O.K., so maybe Draco Malfoy is evil by nurture rather than by nature, but it’s still tough not to hate him. The Harry Potter villain, more bully than mastermind, was bad news from Day One, and the Sorting Hat knew it — plus, he’s got the heaps of gold in Gringotts and the oafish sidekicks to back him up. Actor Tom Felton summons the signature Malfoy noncharm with aplomb. The young Draco was particularly malicious, but as he got older he had moments of humanity. Still, his pureblood pride kept him at arm’s length from heroism, and 19 years later, even when he was good and beaten — and no longer a child — he still couldn’t bring himself to fully acknowledge the bit of good inside him.
