During an interview with MTV, Tom Felton extols the virtues of the various Harry Potter franchise directors. Chris Columbus, he says, was perfect when they were young children, to help them get started. And he describes Alfonso Cuarón was very artistic and fun. But Tom names current director David Yates as his favorite Harry Potter director.
“David Yates, who we’ve been working with for the last few years, he’s been by far my personal favorite,” Felton told MTV News. “I get on with him like a house on fire. I think he’s a genius at what he does.”
That’s not to say the British actor doesn’t have fond memories of earlier directors. Felton praised both Chris Columbus, who helmed the first two flicks, and “Prisoner of Azkaban” director Alfonso Cuarón.
“Chris Columbus was a fantastically fun guy to work with, especially with kids because we didn’t know what we were doing and he was a brilliant person to try to get us into it and for it to remain fun, which is essential,” Felton said.
He added, “Alfonso obviously had a very artistic view of it and a lot of fun with him.”
