Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) has a new interview with MTV where he discusses both how he sees the character of Draco Malfoy overall, and how his character will be playing out in "Deathly Hallows":

"From my character's point of view, a lot has been left to interpretation," Felton said, pinpointing an important-yet-subtle moment from the final film, in which Draco is tasked with the painful decision of whether to help or hinder his nemesis' progress. "[There is] one take where you want to help Harry. The books, I think, kind of left it up to the interpretation of the reader, really, so one way you internally want to help him, the other side where you're just confused, so I'm intrigued to see which bits David [Yates] cuts out of it."
The rest of the article details Felton's opinion of Draco Malfoy's character, including how J. K. Rowling described him as "vulnerable." You can read more here and see the latest trailer for both parts of "Deathly Hallows" in our Video Galleries.

The article says he is sometimes a “vulnerable villain”. I’ve never seen him in tht light- just a bully and a confused/misguided person sometimes

god dammit! If they turn draco into the nice guys i’m going to scream…fangirls of course will go crazy!

I’ve never seen draco as reformed…he merely did what his did and hid it all from everyone and admitted defeat…

That moment when Draco is asked to identify the Trio at Malfoy Manor is my favorite Draco moment ever. I hope they don’t cut it!

I’m really intrigued to see how they choose to portray Draco in the last movie, but I’m sure Tom did an amazing job as usual!

I do think that Draco is both a bully and vulnerable. You see that on film, especially in HBP. He is given a task but can’t fulfill it because he always seemed to be dealing with his inner turmoil. He seemed stressed out all the time. In the beginning of course he was nothing but a straight out bully but as he got older he became more complicated. Just like he said in the article, he has poor examples for parents. Harry has no parents but look at all the parental influences he has. I’m going to be very intrigued as well to see which scene they choose in DH.

heart pounding. love this in HP: so much room for interpretation!
Fact of the matter is that for me only Voldemort was insurmountably evil.

I love how seriously these guys take this movie. I don’t think you guys realize how easily this whole movie series could have failed. Tom’s right!
