Some girls love the bad boys (it’s true!), but Tom Felton kind of thinks your crush on Draco Malfoy is wrong.
Today when a fan tweeted Tom her new ‘Draco Malfoy is my boyfriend’ T-shirt, he tweeted this back to her:

Love the little apology he slipped in there to J.K. Rowling for making one of her villains so likeable, to which she replied:
Well, yeah—we blame him too. He’s just so . . . lovable. When the actor who plays an unlovable character is super sweet, it’s a little hard to separate the two!
While we’re on the topic of Harry Potter, let’s talk about how J.K. Rowling confirmed via Twitter today that what he favorite fan theory is:
Dumbledore as death. It’s a beautiful theory and it fits. https://t.co/QqTQm2QnI0

The theory originates from ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers,’ which tells the story of the Peverell Brothers and the rewards they received for cheating Death: the invisibility cloak, the elder wand, and the resurrection stone.
These three items are referred to as The Deathly Hallows.
In ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers,’ Voldemort is considered the oldest brother who sought power (the Elder Wand). Snape is seen as the middle brother, who took his own life after resurrecting the girl “he had once hoped to marry, before her untimely death.” And Harry Potter is the youngest brother, who escapes Death with the invisibility cloak before greeting “Death as an old friend.”
So the theory suggests that Dumbledore is Death. He’s the only wizard to have ever had all three Deathly Hallows in his possession; he greeted Harry at King’s Cross; he’s the one who gave Harry the invisibility cloak, and he helped orchestrate Snape and Voldemort’s deaths.
Seems like a very fitting theory to us. Plus it’s another excuse for a reread!
