Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) has a new interview with MTV where he discusses both how he sees the character of Draco Malfoy overall, and how his character will be playing out in "Deathly Hallows":

"From my character's point of view, a lot has been left to interpretation," Felton said, pinpointing an important-yet-subtle moment from the final film, in which Draco is tasked with the painful decision of whether to help or hinder his nemesis' progress. "[There is] one take where you want to help Harry. The books, I think, kind of left it up to the interpretation of the reader, really, so one way you internally want to help him, the other side where you're just confused, so I'm intrigued to see which bits David [Yates] cuts out of it."
The rest of the article details Felton's opinion of Draco Malfoy's character, including how J. K. Rowling described him as "vulnerable." You can read more here and see the latest trailer for both parts of "Deathly Hallows" in our Video Galleries.

Yeah I love how the actors take their character and, the movies in general, so seriously. They are as big HP fans as we are lol. It will be interesting to see what version of Draco they cut for the movie but, I hope they dont make him out to be something that he’s not. He’s a slimy thug of a bully. If things hadnt gone bad for LV and the DEs, if life had gone on the way it had previously, I doubt very much that Draco would have decided to turn himself into a Mister Nice Guy, in my opinion he would have grown up to be very much like Lucius.

omg i think he’s got a great point about draco…personally i only saw him as a pureblood git until the 6th book/movie, that’s when you could really see the vulnerable side of draco come out…btw i watched the video on MTV…sorry, tom, but you look better with blonde hair. all there is to it. :)

I’ve always thought of Draco as just misguided by his parents and people who he looks up to.I think Tom Felton did such a great job of pratraying Draco in the HBP

Good article. I see what Tom means when Draco and Harry are two sides of the same coin. I definitely new Draco was vulnerable and I don’t doubt that his parents are bad role models. “He damn if does and he’s damn is doesn’t”

Tom is such a great actor. It is a shame that some of the littler fans are so afraid of him when they meet him for the first time. He had a little of that problem at the opening of WWoHP. He’s right about Draco though- damned either way.

It’s so true! Draco is going through such a hard time at the moment, and Tom portrays him phenomenally!!!

I think he should help. But whatever David Yates does I am sure will be awesome!
