As a general rule, Harry Potter fans are willing to do just about anything to show their love for the universe of JK Rowling and all the characters within it.
While most people do not let this passion penetrate their real lives, others are totally committed to turning the novels into their own personal reality – which occasionally makes fan encounters very strange to the cast.
In an interview with Yahoo Movies UK, ahead of his new YouTube Premium series, Origin, Tom Felton gave up on a particular fan who took things to the extreme when he sent the actor some adoption papers for consideration.
"I have some very strange letters," he said. "A man wanted to adopt me.He had changed his name legally to Lucius Malfoy and wanted me to change my name to Draco Malfoy and to adopt me legally.I refused!"
"I have some furious Americans telling me:" Leave Harry Potter in peace, man! "What did he do to you?" "But they are very serious about how they deliver," he said. "They seem to think I had some kind of influence over [JK] Rowling is writing! "
In another example of a fanfic coming to life, Dramione shippers around the world felt as if they had won the Triwizard Tournament when Emma Watson and Tom had a mini-meeting in California with skates and snapbacks.
