Badurday- July 9, 2011- Tom Felton

Today in honor of the upcoming last Harry Potter film, I’m posting these photos of Tom Felton, a/k/a Draco Malfoy. He was such a snot nosed little kid in the first movie but he’s grown up to be quite the  handsome fellow. I love that his character’s name, like most of the ones from the books, came from ancient history, Greek and Latin roots.  Draco was an Athenian law maker and his laws provided for severe punishments for minor offenses.  He lived in ancient Greece in the 600s BC.  Malfoy comes from the Latin word for malevolent or malicious. I have great admiration for JK Rowling and her sublime use of language skills in naming her characters.

Lucky for us, the guy that plays Draco is really nothing like his character. He seems to be quite a pleasant young man in the interviews I’ve seen him in.

Just as an aside, my newest book comes out on Friday, July 15 from  http://stores.desertbreezepublishing.com/StoreFront.bok  and I wanted to share the cover here, too.   

So, enjoy Draco, enjoy the end of the Harry Potter saga and enjoy your week.

  1. He’s not so bad out of character much like Jason Issacs who plays his father if you can get past the evil characters they are good looking men. Thanks for sharing.
