Tom Felton at Empire Magazine’s 20th Anniversary party.
Tom Felton has spoken of how sad he is to be making the last Harry Potter movie.
The 21-year-old actor plays Harry’s arch enemy Draco Malfoy and the cast are currently filming the final installment in the boy wizard’s adventures, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.
Tom said: “It’s a sad thought and an exciting one at the same time – I think we’re all a little bit anxious about it being the last one but at the same time very excited to see what’s going to come for all of us.”
He added: “I have endless memories. To pick out one is an endless task, but collectively the seven years have been a huge, huge experience for me and a great learning experience and I’ve met some great friends and it’s been too good to be true.”
Tom may play Harry’s nemesis, but he actually auditioned to play Harry originally.
He revealed: “I went for Harry for about five times and then Ron for a couple more and ended up dying my hair blond for Draco. I had my hair dyed brown, ginger and then blond and finally they got it right.
“I know Chris Columbus (director) was very keen I think to use me in the film but didn’t quite know where to place me so to speak, so I am glad he found a place. I don’t know what he saw in me as an 11-year-old, I can’t see how I could be evil, but I am very glad he gave me the part of Draco definitely.”
