Deathly Hallows Filming Watch: Room of Requirement Still Underway

For the over 100,000 of us that follow actor Tom Felton on his official Twitter page, you might have seen a series of very interesting tweets of late as Tom is hard at work filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This filming is for the perilous Room of Requirement scenes involving his character Draco Malfoy at the end of the story and require a bit of flying and other stunt work from the actors in harnesses and such. Back on August 14 in all cap frustration, Tom wrote: "HARDEST DAY FILMING! followed by "I hate the harness!!! get me in a bath :(" Today, filming continued on these intense scenes, and in a series of updates we learned how painful these are: "back at work...harnessed up...still bruised from friday!!!...had lunch...fed and watered...getting harnessed a gd team of stunt boys keeping me going & pushing me forward to get some gd takes!...never wanted to finish a days filming as early as when im doing stunts!!! ridiculously tired, hot and bothered!blisters on my hands :( bruising more and more in each take :( skins sore from the harness rubbing :( not so glamorous today...exhausted."

Hang in there Tom, we are all rooting for you! You can also see a relatively new photo of the actor on his official page here. Filming continues on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Leavesden Studios, England.

This is so interesting, I had no idea that they took so much of a beating during filming, I had kind of assumed that they have stunt doubles for the more physical scenes. It’s way cool they do so much of their own stunts though.
It’s great that so much time and effort and attention is being paid to so many different scenes like with the escape from Privet Drive, too.

Being in a harness that long has got to be painful. The film is going to be fantastic.

Try acting once and you will agree that it is not for everyone as it takes a select few to bring the movie to life. He is doing his job in the last film and i can’t wait till the rest of the films come out.
