Tom Felton walked the red carpet for the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II that took place in Trafalgar Square on Thursday, July 7th.
The 23 year-old actor who has played the villainous Draco Malfoy for all 8 films says he and his costars weren’t chosen because they were fantastic actors but rather as kids who’s looks fit the character descriptions in the J.K. Rowling series of books.
“Let’s be honest: we weren’t picked for Harry Potter for our acting ability – it was because we looked like the characters as they’d been written,” Felton said.
“We started out as rank amateurs, and we’ll be lucky if we’ve learnt something over the past ten years. It’s a question of what we do with that now, where we go from here.”
Felton is doing well for himself at the moment. He has filmed The Apparition with Ashley Greene due in 2012 but at the end of this month, he’s attending another big premiere.
The actor is costarring with James Franco and Frieda Pinto in the August 5th release of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Harry Potter star Emma Watson is the cover girl of the forthcoming August 2011 issue of Seventeen Magazine (check photo shoot + behind the scenes video below). Emma is a super cute artsy girl who is just trying to figure out what path she wants to take after the end of her Harry Potter experience.
The 21 year-old actress finally confessed she had a huge crush on her co-star Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter franchise. Really? Draco was Emma’s first crush? What about Harry? Bad boys are more fun!
Here are some highlights from Emma Watson’s Seventeen interview:
On celebrity crushes: “I’ve never understood having crushes on people who you don’t know in real life. I only crush on people I meet. I mean, I can appreciate that someone is good-looking, obviously, but I don’t intend to fantasize about people I don’t know!”
On Draco Malfoy: “For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton. He was my first crush. He totally knows. We talked about it – we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that’s cool.”
On art: “If I hadn’t done Harry Potter, I would have gone and done years of art. I really do love it, and I’d love to write.”
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2“, the eighth and final installment of the “Harry Potter” series, hits theaters on July 15, 2011.

Tom Felton came out to the New York City premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 at Alice Tully Hall on Monday (November 15th) night. The actor spoke about his character, Draco Malfoy and his softening in the final films:
What has Draco learned since Half Blood Prince?
He’s learned that he’s not cut out to be the villain that he once thought he was. He’s certainly realized that his father isn’t quite the greatest influence or role model that he once took him for. And I think he realizes that he’s in a really horrible place now, he’s terrified to be where he is. And I think he sympathizes with Harry a little bit and he wishes he could have helped him out earlier on.
What’s it like playing remorseful Draco instead of mean Draco?
It’s cool. It actually really nice, it’s always nice to play something differently or find something new. It’s always nice when a character has a journey or an arc like this. And in these last two films you really see him step out of his father’s shadow and start to think for himself.
Tom will hit the July premiere for the final Hogwarts movie and Felton’s next film, Apparition with Ashley Greene is due September 2011.

Two more Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 movie posters have surfaced. This time Tom Felton’s Draco Malfoy and Dobby the House Elf get the super close up shots. The posters really do convey the sense of tragedy and fear that these last two movies are set to bring about.
I have to say – I am looking forward to the movie, but hope the posters are going to come to and end. It’s only a month more to go before the movie debuts (November 19th.) I know I want behind the scenes interviews with the cast and some more teaser clips. Thankfully at least one new trailer is on the horizon. The new clip is set to be shown at tonight’s Spike TV 2010 Scream Awards. The ceremony takes place tonight in Los Angeles but won’t be shown until Tuesday October 19th. I’ll probably watch it just for that.

Warner Bros released a new trailer for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 earlier this week and WOW! does it look amazing! This trailer gives a fantastic preview of the epic battles we will see on screen in November. The official synopsis:
Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.
Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort…alive.
Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale—the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate he seeks.
Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “the Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
Lots more photos and the new trailer are below.

Tom Felton hit San Diego, California on Saturday’s Comic-Con 2010 to deliver some never-before-seen footage of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. From the report, the films really do take on a different tone – this is the war in the Harry Potter universe – and the action is cranked up to crazy intense levels.
There was one awesome shot that has stuck with me of Hermione (Emma Watson) firing her wand at bad wizards chasing the three of them in the woods, and the aggression in her movements made her fear palpable. The acting in these films looks absolutely phenomenal from what we’ve seen, and the extended look at the tent fight scene between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Ron (Rupert Grint) sent chills down my spine.
Some other peeks: The first images of Rufus Scrimgeour were shown along with Bill and Fleur’s wedding scene and some images of Snape, the Death Eaters and Voldemort urging Harry to give up so he can save everyone.
Hopefully Warner Brothers releases this on the net soon so everyone can get a glimpse. It certainly has everyone talking – bring it on!

As both the Twilight and Harry Potter movie series wrap up in the next couple of years, the actors are working on their longevity in the business, signing on to new roles. Ashley Greene is costarring with Sebastian Stan in Apparition and now Draco Malfoy thespian Tom Felton joins the cast of the supernatural thriller.
“As far as my character goes, obviously he’s not an evil, jealous wizard,” Tom said with a laugh. “He’s a college student, a very intelligent, confident young man who’s really excited about what he’s getting himself into. At the same time, he has no idea what he’s getting himself into. This character has such a wide range in one movie. He starts off as a real go-getter, and as the story goes on, you really see him turn.”
Felton also mentions one big physical change from what we are used to: no blonde hair.
This movie sounds like it has great potential and I’m looking forward to seeing the Twilight and Harry Potter actors in other roles.
