Res­i­dent bad boy

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MOVIES -

TOM Fel­ton has a dif­fi­cult time con­vinc­ing peo­ple that he is Draco Mal­foy in the Har­ryPot­ter se­ries. Now that he no longer has blond hair or pale skin, it takes a lit­tle while for fans to re­alise that they are in­deed talk­ing to Fel­ton.

“I kind of miss it (blond hair) in an odd way,” said Fel­ton whose hair is now a few shades darker. But be­ing un­recog­nis­able on the street has its ad­van­tages as well, said the 23-year-old London-born lad, as he is able to roam around town, be it in Amer­ica or Bri­tain, with­out any has­sle.

“I have ab­so­lutely no prob­lem with walk­ing any­where and now, with the brown hair, it takes me to con­vince them that I am the guy who played Mal­foy.”

Noth­ing like the mean, scowl­ing school­boy he por­trays on­screen, the chatty and funny Fel­ton has ac­cepted the fact that he’s the least favourite char­ac­ter in the movie se­ries.

“Kids cry when they see me at the movie set. They are keen to meet young Daniel, Ru­pert and Emma but not so keen to meet me, ap­par­ently. I’ll take that as a com­pli­ment,” said Fel­ton with a smile.
