Tom Felton is back in the magic business starring as the rock star-looking demon in Netflix's A BABYSITTER'S GUIDE TO MONSTER HUNTING. The HARRY POTTER star traumatizes young teens as the "Grand Guignol" in the new movie now streaming on Netflix. The actor reveals his nightmare demon was inspired by Rolling Stone's Mick Jagger in his swagger, and the musician in him was thrilled to have a small singing role. CineMovie also asked the actor best known as Draco Malfoy if he's over the Harry Potter craze.
Directed by Rachel Talalay ("The Flash"), who first worked with Felton when he was 7 years-old, A BABYSITTER'S GUIDE TO MONTER HUNTING is based on Joe Ballarini's popular stories of the same name. The film also stars Tamara Smart (ARTEMIS FOWL), Oona Laurence (BAD MOMS) and Indya Moore ("Posse").
