The pair discussed the film, rumors, crazy fans and J. Rowling, among other things. You can read excerpts below, or the entire interview here on Scholastic's blog. Tom, after this, would you like to switch it up from being the evil one to being the hero? I'd like to do anything that contrasts this as much as possible really. Anything that doesn't involve blond hair would also be a plus. What's the most amusing thing you've read [in the media] about yourselves?
I was in Twilight last week. And I'm doing a Burberry campaign next week. So both of those things are untrue as far as I know. Bonnie, what about you and James Phelps? And I'm good friends with his girlfriend anyway. Tom, have you ever experienced in real life that people think you are kind of evil like your character?
There have been a few people that have not seen the difference between reality and the film. I had a gentleman, luckily I never met the guy, but he legally changed his name to Lucius Malfoy and wanted to adopt me. He sent me the adoption forms and wanted to change my name to Draco and we could all live [together]! Thankfully my mother declined his offer and I'm still at home. In Harry Potter 6 everyone's in love except Draco. Can you believe it! I didn't even realize all this stuff was going on because I was doing the whole evil walk down the corridor thing and when we saw the film everyone sort of.
I like to think Draco had offers but he was too busy with his evil task at hand. Or they weren't good enough. Very high standards for Draco. I can't imagine why any female on the planet would want to spend the day with him. How would you describe J.
I always find it so surreal meeting her. This whole world literally is because of one person. 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. Do you both have all the Harry Potter movies at home? Do you watch them from time to time? Yeah, we're always given lots and lots of copies every time they come out. Yeah, plenty of DVDs. They play it on TV so much, I swear. It's just kind of weird looking back at yourself when you were [high voice] speaking like this [normal voice] and then you were that tall.
We should have a little movie marathon. Maybe in like twenty years or something. I've never actually sat down and properly watched them from start to finish. It might be kind of cool one day. The Half-Blood Prince can be ordered via the following links:
