Harry Potter's Tom Felton Reveals The Weird Fan Request That Left Him Stunned
This seems extreme
While most people don’t let this passion seep into their actual lives, others are fully invested in turning the novels into their own personal reality - which can occasionally make fan encounters pretty strange for the cast.
In an interview with Yahoo Movies UK ahead of his new YouTube Premium series Origin, Tom Felton opened up about one particular fan who took things to the extreme when he sent the actor some adoption papers for consideration.
"I've got some very strange letters," he said. "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. I declined!"
"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 said. "They seem to think I had some kind of influence on [JK] Rowling's writing!"
In another example of fanfic coming to life, Dramione shippers across the globe were left feeling like they’d won the Triwizard Tournament when Emma Watson and Tom had a mini-reunion in California featuring skateboards and snapbacks.
Wonder what IRL Lucius Malfoy is doing nowadays?
