Felton:”I’ve Been Sent Spoon Fanmail”

Felton: 'I've been sent spoon fanmail'

Rex Features

Tom Felton has revealed that he was once sent silver spoons as a present from a Harry Potter fanatic.

The 21-year-old, who plays Draco Malfoy in the movies, said he regularly receives unusual gifts in the post from people who love the wizard films.

“I have some amazing pieces,” he told DS. “I get artwork, which is great. I get shoes, sweets.

“Someone sent me a cake for my birthday. I’ve had spoons – a silver spoon is supposed to symbolise good luck I think, so I’m very grateful for my spoon collection.

“There are some very strange and bizarre products.”

Commenting on the followers of J.K. Rowling’s series, he added: “There are some heavily convinced American teenagers that take it way too seriously, but saying that, it’s a joy and amazing to see the fans every year.

“It’s one of the franchises of our generation and it’s an honour to be part of it.”

  1. Awwww spoons. Reminds me of my mum’s spoon collection. What to do with all those spoons? I had to laugh at those American teens who take hp way too seriously – no offence to any Americans out there – I mean its not just them 🙂

  2. haha, lol 😆
    Hmmm…what does he mean when he says “There are some heavily convinced American teenagers that take it way too seriously..”?
    Gotta Love Tom 🙂

    • I remember in one interview a couple of years ago he said some evangelicals would send him Bibles with messages like, “Repent, Brother Tom, for the devil is within.” I presume he’s talking about that.

    • Haha, when the Potter movies first came out I was a…3rd form I believe? I was a Slytherin fan from the beginning (mainly because I had a vendetta against Harry) and when I saw Tom as Draco I was literally convinced that Slytherin was superior because they had the better looking boys… 😀

  3. oh my God… i saw spoon and thought something so wrong. *shakes* but anyways! interesting gifts. i like the cake idea though. but i’d most likely send pictures and any other kind of artsy things.

  4. I’m sending him some fanmail, and I’m including a little plastic dragon inside. LOL I hope he responds- it’s too bad he doesn’t respond personally, but that would be really tough, the poor guy. Anyways, he is totally hot, and I love that pic up there with him and the dog. His girlfriend doesn’t know how lucky she is!!!!!!!
