Tom Felton is known to Harry Potter fans as the evil Draco Malfoy. He chatted to 24Frames about the influence the film series has had on the young adult market, believing it’s got a lot to do with a bunch of new “tween” films about to hit our screens.
“I think ['Harry Potter'] certainly helped” pave the way for movies such as “Hunger Games,” Felton said at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, where he was on hand to present new footage from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.”
“I think one of the great things about what ["Harry Potter" book author] Jo Rowling has done is she’s made literacy and reading kind of cool again. And that allows the way for lots of these other franchises to kind of come through,” he said.
