Felton: 'Potter' cast feel pressure

Felton: 'Potter' cast feel pressure

Rex Features

Tom Felton has admitted that the cast of Harry Potter feel under pressure to be good role models.

Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy, claimed that the stars are often required to "keep things under their hats" because of their young fanbase.

He told DS: "I feel slightly under pressure. When we're in the studios there's kids coming around all day.

"It's not so bad for me as Draco because he's a bad character, but there are these kids that look up to the cast.

"There's definitely a feeling that you need to keep things under your hat."

The 20-year-old added: "There's also the pride of working for Warner Bros. We don't want to make an a**e of ourselves and demoralise the producers."

Speaking about his career plans beyond Potter, Felton said: "Mark my words, if you see me in two years stacking shelves in Tesco, I wouldn't be surprised.

"There's a mixture of relief and disappointment. It's a relief because the end is in sight, but equally terrifying is that I don't know what I'm going to do afterwards. I've no idea."

Felton will play as part of the England team in Sunday's UNICEF Soccer Aid event, which airs on ITV at 6pm.

J.K. Rowling Outs Hogwarts Character

Published: 10/20/07, 2:46 PM EDT

NEW YORK (AP) - Harry Potter fans, the rumors are true: Albus Dumbledore, master wizard and Headmaster of Hogwarts, is gay. J.K. Rowling, author of the mega-selling fantasy series that ended last summer, outed the beloved character Friday night while appearing before a full house at Carnegie Hall.

After reading briefly from the final book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," she took questions from audience members.

She was asked by one young fan whether Dumbledore finds "true love."

"Dumbledore is gay," the author responded to gasps and applause.

She then explained that Dumbledore was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle between good and bad wizards. "Falling in love can blind us to an extent," Rowling said of Dumbledore's feelings, adding that Dumbledore was "horribly, terribly let down."

Dumbledore's love, she observed, was his "great tragedy."

"Oh, my god," Rowling concluded with a laugh, "the fan fiction."

Potter readers on fan sites and elsewhere on the Internet have speculated on the sexuality of Dumbledore, noting that he has no close relationship with women and a mysterious, troubled past. And explicit scenes with Dumbledore already have appeared in fan fiction.

Rowling told the audience that while working on the planned sixth Potter film, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," she spotted a reference in the script to a girl who once was of interest to Dumbledore. A note was duly passed to director David Yates, revealing the truth about her character.

Rowling, finishing a brief "Open Book Tour" of the United States, her first tour here since 2000, also said that she regarded her Potter books as a "prolonged argument for tolerance" and urged her fans to "question authority."

Not everyone likes her work, Rowling said, likely referring to Christian groups that have alleged the books promote witchcraft. Her news about Dumbledore, she said, will give them one more reason.

so is everyone excited!!!???

I'm positively embarassed that I'm not going to be able to pick up my book MYSELF on Saturday at the Borders by my house.  I'm going to be out of town and have checked to see if I could reserve a book where I'm going.....  (I can't - they stopped taking pre-orders last week) but no dice.  So - I'm having to give *security information* to Borders so that my friend can go pick up this book for me...... information on me and information on her.  O.o  Apparently they aren't getting a large enough shipment in to cover all of the books they need so they've started upping the security.  

HP Artricle in today's news:  Weird when you consider that there is an article running in today's Wall Street Journal about all of the Deathly Hallows leaks going about.  Apparently there was a review of the book posted by the Maryland Sun online  (please don't post that here).  They somehow obtained an advanced copy.  And randomly it seems that some folks have received theirs at their HOME(!!!) due to some freak accident from a shipping warehouse. 

Going to any parties this weekend?  Please share!

ALSO - did anyone check out the A&E Harry Potter special (they're running it again so set your Tivos!) hosted by Jason Isaacs?

On Saturday July 29th at 12AM EST they're running Harry Potter:  The Hidden Secrets

Just for fun:  There is a brief blurb about Mugglenet.com in this week's Entertainment Weekly Magazine.  (the one with Daniel Radcliffe on the front.
