The Pottermore website has some new information on Harry Potter character, Draco Malfoy. J.K. Rowling revealed more about the villainous Malfoy during her 12 Days of Christmas writings. 

"Draco remains a person of dubious morality in the seven published books, and I have often had cause to remark on how unnerved I have been by the number of girls who fell for this particular fictional character (although I do not discount the appeal of Tom Felton, who plays Draco brilliantly in the films, and ironically, is about the nicest person you could meet)," J.K. wrote on Pottermore, after fans answered a riddle to unlock the text. "Draco has all the glamour of the anti-hero; girls are very apt to romanticise such people. All of this left me in the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent readers' daydreams as I told them, rather severely, that Draco was not concealing a heart of gold under all that sneering and prejudice and that no, he and Harry were not destined to end up best friends."

"I pity Draco. Being raised by the Malfoys would be a very damaging experience, and Draco undergoes dreadful trials as a direct result of his family's misguided principles," J.K. adds.
