Felton Defends Co-star Radcliffe

TOM FELTON has come to the defence of his HARRY POTTER co-star DANIEL RADCLIFFE following a media report accusing the actor of dabbling in drugs.
Radcliffe was forced to deny allegations he had been puffing on cannabis at a party after a series of pictures published in Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper on Friday (13Nov09) apparently showed the 20 year old smoking a roll-up cigarette.
Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the wizard franchise, admits his pal was left shaken by the claims but he's convinced Radcliffe will be able to weather the media storm.
He tells U.K. TV show GMTV, "I spoke to him briefly just to make sure he was OK and he seemed to be dealing with it alright. I think he's come to terms with the fact that the press are not always on his side. It doesn't make it easier when people are publishing articles that aren't true.
"Obviously I feel for the guy, I know he's got a very strong head on him and I know he'll sail through this one easily. It's not easy, but no one can do it better than Daniel."

I'm someone that has been setup and this has the same feeling. Who is this Wadia Tazi? Why is her word so golden all of a sudden? Dan Radcliffe has done so many good things for people! Then to see them turn on his like this just makes me sick!!! I e-mailed the UK Home Office today to see if it isn't a crime to not report pot use to the police. I'll ask it again WHERE IS THE PROOF? There isn't any1 the whole thing is just BS. Yours Ken
