Movie Magic Magazine

 An interview with David Heyman from Life Story/Movie Magic magazine.   He has glowing words about Tom for his performance in HBP.  The scans are clickable so you should be able to read the whole article if you like.  I excerpted what he said about Tom at the bottom.


 


 


 


An excerpt:

MM:  Is Yates continuing to push the actors the way that he did in the last film?

David Heyman:  A perfect example of that is Tom Felton as Malfoy.  I think Tom's always been wonderful, but he's always played it slightly more heightened.  he's been the villain, as it were.  But in this film, partly because it's in the book, partly because of what we've chosen to emphasize in the script and partly because of what David (Yates) is bringing out as director, it's a much more complex role - and Tom Felton is embracing that.  He is the chosen one just like Harry is the chosen one. He's been chosen by Voldemort to kill Dumbledore just as Harry is the "chosen one" and Voldemort is his destiny.  Draco is not altogether comfortable with the task he's been given. On the one hand, he's excited about making a name for himself and the import, but he struggles with his conscience and whether it's something he wants or should be doing.  And those nuances that Tom is bringing to it are terrific.  It feels like a deeper, richer character than we've been able to see to date.
