Felton Interviews

In a follow up to our MTV Movie Awards nominations story below, actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) has made comments about his nomination, working Harry Potter costar Helena Bonhamn Carter, and of a scene cut from the "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" film. On the subject of his nomination for Best Villain, Mr. Felton is quoted as saying:

"It's a massive honor," he said. "Especially given that it's a fan vote. That makes it quite touching. And it's classic for me, because for almost a decade, kids have been running onto set and hugging Daniel [Radcliffe] and shaking Emma [Watson]'s hand. I try and be as polite as I can, and I never seem to get anywhere with them. Finally, I'm in a category that celebrates that fact!"  
The young actor went on to speak of working with actress Helena Bonham Carter, who portrays the character of Bellatrix in the Harry Potter films, saying that she is his "idol."  He goes on to say: "I've learned more off her than anyone else." 

Lastly, Mr. Felton made comments about a scene which was cut from the "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" film, right before filming was set to take place.  Quoteage:
"In the fourth film, I got turned into a ferret," he said. "In the original script, it says that in the transition back from ferret to human, I was going to be naked, and I was going to have to run through the courtyard with about 60 extras and 50 film crew and run out with my cheeks on show. For some reason, they pulled that at the last minute. I don't know why. Maybe they thought it was too explicit for young viewers. Maybe something about not having a wide-angle lens!"

I can almost hear the millions of fans crying that they didn’t get to see him naked in the forth film, he he. He definitely deserved the nomination. He really captured Draco’s mind set and energy in the sixth book perfectly.

I’m glad they cut the “cheeks out” scene — it wouldn’t have been appropriate for the series. (Although, I’m sure it would have been hilarious!!!)

I rather do wish they had retained that original scene from the Goblet of Fire!

The reason he did not transform back naked is because it was not canon. No where does it say any such thing besides it would hurt the ratings.

It was a Firebolt... Its handle glittered as he picked it up. He could feel it vibrating and let go; it hung in midair, unsupported, at exactly the right height for him to mount it. His eyes moved from the golden registration number at the top of the hand
