The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly has published a short series on all the Harry Potter villains, and you guessed it, Tom’s Draco Malfoy was part of the list. In the short interview, Tom discusses Draco’s regrets, and being surrounded by some of the nicest villains out there – Jason Issacs, Alan Rickman, and Ralph Fiennes.
The son of a (now-disgraced) disciple of Voldemort, Draco has been raised from birth to loathe HArry and everything he stands for. From the day they met in The Sorcerer’s Stone, Draco tried to make Harry’s life miserable. But things changed after Draco allowed Bellatrix and her fellow Death Eaters to attack his school in The Half-Blood Prince. “He’s an exile,” says Felton, “no longer welcome at Hogwarts.”
Regrets, he has a few: In The Deathly Hallows-Part 1, Harry breaks into Malfoy Manor, which has been taken over by Voldemort. “When [Draco] sees Harry again,a fter being surrounded by all that evil,” says Felton, “he realizes he’s actually been fighting on the wrong side. But of course his hands are tied.”
It takes a coven: Growing up on a movie set could have been tricky. But Felton says “the villains have really been taking ultimate care of me. Jason [Isaacs] has been very paternal, and Alan [Rickman] and Ralph [Fiennes] have been very kind with their time.”
