At yesterday’s press conference, Tom and Dan were asked how they felt concerning former co-star Robert Pattinson and his rise to fame in the Twilight saga. They told Digital Spy:
Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Tom Felton have revealed that they are happy for former co-star Robert Pattinson following his success in Twilight.
The actors, who play Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy respectively, appeared alongside Pattinson (Cedric Diggory) in 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire, the fourth instalment in the wizard franchise.
Speaking at a press conference, Radcliffe said: “I won’t pretend we’re best mates or knew each other really well but we really enjoyed working with each other, or at least I enjoyed working with him! He’s doing brilliantly, which is fantastic.
“The thing that is interesting for me, is that Twilight is the only other franchise that comes close to Potter in terms of the mania that surrounds it, the attention that the leads get and just how global it is.”
Felton added: “It’s just great to see someone who has been in Harry Potter have a life after it, and a much bigger one! So I wish him all the success and I will see Twilight soon, I promise!”
If you remember, Feltbeats.com previously reported on the rumors of Tom joining Rob on the set of the vampire series. If anything comes of those, we will let you know.
