J.K. Rowling never dictated for Harry Potter readers to tumble for bad child Draco Malfoy.
In fact, she suggested in a new 12 Days of Christmas story posted to Pottermore Tuesday that she found herself “unnerved” by a “number of girls who fell for this sold illusory character.”
She wrote that she does “not bonus a interest of Tom Felton, who plays Draco brilliantly in a films and, ironically, is about a nicest chairman we will ever meet.”
However, “Draco has all a dim glorious of a anti-hero; girls are really good to romanticise such people,” wrote Rowling. “All of this left me in a unenviable position of pouring cold common clarity on fervent readers’ daydreams, as we told them, rather severely, that Draco was not concealing a heart of bullion underneath all that sneering.”
And while Rowling discharged girls’ Draco crushes as an “unhealthy fantasy,” she certified there was “some unextinguished good during a heart of Draco.” For that, though, Rowing wrote that she pitied him, “just as we feel contemptible for Dudley.”
As for because Draco incited out a approach he did? He “was lifted in an atmosphere of bewail that a Dark Lord has not succeeded in holding authority of a wizarding community,” wrote Rowling, observant that he and a rest of a Malfoys suspicion Harry could be be “another, and better, Voldemort.”
These 12 Days of Christmas Pottermore tales are a present that keeps on giving!
