Draco Malfoy Turns 35 Today, J.K. Rowling Confirms!

Draco Malfoy Turns 35 Today, J.K. Rowling Confirms!

There is a big birthday to celebrate today – Harry Potter character Draco Malfoy (played by Tom Felton in the movies) is turning 35!

The news was confirmed on Twitter by the book series’ author J.K. Rowling, who responded to a fan’s question about how old Draco would be turning as she knew from the books that it was his birthday on June 5.

“Draco turns 35 today. I’m not invited to the party, mainly because I keep telling girls they’re misguided to fancy him,” J.K. wrote.

Rowling previously wrote on Pottermore to warn fans about crushing on a villain.

“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 wrote. “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 prejudice and that no, he and Harry were not destined to end up best friends.”

    JKR must be stucked in the past coz now many fangirls were worshipping the villains more than hero.

    The book takes place in the mid-late 90s when he is a kid. How can he be 35? Isn’t he the same age as Harry Potter? They would be be around 30 or in their late 20s.

    She uses the “Dumblore is gay” as a way to get more profit for the books and start a controversy for no reason. She is an attention-seeking author who is stuck in the past I agree.

    Harry Potter and his year mates were born in 1980, which would make them 35 this year if they were actual people.

    wow. damn i always forget how this series is set in the early 90′s!

    He’s gay!!?

    So what? As if Harry is the end all be all. What’s amazing is the character actually having a conscience in a purely evil family.

    BTW, evil is sexy in it’s confidence, unfortunately. It’s why Loki has way more fans than Thor. Tom Hiddleston is sweet as himself, but he is deliciously sexy and evil when he is evil, much more appealing.

    Six years after the series ended she comes up with that. Why can’t she just appreciate her towering achievement. Her books have sold BILLIONS of copies. Her series is a worldwide phenomenon. Let it be.

    Yeah, she could write Draco as villains and gave him more redemption, which is something that I hope to see since in the book1 he played arch nemesis to Harry, naturally I was hoping he played constant roles ever since.
    But no JKR just threw away Draco to make room for more annoying character like Dursley (gah how many times do we had read that blasted useless muggle family in earlier chapters), Lockhart, Umbridge, and Ronald Weasley with his constant complaint.

    Dumbledore came off as asexual dude to me from the books.
    But if he’s gay, that got me thinking, what if Dumbledore is gay pedophile? Kids like Harry whose vulnerable can be his victims and they won’t say a words about it coz he had this larger than life reputation, just like IRL – many pedophiles were their favorite teacher who had great reputation that nobody suspected until one adult confessed about his painful childhood trauma and rest of allegations were crumbling like house of cards.
