Plenty More Malfoy: Moviefone interviews Tom Felton

In an article titled 15 Things to Know About ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ conducted by Moviefone, number three was dedicated to the character of Draco Malfoy.

Tom Felton and Moviefone had this to say about HBP having “Plenty More Malfoy”:

3. Plenty More Malfoy
One character who gets a much more developed role in ‘Half-Blood Prince’ is Harry’s Hogwarts rival, Draco Malfoy, who in this film receives direct orders from Lord Voldemort. Bad for Harry, good for Tom Felton, the actor behind Malfoy. “It’s really nice to take him to a higher level, rather than just being an annoying git at the back of the classroom,” Felton says. “It’s really nice that he’s grown, he was quite a two-dimensional character in the previous films.” He’s also got a girlfriend in this installment, Pansy Parkinson (Scarlett Byrne). Felton’s favorite scene this go-around? “To be able to stand on [Harry’s] nose has been a lifelong dream.”

The interview also included a fun fact about actor Jim Broadbent, who plays the new Potions master Horace Slughorn.

Fun fact: Broadbent played Tom Felton’s father in the young actor’s first film, ‘The Borrowers.’

  1. Oh, I HAVE to go watch Borrowers again!!!

    And am I wrong, or was Broadbent in Hot Fuzz with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and such? I seem to remember him… He’s so funny.

    But omg, yayz for Tom. I CANNOT wait for this movie!!!

  2. We do not have this film in Brazil.
    Shame on my country ._.

    But I’ve been waiting for the HBP film since I read the book, because of Draco’s parts *.*


  3. What goes around, comes around, as we say! πŸ˜† Horace Slughorn and Draco Malfoy already met earlier on in life, to meet again years later into the Harry Potter series. This is called synchronizity. Nothing happens by hazard. πŸ˜‰

    He’s also got a girlfriend in this installment, Pansy Parkinson (Scarlett Byrne).

    I knew that I was right on this one! :mrgreen:

    With Love,


  4. Omg, I just realized that Tom Felton was in that movie I watched like a year ago. “The Borrowers” I’m tempted to watch it again just cause he’s in it!
