Hardcore fan spooks Harry Potter star Tom Felton with adoption scheme

Sydney: Harry Potter star Tom Felton once met an American fan who wanted to adopt him.

The actor, who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, admitted that success of the movies has bred a group of hardcore followers, especially in the US and Japan.

However, Felton became spooked when one fan revealed a detailed scheme to adopt him.

"I``ve had requests for adoption .In America, a man changed his name legally to Lucius Malfoy, showed me the documentation and then sent me documents to disown my parents and move to be with him in the States in his house, which he had named Malfoy Manor. I kindly rejected that. That was quite scary,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Tom as telling to the Attitude Magazine.

The next instalment of the popular series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is set for release in November this year.
