His father will hear about this. Tom Felton, known for playing everyone's favorite wizard bully Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, is Dallas-bound. He will be a special guest at LeakyCon on Saturday, Aug. 10 and Sunday, Aug. 11.
In addition to being available for autographs and photographers with fans, there will be an opportunity to see a less commonly seen side of the star when he performs a concert on Saturday, which will be exclusive to LeakyCon attendees. On Sunday you might want to get to the convention center and start lining up early for an on-stage interview, which is open to anyone attending the convention (the exact time of that Q&A is still TBD).
Those options are good for the masses, because getting up close and personal won't come cheap. On top of the LeakyCon admission price itself, autographs from Felton will run you $100, while photographs are $125. If you're positive that you want as much Malfoy in your life as possible, you can opt for a $325 Draco Pass, which will get you "single-day access to LeakyCon Dallas for Sunday, Aug. 11, a guaranteed autograph and photograph with Tom Felton, reserved guaranteed seating in a spotlight interview session featuring Tom Felton, and an exclusive Draco Pass t-shirt."
For the uninitiated muggles in the crowd, LeakyCon (named after The Leaky Cauldron pub in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels) is a large, world-traveling fan convention that has made stops in cities like Boston, Orlando and Dublin, Ireland. Last year marked the event's first-ever stop in Dallas, and Dumbledore's Army showed up in full force, forcing the organizers to move to a bigger venue just to accommodate the large demand. The event was so successful that its 2019 return to Dallas was announced before its debut had even happened.
If you're interested in seeing special guests that Hermoine Granger didn't punch in the face, the LeakyCon Dallas lineup also includes Scarlett Byrne (Pansy Parkinson) Afshan Azad (Padma Patil) and James Payton (Frank Longbottom). In keeping with a long history of book love, the convention will also host several bestselling authors, including Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give), Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homo Spiens Agenda) and D-FW's own Julie Murphy (Dumplin').
LeakyCon runs Aug. 9 through Aug. 11 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Tickets are on sale now, ranging from $59 for a single day to $149 for a weekend pass.
