Tom Felton: “Daniel and I have often talked about Harry and Draco as two side of a coin; both with different influences and different parental guidance. So I think if you actually got deep down to the roots of Draco, you probably would find out that his heart does lie maybe slightly more on the good side.”
JUST. LOOK. AT. DRACO’S. FACE.
#omg she punched my boyfriend.
#damn i’d love to tie up harry like that aw ye- WHAT THE FUCK GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY BOYFRIEND
But this is one of the first times that Malfoy is a bit startled by what he’s getting into. Verbally taunting someone is one thing, but he doesn’t actually expect Umbridge to hit him, and really mean it. In fact, I think this is one of the crazy things about that character. No one really takes her seriously, and when she shows her really dark side, people are surprised and not really sure if they can believe what happened.
