Tom Felton Talks Filming with Jason Isaacs as the Malfoy Family for "Deathly Hallows"

Actor Tom Felton has given a new interview where he discusses the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  Noting he has not yet begun filming his role as Draco Malfoy for the final two installments in the Harry Potter series, Tom said: "I can't wait for the next one, it's very exciting. I've been up to where the film is shot a couple of times and it's ready to go. I haven't started yet so can't give anything away!"

He also goes on to say how much he is looking forward again to working with actor Jason Isaacs, who memorably portrays Death Eater Lucius Malfoy and the father of Draco. Tom Felton is complimentary of the work Jason does on set, stating: "Lucius is an evil son of a gun and Jason is very good at turning that on when he's talking to you normally, it's scary." He continued

"I haven't seen him for a couple of years but he's a great guy and he is a bit of a dad. I look up to him a lot when we're filming, he's a good role model to have on the set to follow in his footsteps."

UPDATE: Thanks to Tom Felton himself as he let it be known via his official public Twitter that there was new video of him at the event speaking on Harry Potter here via Digital Spy

It’s interesting how Tom Felton looks up to Jason Isaacs, because Jason has said before how he looks up to the older actors. It’s like one big look-up-a-thon chain reaction!

It’s unreal to hear Tom say it’s been a couple of years since he’s filmed with Jason. Years, people! We’ve waited long enough!!

That was a nice bit of news. I think they play well off each other in the series. I’m so glad that Jason will be in the new movies. I missed him in the last one. I know that his character is not so nice but it’s similiar to Snape. You don’t like the character Snape very well but you love the actor.

One Two Three everyone ARRRRRRRR!!!!!!

I sense an acting Bromance brewing… Of course they’ve not started working yet but it’s REALLY nice that we’re getting these little bits. We’re always hearing how much Dan has enjoyed working with such ‘n’ such… But it’s nicer to hear what some of the others are thinking and feeling!!!!

Yay Jason – You know we’ve got the new Empire pics from last night – part of me was waiting for the pic of Jason, Tom and Helen together cos it’ll just be a strange family pic..!

I think their off-screen friendship will certainly help their performances. I’m very eager to see their latest work.

i just cant wait anymore! its so great that tom can look upto jason as a role model on set, that really helps them be in character more on camera even if lucius and draco dont act like a normal father and son…

I cannot wait to receive more word from him as he begins filming. It is wonderful to see that he holds Mr. Isaacs in such esteem. Of course, who doesn’t? ;)
