Tom Felton and Ashley Greene are not sure: Who would win – Harry or Edward ?

Today, MTV.com published an article in which Tom Felton and Ashley Greene compare ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Twilight’ notes.

‘We would debate who would actually win out of Edward Cullen and Harry Potter,’ jokes Felton, who co-stars with Greene in ‘The Apparition.’

It goes without saying that the fan communities surrounding “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” are sizable. Ginormous, even. And while many Twilighters are also Potter-heads, when asked to choose a side in the always-loaded debate of “Who would win in a fight: vampires or wizards?” the conversation can get heated, to say the least.

Luckily for fans of both franchises, they’ll have something to cheer about and support together when “The Apparition” is released later this year. The film stars not one, but two fan favorites: “Twilight” star Ashley Greene and “Potter” alum Tom Felton.

Coincidentally, both actors made MTV News’ 11 for ’11 stars-to-watch list, and when we caught up with them recently, we asked if the co-stars talked about “Twilight” vs. “Potter” fans or compared notes about being in highly popular film franchises.

“Not so much comparing the fans as acknowledging how incredible they are,” Greene said. “We are both so lucky to be a part of franchises that have ignited such a passion in young people. Very few actors get to be a part of that experience, so it’s humbling.”

A very sweet and sincere response from Greene, which was appreciated. But Felton gave us more of the playful angle we hoped for.

“Oh yeah, we had lengthy debates,” Felton said of his and Greene’s “Potter” vs. “Twilight” chats. “We actually spent most evenings, instead of rehearsing lines we would debate who would actually win out of Edward Cullen and Harry Potter. It’s still ongoing. We haven’t settled it,” he joked.

“No, I jest,” he admitted. “We’re both very proud of our work for our franchises, so to speak, and it was nice to be the first film that really collaborates them together. It’s a very cool thing to be a part of.”

  1. Obviously Harry would win.
    Harry Potter beat Voldemort
    Voldemort beat Cedric Diggory
    Cedric is Edward Cullen
    THEREFORE
    Harry Potter would beat Edward Cullen.

    It’s simple.

    • I am a fan of both series, and I think they’re too different to really compare and choose one versus the other, BUT I really liked this argument here. Well played 🙂

  2. It’s so nice reading such a sweet exchange, between stars of two different franchises, and seeing them getting along very well, rather than going into useless, pointless arguments. Very clever and more mature. It’s all to their credit. BRAVO!

    With Love,

    • ITA. This debate is soooo lame, and old by now. I really thought we were over that.
      Good for those two bringing on a friendly vibe. I can’t wait to see them together onscreen!

  3. I think is ridiculous this fight between Twilight and Harry Potter, because these films are wonderful and the actors too.I won´t choose between them, I will choose they both. I love the love story between Edward and Bella and also the magic of Harry Potter.

    • I have to disagree. The Twilight films are far from wonderful. I’ve never read the books so I can give an honest opinion there. I hadn’t read the Harry Potter books when I saw the first three movies and yet I loved them. That’s telling enough for me.

      Perhaps the Twilight books are better than the films, idk… whatever, its all fun for the fandoms to argue over =P
