We all know Harry Potter fans are definitely passionate and that’s totally fine, but maybe sometimes one of them crosses a line. Like the man who tried to adopt Tom Felton.
Yes, that happened.
Felton, of course, is known for playing Harry Potter’s rival Draco Malfoy. The actor not only gave life to the character, but also made him really likeable. Maybe way too much.
During a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, Felton talked about weird fan encounters. The actor revealed he got some weird letters, including one from a man who wanted to adopt him.
He shares that the Harry Potter fan had changed his name to Lucius Malfoy and wanted Felton to change his name as well, so he could be adopted. We’re confused too.
“One man wanted to adopt me. He had changed his name legally to Lucius Malfoy and wanted me to change my name to Draco Malfoy and to legally adopt me,” he explains.
“I declined!” Felton clarifies. We’re thankful.
The actor also added that many fans confused him with his character, which led to angry letters.
“I’ve got some angry Americans tell me ‘Leave Harry Potter alone man! What did he ever do to you?’ but are deadly serious in how they deliver it,” he shares. “They seem to think I had some kind of influence on Rowling’s writing!”
Harry Potter reunions that melted our hearts
We all love a good reunion, and this one between Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Tom Felton, was seriously magical.
Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter in the franchise, hung up his wand to pursue a new endeavor on Broadway, where he is currently starring in a new play called the Lifespan Of A Fact.
His former rival and fellow HP co-star Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the series, decided to pop in to see Radcliffe in action.
After the show, Felton shared a picture of he and Radcliffe in what appears to be Radcliffe’s dressing room to his Instagram Thursday evening (Oct. 4). Captioning the photo with a simple “go see it,” while also calling Radcliffe “fantastic” in the play.
The reunion follows another magical reunion that happened a few months ago between Felton and Matthew Lewis, who played Neville in the series.
While Felton’s post to Radcliffe was a little more heartwarming, we did get to see him pick up Malfoy’s villainous ways by trying to convert Lewis to join Gryffindor’s rival Hogwarts house, Slytherin.
Unfortunately, it looks like Draco is going to have to recruit someone else because Neville certainly isn’t joining Slytherin anytime soon. While the post showcased a recruitment-gone-wrong, our muggle hearts are still swooning over the Harry Potter reunion.
We seriously can’t get over these reunions! That’s not the only Harry Potter related news to be excited about.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald is about to hit theaters Nov. 16, and we can’t wait.
