Despite Pottermania currently focused on the surefire blockbuster that is “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1,” there are plenty of juicy details to be unveiled next July when “Deathly Hallows – Part 2″ is released. So when MTV News caught up with Tom Felton recently over tea, we asked him to tease “Part 2″ — specifically that final climactic battle scene at Hogwarts.
“That was the bit that we were all looking forward to, the huge battle of it all,” Felton said. “But I’ve seen even less of that, so I was told it was going to be [full of] all sorts of creatures that weren’t there on the day [of filming]. But overall … the bits that we did do of the good vs. evil army were just fantastic. I was lucky enough to see some of the playback shots, and it just looked epic, so I’m hugely excited about that as well.”
But does he know how it all ends for his character, Draco Malfoy ?
“I hate to be more cryptic, but it’s harder for me to say, because they actually shot … not different versions, but a way in which it could be played either way, so the last thing I want to do is start second-guessing what [director] David Yates is up to because he knows exactly what he’s doing, so I’m intrigued to see exactly how Draco sort of … how he exits the whole battle scene as well.”
Cryptic answer? Maybe, but also intriguing! Fans of the books know exactly how Malfoy exits the story, but if Yates filmed variations on the book version for the film, it could make for pleasant surprises.
Speaking of which, we mentioned to Felton that it would be fun for Harry and Draco to somehow become friends at the very end, which apparently Felton had already pitched!
“Actually, when we shot the final scene on the platform, I did mention, I thought a hug and a kiss would be nice,” Felton said with a smirk. “David denied me that.”
