On Sunday night (June 6) at the MTV Movie Awards, “Harry Potter” star Tom Felton beat out some tough competition to win Best Villain for his portrayal of Draco Malfoy. And, moments after winning and having a memorable moment with “Other Guys” co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, Felton admitted he couldn’t believe he came out on top.
“Very exciting! The most surreal moment of my life,” he told MTV News. “I had Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell hanging above my head on a wire. So, yeah, I can’t know what to make of that.”
Did he think he deserved to win? “I would definitely say no! Against Christoph Waltz and Helena Bonham Carter? Not really fair competition. I thought I was well out of the works. Thanks to the fans for voting. I really appreciate it.”
Then, out of nowhere, came Wahlberg, who told the “Harry Potter” star he did a great job. And the encounter left Felton quite star-struck. “You’ve got that on camera, yeah? Evidence we’re tight now!” he joked. “We’re thinking about [a rap album]. We got some TV shows we’re thinking about. He wants me to be on ‘Entourage.’ I said I’m not too sure about it. We’re tight. [Laughs.] I can’t believe it. Amazing!”
Earlier in the night, Felton dished to MTV News on the Movie Awards red carpet that his real-life lady love, “Potter” stunt assistant Jade Olivia, would have a cameo in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” “This is an exclusive for you — she is, yes,” Felton said. “The producers came to me about six months ago, and I said, ‘OK, I’ll ask her.’ She was at first reluctant, but I pulled her arm and twisted it. She was filming with me for three days at King’s Cross [railway station in the U.K.]; we were very excited.”
