It seems like all the kids in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1” are getting some love and affection. Fleur and Bill finally get hitched. Hermione and Ron continue their courtship. Even Harry gets to play some kissy face, albeit as part of Ron’s Horcrux-infused hallucination.
And then there’s Draco Malfoy. The conflicted young wizard doesn’t so much as get a chance to flirt, seeing as how he’s tied up at Malfoy Manor, plotting with Lord Voldemort to conquer the world. And according to Tom Felton, who plays Draco, that just isn’t fair.
“Draco doesn’t get any sort of female attention! What’s that about? It is a little upsetting,” he said, laughing, in a recent interview with MTV News. “While the other teenagers are flirting and doing all sorts, Draco seems to be far too busy on some dark, evil mission.”
Felton should take heart that despite his lack of onscreen loving, he’s got oodles of fans who swoon over his every move. Hollywood Crush has not only selected him as this week’s Hump Day Hottie, but also pegged him as the franchise’s sexiest actor.
Ever the modest fellow, Felton laughed at the “completely untrue and unfathomable” idea that he’s a hotter commodity than Robert Pattinson. Nonetheless, Felton is undoubtedly picking up Draco’s girl-getting slack — a fact the Brit actor finds appropriate.
“I think it’s quite suited,” he said. “If Draco is lost in a love, that could have taken him away from the task at hand.”
