It was one of the most satisfying moments of the entire Harry Potter series, and now Draco Malfoy himself, Tom Felton, has spoken out to the Huffington Post about that amazing scene from The Prisoner of Azkaban when he got punched in the face by Hermione Granger.
You remember the scene right? Of course you do, but that's no reason not to relive it again:
Phoar, it's been over 10 years since that happened and it still leaves me cheering for Hermione every time.
While speaking to the Huffington Post about his new film Against the Sun, Malfoy was asked the question we all wanted to know the answer to: "What was it like being punched by Emma Watson?" He replied:
Uh, pretty hardcore. She’s got a mean right hook, that girl. It was originally a slap I think, so I said, "Let’s test it out now. Give me a slap and try to work on it," meaning give me a screen slap, a fake slap. But she actually smacked me on the face pretty hard, and I walked away from that rather listening impaired with my tail tucked between my legs.
That's our girl! Though I have to say, I'm definitely happy that they changed it from a slap to a punch, way cooler.
Felton was also able to let us know his favorite lines from the film:
Anything with the word "Potter" in it. The one about the hippogriff, "Bloody pigeon," I believe is a fun one. I like that.
Though he admits the one the fans seem to like best is "my father will hear about this."
This interview comes just days after Felton's startling revelation that he took the Pottermore sorting test and was actually sorted into Gryffindor house, despite spending a decade playing a Slytherin!
Not only that, but J.K. Rowling was quick to reply that she always knew that Felton was more suited to gold and red than green and silver, but didn't want to ruin his motivation! Hmm, watch out J.K. I'm sure his father will hear about this!
