The actor’s IMDB web page states that he had not learn any Harry Potter books earlier than efficiently auditioning for the function of Harry’s rival, Draco Malfoy, again in 1999.
Lauren Laverne requested Tom about it through the One Show on Tuesday. “That couldn’t be true,” replied Tom, with a teasing grimace. The 34-year-old then revealed he was caught out by director Chris Columbus as he tried to blag his manner by way of questions on JK Rowling’s books.
“They lined up all the Dracos I guess, and asked them which part of the book they were most excited about seeing made into film,” Tom informed The One Show. “I only realised that when the chap next to me was answering the question, that I did not know what the hell they were talking about. So I sort of repeated what the chap next to me said and Chris Columbus, the director, saw straight through my lie, and that may have helped clinch me the part for Draco. It worked out in my favour!”
Tom was solid as Slytherin boy Draco for all eight Harry Potter movies. He was reunited with fellow stars together with Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson for Harry Potter twentieth Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, which first aired on New Year’s Day this yr to mark the twentieth anniversary of the primary movie was launched in cinemas.
