People want to adopt me: Tom Felton

London: `Harry Potter` actor Tom Felton claims people have tried to adopt him because they are obsessed with his dark character in the film.

The 26-year-old actor, who played troubled young wizard Draco Malfoy in the franchise, said he still receives odd mail from film`s fans, suggest reports.

"It`s always a bit of fun for me, the dark side of things. I`m not actually thinking of being a reckless criminal or evil mastermind. And some people are.

"Some people revel in the darker side of it, which is a little odd. I`ve had a couple of proposals from people who want to adopt me. A few requests to change my name legally to Malfoy. Gifts of homemade potions and spells. I have to admire the level of dedication," he said.
