Rowling writes how she’s often forced to crush the dreams of fans who nurse strange feelings for Hogwarts’s sexiest Slytherin. “Draco remains a person of dubious morality in the seven published books, and I have often had cause to remark on how unnerved I have been by the number of girls who fell for this particular fictional character,” she writes. “All this has left me in the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent readers’ daydreams, as I told them, rather severely, that Draco was not concealing a heart of gold under all that sneering…”
And from The Telegraph:
On Facebook, Draco Malfoy has a number of dedicated fan pages, including Draco Malfoy Lovers, which has 1421 members.
Rowling added that girls should heed those common warnings – bad boys can’t be changed, and least of all by you. “Draco has all the dark glamour of the anti-hero; girls are very apt to romanticise such people,” she continued.
