What a change

While browsing the internet (what else?) I stumbled over a couple of stills from the upcoming sixth “Harry Potter” movie (“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”) at movie tome. Two of them surprised me a bit. Why?

Well, this is a still from the first “Harry Potter” movie (“Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” or “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”, depending on whether you’re British or American). Leave aside Daniel Radcliffe for a moment, okay? Have a look at the boy on the left side of this picture:

That’s Tom Felton, he’s playing Draco Malfoy. He’s there in all of the movies (just as his character plays an insignificant to significant role in the books as well). In the newest movie, Draco’s role gets a lot bigger (but I’m not going to give any details, just in case you haven’t read the books and wait for the movie - I don’t want to spoil). And he has changed quite a bit too, as this still from the latest movie shows:

Who would have thought he’d turn out to look like that? But then, most of the teenaged actors of “Harry Potter” have changed a lot. Not a wonder, they were eleven (or even younger) in the first movie and are adults now.

In addition, the pictures (check them out here, if you want to) have made me wait for the next movie a lot more impatient.
