Off the Cuff With Peter Travers: Tom Felton


In Peter Travers' second Off the Cuff interview — an informal chat in his office where Hollywood stars are grilled on a variety of topics — Rolling Stone's movie critic breaks out his own magic wand (which looks like a blunt, he points out) for Tom Felton, who plays loathsome bully Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films (read Travers' review of the sixth film). Felton recalled the joys of listening to blaring '60s punk at 5 a.m. while getting his make-up done on the Potter set care of Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, and revealed how auditioning for the role of Potter and Ron Weasley led to a rainbow of humiliating hairstyles. He also clues Travers in on the trick to playing a really bad guy, and strums a little acoustic guitar.
