Malfoy-mad fan scares 'Harry Potter' star

'Harry Potter' star Tom Felton admits he finds it a little scary when fans of the wizard franchise get a little bit carried away.

The actor, who plays Draco Malfoy in the movies, recalled one of the more alarming requests he's had from a fan.

An American man who had changed his name to Lucius Malfoy, the name of Felton's on-screen father's character, actually wanted to adopt him, hoping the star would become a real life Malfoy. He apparently hoped Felton would go and live with him in his house, which is based on the Malfoy mansion in the movie.

The 22-year-old told Attitude magazine, "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".
