The 23-year-old actor admitted that viewers and fans should feel a bit sorry for him by the final film. Tom shared, “He’s a character who’s very defined. He was purposefully written by Jo Rowling as very one-dimensional in the first few books, because you’re supposed to hate him. You’re supposed to build up as much dislike for the character as you can until we get to Book 6. We hate him even more for the first half of that book because we think he’s up to something and we know he’s going to do some damage.”
He continued, “But it’s not until we actually see why he’s in that position and see him break down on two or three occasions that we actually start to feel a bit sorry for him. This guy’s a horrible victim of circumstances and terrible parenting.”
Tom added, “He’s a boy amongst men in a world that he does not want to be in. Every minute he stays there, he knows he’s not cut from the same cloth as those people.”
