Thanks to Leaky Con for the updates during Tom’s panel yesterday :
“Alan [Rickman] insisted on having this long cloak that draped on the floor. Alan turned around after the first take and said, ‘Don’t step on my effing cloak.’ We thought he was joking— he wasn’t.”

“After a few times, I realized these [cons] are one of the best places in the world… I made a video
@DragonCon. I showed my friends & I tried to explain about the positivity and love. It took me the long time to find the right words. The documentary came out of that.” #LeakyCon
Best fan interaction? @TomFelton says it’s impossible to think of just one… Other than one guy calling him a dick. He asked his mum what he had done wrong, and his mum said “it means you’ve done your job well.” #LeakyCon
