Tom Felton Really Isn't Like Draco -- At All.

Tom Felton Really Isn't Like Draco -- At All.

JJJ knows that Tom Felton isn’t anything like Draco Malfoy and most of his fans know too.

The 23-year-old actor dished again to the Daily Mail that he’s not the character who shot him into a household name, his friendship with Daniel Radcliffe, and going back to auditions. Check it:

Opposites Attract? “I’m stunned when people ask if I’m like Draco. Jo (Rowling) wrote Draco as a one-dimensional bully, a slimy individual, to get the audience hating him. Rupert (Grint) and Ron, I can see the similarity. Emma (Watson) and Hermione, certainly. Even Daniel and Harry. But for crying out loud, I’m definitely not like Draco.

There was an Age Gap: “I was 13, and he was 11. At that stage of your life that’s dramatic. Bonding with the rest of the cast was complicated, to be honest with you. We were complete unknowns, and we were thrown together. It’s not likely that you’ll all suddenly click and become one happy family. Daniel and I knew we loved The Simpsons, but we never really sat down and talked. Partly because there was a proper age gap.”

Auditioning 101: “I’m much more nervous in auditions now than I was at 11. You take a lot of hits before you get something good. The first few were heartbreaking. I thought, ‘I can’t do this.’ They are cut-throat in America. Before you’ve even started, someone’s playing on the BlackBerry. You’re reading your lines, physically convulsing, and they just say ‘Thank you’. That means ‘Get lost’. I did 19 auditions and got the 20th, for the film The Apparition.”

    He took a one-dimensional bully and turned him into a character that stole every scene he was in. He brought more heart and dimension to Draco than what was ever in the books. In short – Tom made Draco come alive. I pity the movies that pass him up, they definitely don’t know what they are missing.
