The July issue of SFX magazine has a large Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince feature with interviews from David Yates, Daniel Radcliffe, and a few others including our own Tom Felton. Director of the film Yates had some glowing words to say about Tom.
“They’re all getting better,” he says. “Tom Felton, as Malfoy, will be revelatory in this film. He’s got a real character to play this time -he’s a child assassin, and he’s really struggling with this mission he’s been given, and he’s proud that he’s been asked by Voldemort to take Dumbledore’s life. But at the same time, it’s eating at him from within. So before, because Malfoy’s always been a bit of a 2D villain. Now he’s got a bit more emotional development.”
Below is a cut of the box insert containing a small interview the magazine did with Tom concerning growing up in the HP-verse and his character development.
