`Harry Potter’ star Tom Felton denies he`s plotting rap career

Melbourne: ‘Harry Potter’ actor Tom Felton, who plays villain Draco Malfoy in the movie, has reportedly denied reports claiming that he is planning a new career as a rapper.

The Sun reported that Felton, 23, had signed a deal with an independent record label to release music in the style of British hip-hop group N-Dubz.

"I``m going to change my image - backward caps, the lot," he was purported to have said.

But speaking to Access Hollywood at the New York premiere of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’, the final instalment in the series, Felton said he was not planning a rap career.

"This is news to me," the Herald Sun quoted him as saying when asked about the report.

"Do people actually believe that I`m going into the world of rap? I think that`s as bizarre as me saying that I``m becoming an astronaut, I don`t know quite what to say," he added.
