is why I make it the point to perform at the stage door nearly every night.
It seems logical that Felton is proud to be a part of the Harry Potter series, given that it is one of the most successful books and film franchises ever. He must still remember his first scene from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone like it was yesterday. It seems he is destined to portray Draco Malfoy since director Chris Columbus mistakenly thought he had the ideal choice to play the clever Slytherin in a bungled audition in which he appeared to know what to be enthused about for Harry Potter. Demonstrates that occasionally being a “snotty youngster” at an audition can be advantageous.
The 34-year-old welcomes Harry Potter followers who share his enthusiasm for the famous film series.
I want to meet all these young people who, for lack of a better term, are united by their love of Potter and come from all different backgrounds and areas of life. I wholeheartedly support their ardour and affection for Potter. Occasionally, I’d prefer not to be asked to do a video or anything else while I’m eating dinner with my mother.
We now know not to bother the Rise of the Planet of the Apes star with video requests when he eats supper with his mother. Despite the rise of social media, which wasn’t around when the movies were made. The lifelong Slytherin’s reputation as a result of Harry Potter has never been a hardship to him. Being noticed everywhere you go is undoubtedly not the most delicate part of your day. But happily, for the English actor, it hasn’t hurt him.
Tom Felton is still happy with the favourable response of the Harry Potter fanbase, despite the persistent questions from obnoxious fans at somewhat inconvenient times. But aside from that, I appreciate Potter’s message of optimism.
