Tom Felton Talks Acting and More in New Interview

Felton Interviews

Readers may remember that last week, the first part of an interview with actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) appeared online via Feltbeats.com.  The second part of that interview with the young actor is now online and features Tom discussing future acting opportunities, his most recent work in the film "The Disappeared," and more on his music.  Tom talks at length about his most recent work in the film "The Disappeared," which is currently screening at various festivals in the UK and the States.  Of this film, Tom comments on its production by saying:

"Yeah, it was very different filming “The Disappeared.” We shot the whole thing in twenty-six days, and my actual part only required six days filming. So it was great working as fast as we did, which was a big contrast to filming on Harry Potter.

"It was a very small crew, so we got to know each other very well and very quickly. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Johnny [Kevorkian]; he was great, and really enthusiastic. Harry [Treadaway] was also great to work with; I learned a lot from him, and I think he is very talented actor.

"The genre of the film is different to what everyone is used to; its a very dark and British film. Playing Simon was strange. It was slightly weird to be playing someone who was so normal and real. In many respects, it was good to be able to play a character that wasn’t so contrasting to myself; it helps to be able to relate to the character you play."
Tom then comments on the possibility of being apart of a film adaptation of the Ray Stokes novel "Emma of Lulworth Cove."  He is quoted as saying:  "It’s very interesting. I was very flattered when Ray Stokes approached me and said, “Would you be interested?” It’s still obviously a little bit in the air, but I really hope that the funding goes through, and, if it does, I’ll be very excited about taking on that role. I look forward to filming in Dorset as well, because it would be a beautiful place to do it."

Finally, the topics of his interest in music and the original songs (Felton insists they are merely "just sort of ideas") that have appeared on YouTube are discussed.  Quoteage:
"When the YouTube videos sort of started taking off, I used to look at every positive comment and felt really touched that A) all these people had listened to it but B) most of the comments sounded genuine, and there weren’t really that many negatives. So that sort of spurred me to write a few more and to put them on and make them available in any way I knew – through the web site, and through iTunes."
As with the last interview, audio clips featuring Tom accompany the text of the interview.  This interview is part of a four part series in the lead up to Tom's November 12th appearance on the ITV2 show, “Jack Osbourne: Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie.”

am i the only one who REALLY dislikes the Leaky redesign? So many adverts, interruptions, inserts. It’s too busy and too commercial, makes reading unpleasant and difficult.

Tom’s interview was excellent! He is a very articulate and forward looking young man. I’m not a big fan of “modern” music, I prefer Classical, but he is one I would listen to! He’s a remarkable man!
