Tom Felton: No Confirmation Yet on Aging for Deathly Hallows Epilogue

Felton Interviews

Several times in the past, cast members have discussed the possibility of playing themselves 19 years in the future for the epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. MTV has a new interview online tonight with actor Tom Felton who says he has not had confirmation yet on how that scene will be handled. Quotage:



"For the big-screen adaptation, does that mean older actors will portray Harry and the rest of the grown-up students? Or that the young stars will be aged through makeup effects or CGI technology? No decision has been made, according to Tom Felton, who plays peroxide-blond villain Draco Malfoy. "We haven't shot that yet, and I still haven't had the confirmation whether I'm doing it or we're going to get someone else to do it," he told MTV News while promoting the DVD for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." "I haven't heard too much. I guess they're still making decisions about it now. It is a very exciting scene. I know Daniel [Radcliffe] and I have talked about it and said it'd be a lot of fun to do."


Tom later weighed in with more: "While Felton joked that he'd be cool with having Brad Pitt or Leonardo DiCaprio step in to play an adult Draco, the British actor maintained that he's looking forward to seeing what he will look like 19 years in the future. "It'd be kind of freaky to see what they come up with," he said
."

I know you can’t always trust wikipedia, but I read that they intend to use make-up and CG on the original actors. I haven’t checked the sources, but it does sound like the best thing to do. And it’ll be fun to see the older-look interpretations :)

I just want them to have dan, emma, rupert, bonnie, and tom to portray the characters. I feel it would just be better, but that’s me being selfish. lol

It’d be very confusing to use differant actors. It’s easy to age people 19 years, especially when they are all older than the chacters they play.

But I really hope they will use Dan, Rupert, Emma, Bonnie & Tom on the last scene, the 19 years later. It will be interesting to know what they will look like if the aged 19 years.

It will be interesting to see how Dan, Emma, Rupert, Bonnie & Tom will look like if they were aged by 19 years.
