Tom Felton has been acting since he was eight-years-old. He
stumbled into the entertainment industry at the suggestion of an actress friend of the family who recognised Feltons theatrical
qualities. Felton met with an agent, and two weeks later, after auditioning with over four hundred other children, he landed
an international commercial campaign and went abroad to work.

Meet the Kid Who Plays Draco Malfoy
Fans are wild
about the second "Harry Potter" movie, thanks to a suspenseful story and great characters.
And one of the best parts of
"Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" is watching the developing rivalry between Harry and his Slytherin classmate Draco
Malfoy. That meant a larger role for actor Tom Felton, who has played Draco in the first two movies. "The Chamber of Secrets"
included lots of stunts, including a cool Quidditch chase and a duel with Harry.
We recently had a chance to chat with
Tom. And although he has that wicked Malfoy snarl and curled lip down to perfection, he is a regular guy with a good sense
of humor. "Just tell them deep down I'm a good guy," he said.
Here's what Tom had to say about films, fame and playing
a bad guy.
Q: Filming the "Harry Potter" movies takes up a big chunk of the school year. Are you back at school?
I've been in school (near London) off and on. I'll be in school for three or four months before we start shooting the next
movie in February or March. I like school and I'm glad to be back. People think school's a drag, but you don't realize how
much fun it is until you're not there.
Q: Do you get recognized a lot, especially after the second movie?
A: I do
get the odd remark, but it's not too bad. I have short brown hair, not long blond hair (like in the movie).
Q: Is it
fun playing the bad guy?
A: Oh yeah! Of all the parts ... I wanted to play Malfoy. He's the most different of all of the
Q: If you were really a student at Hogwarts, would the Sorting Hat sort you into Slytherin?
Slytherin, definitely. One hundred percent! In all the other houses, you can't do anything wrong, not that I'd want to, but
Q: And would you be friends with Crabbe and Goyle or some of the other kids?
A: I would in real life. Crabbe
and Goyle are nice people.
Q: Do all of the young actors hang out together on the set? Are you all friends now?
We usually have school, but when we don't, we chill out in the game room. Everyone gets along. It's kind of strange. Everyone
is like a puzzle piece and we all came together and just clicked.
Q: Is it true you haven't read any of the "Harry
A: Well, I didn't read the first book. (Director) Chris Columbus asked me that when I auditioned for the
part and I said "No," but he still gave me the part. I didn't read the second book either. I wanted to play the part as it
was written for the script, not the book. I'm going to read the third book, just to compare.
Q: What are you doing
for the holidays?
A: I'll be home with my family, and my grandma and grandad. For Boxing Day, we're going to Florida. (Boxing
Day is Dec. 26. The British holiday is celebrated with gifts to friends and family.)
Q: What's on your Christmas list?
A CD player.
Q: Do you have any New Year's resolutions?
A: To make the third film the best work I've ever done!
You've signed on for the third "Harry Potter" movie. Do you think you'll play Draco in all seven -- unless of course, something
happens to him in the book?
A: Hopefully, but we're growing up quickly. Daniel (Radcliffe, who plays Harry) will look about
25 by the time we get to the end
