Scholastic.com Interview with Bonnie Wright and Tom Felton

Scholastic.com has a new interview online today with Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy.) In this interview they discuss a variety of topics including  their thoughts on Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, scenes from the books they wish had been filmed and the final Harry Potter novel. Quotes of interest:



Q: Are you both happy about the way your parts got more important in the last book?
Bonnie: Yeah I definitely was happy where J.K. Rowling took the character of Ginny. I think if we were all told at the first film where our characters would end up, I don't think any of us would have imagined. It's just really enjoyable and sort of unnerving at the beginning when you do read the last book.
Tom: Seriously. When that came out I was like, I'm not going to read it. I'm going to wait for the script. I don't want to be reading bits in the book and thinking I can't wait to do that and then find out it's not going to be featured. And that lasted about an hour, and within it being released in a day I read the whole thing!

Q: Is there any particular scene from any of the books that you wish you could have filmed but wasn't filmed?
Tom:
They cut out actually very little. There was a thing in the second film where Jason [Lucius Malfoy] and I did a scene at Borgin and Burkes and it was the first time that it was father and son together. And that answered a lot to me why Draco is like that. Unfortunately it was never featured in the film. It was on the DVD as a deleted scene, so I got to watch it, which was cool. But no, everything else we've shot. Especially on these last two [films]. Everything — when I read the book I thought, “I can't wait to shoot that.” It's all there, so we're very excited

Q: How would you describe J.K. Rowling?
Bonnie: I always find it so surreal meeting her. This whole world literally is because of one person.
Tom: She's a very unassuming down-to-earth lady, the most lovely lady. I was always taken away by how genuine she seemed, and how unaffected by the fact that she's probably the world's biggest author.

“World’s biggest author”? Did Tom just call Jo “fat”?

Good read. It’s nice to know that they won’t be cutting out too much from the books :)

ok…
if i got the chance to sit down with these guys. i would ask them questions that people actually cared about.
this, “do you like your character” is getting so boring.

She asked if Bonnie was dating James Phelps?? Wow, that came out of the blue för me. I never heard anything of that sorts. But I have heard a rumor of her and Tom though strangely enough.
