Tom Felton Attends DragonCon in Altanta, GeorgiaFelton
As announced via the actor's official Twitter account, Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) will be making an appearance at the 2009 DragonCon sci-fi, fantasy, gaming, and comic convention taking place in Atlanta, Georgia this weekend. A report is now online featuring a short rundown of the actor's activities this weekend, as well as a few quotes from a Q&A Mr. Felton participated in during the convention. Relating his feelings of closeness with the Potter costars Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Mr. Felton goes on speak of his character and what may cause Draco to fall towards evil. The report says:
Although Draco Malfoy is considered to be a villain, Felton sees Draco and Harry as two sides of a coin. Harry has good influences around him, but Draco has the worst—his father, Lucius, and Bellatrix, for example. "I think there's some good down inside [Draco] somewhere. A lot ... is left unwritten—where Draco stands [at the end] in all the madness." One drawback to his role is the effect he has on children who visit the set. They're happy to meet Radcliff[e], Grimes [sic], and Watson, but Felton "scare[s] the daylights out of children. They hide behind their parents' legs. It’s a nightmare, but it also means I'm doing something right."Feltbeats also has extensive coverage of Mr. Felton's visit to the convention, with post containing video from the actor's appearance. Video featuring the Q&A session can be viewed via this link.
