In a follow up to our MTV Movie Awards nominations story below, actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) has made comments about his nomination, working Harry Potter costar Helena Bonhamn Carter, and of a scene cut from the “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” film. On the subject of his nomination for Best Villain, Mr. Felton is quoted as saying:

“It’s a massive honor,” he said. “Especially given that it’s a fan vote. That makes it quite touching. And it’s classic for me, because for almost a decade, kids have been running onto set and hugging Daniel [Radcliffe] and shaking Emma [Watson]‘s hand. I try and be as polite as I can, and I never seem to get anywhere with them. Finally, I’m in a category that celebrates that fact!”

The young actor went on to speak of working with actress Helena Bonham Carter, who portrays the character of Bellatrix in the Harry Potter films, saying that she is his “idol.” He goes on to say: “I’ve learned more off her than anyone else.”
Lastly, Mr. Felton made comments about a scene which was cut from the “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” film, right before filming was set to take place. Quoteage:

“In the fourth film, I got turned into a ferret,” he said. “In the original script, it says that in the transition back from ferret to human, I was going to be naked, and I was going to have to run through the courtyard with about 60 extras and 50 film crew and run out with my cheeks on show. For some reason, they pulled that at the last minute. I don’t know why. Maybe they thought it was too explicit for young viewers. Maybe something about not having a wide-angle lens!”
