Our Super Megafest Interview with Tom Felton
At what seemed like his millionth convention appearance of the year, Potter alumnus Tom Felton spent his weekend among fans at Super Megafest in Framingham, Massachusetts. Tom signed and took photos with fans for almost the entire weekend, only taking an hour or so break to attend a Q&A.
During the session, Tom was asked a lot of great questions, including a few by MuggleNet!
When asked about his thoughts on Fantastic Beasts, Tom said that he thinks “it’s great that Jo is getting back to it,” and lamented the fact that Draco probably would not have anything to do with the story. We then asked him which of the Potter directors HE would pick to take the helm, and he praised all the directors for their individual strengths but in the end stated that he was “a big fan” of David Yates and that David “knows [the world] like the back of his hand, so fingers crossed they’ll give him another crack at the whip.”
When asked about his OTP (one true pairing) involving Draco, he stated that some of the pairings really frighten him, and although it took him years to figure out, he is a fan of Drapple, which – for those of you who don’t know – is a ship between Draco and the apple he carried around in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Yes, apparently, that is a thing! Watch the entire Q&A here: 1 | 2 | 3
Tom was at ease, funny, and very connected with the fans during the one-hour Q&A session, which continued into our discussion with him immediately following.
In our chat with Tom, we talk about the project he is currently working on, including his jump to television, the late Richard Harris, how it feels to continually play the baddie, what he enjoys about fan conferences, and so much more. You can listen to the full audio below.
Be sure to catch Tom at the Ottawa Pop Expo in just a few weeks! For those unable to attend, MuggleNet will be there to bring you all the wonderful coverage.
