Tom Felton is 'Team Slitherin' all the way

As the blondest brat in the Harry Potter universe, actor Tom Felton has no qualms about portraying the theoretically unlikable Draco Malfoy. So why do so many fans devote themselves to "Team Slitherin?" Felton muses on the possibilities with CNN.

CNN: You have a fairly active dialogue with your fans. Can you explain to the muggles why fans are so into "Team Slytherin?"

Felton: I definitely can't answer; I have no idea. I'm always curious when 7-year-olds and 8-year-olds come up to me and say, "Yeah, Draco's my favorite character." I always think, "Hmmm, I'm not sure if he should be."

I'm not sure. I've been told that people like a bad guy, or I guess people love to hate someone. I guess Draco has filled that role for quite a few years. But yeah, I'm "Team Slytherin" all the way.

CNN: Was it ever difficult to play such a mean-spirited and dirisive character as Draco Malfoy?

Felton: Nothing but joy. I took great joy in every minute of it. It was like playing the polar opposite of me, really. It was kind of easy to step into his shoes and be delightfully horrible to everyone around me. I really enjoyed it and it never struck me as being difficult. Which is a little strange, in itself. I guess there's an evil kid inside me waiting to get out.

CNN: Is it ever possible for you to have a good hair day after a decade of bleaching your locks for the role?
