Tom Felton takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Earlier today, Tom responded to the many challenges he received to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He posted two videos to his Instagram account, where he challenged Steven Gordon, From the Rough co-star Paul Hodge and Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint to take the challenge as well.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was created in order to raise funds and awareness for the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association (ALSA). ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a form of Motor Neuron Disease, which is neurodegenerative and ultimately fatal.

You can watch Tom’s videos below.

So far the challenge has raised over $88.5 million to date for the ALSA! You can donate over at the ALSA website. You can also check out’s challenge to Tom below! and Charles Baker challenge Tom Felton to the Ice Bucket Challenge

Over the past couple of days, the Admins for have all taken part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! Bets, Lori, Sandra and I all doused ourselves in icy cold water to raise awareness, support and money for the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association (ALSA).

And as you can see, we have all nominated our favourite wand-weilding, In-N-Out eating, guitar-strumming Brit to accept the challenge, and today so did Tom’s Murder in the First co-star Charles Baker (also known as Skinny Pete from Breaking Bad).

Tom now officially has 24 hours to complete the challenge and/or donate to the cause.

In his video, Charles says he has nominated Tom because he wants to know, “whether witches really melt in water”. (We don’t have the heart to tell him Tom’s new film Ghosts of the Pacific features water preeeeetty prominently… haha!)

Lori has nominated the entire Feltforce, and Sandra has also nominated Tom’s Harry Potter co-star Matthew Lewis to accept the challenge.

So far the challenge has raised over $22.9 million dollars for the ALSA! Amazing stuff. You can donate over at the ALSA website.

Exclusive: Interviews Tom Felton Part 3

As always, it wouldn’t be a Feltbeats interview without asking Tom Felton a few silly questions, and our latest interview was no exception. Earlier today we asked Tom’s fans what they thought his answers would be to 8 specific questions. Here are Tom’s responses.

Feltbeats: Have you ever thought you were getting punked?

Tom: Not really. Thankfully. Please don’t punk me.

Feltbeats: What’s something you think about when your alone in your car?

Tom: How cool I must look holding the steering wheel with one hand. I listen to a lot of talk radio so I’m usually chiming along with that.Timber.

Feltbeats: Favorite color socks to wear?

Tom: Any! Just to find matching socks is a task.

Feltbeats: Have you watched your Star Wars DVD’s yet?

Tom: Yes. No. The first one.

Feltbeats: Night owl or morning person?

Tom: Night owl.

Feltbeats: What’s one thing you can’t leave your house without?

Tom: My keys. But I’ve locked myself out a few times recently so…

Feltbeats: What is the weirdest thing in your refrigerator?

Tom: My girlfriend has started buying sauerkraut and it freaks me out.

Feltbeats: What’s your favorite American Candy?

Tom: M&M chocolate

Feltbeats: What’s next on your schedule?

Tom: Heading off to work on a new feature film with Joseph Fiennes called “Clavius” for the next few months which I’m very excited about!

Feltbeats: Many HP stars play an instument or sing, would he ever like to record a song as an ensemble for the fans?

Tom: I’ve tried several times to start a pop group with Daniel and Rupert with little success. Never say never.

Feltbeats: What do you think of the success of Belle? The Reviews are fantastic!

Tom: I was so happy it got the response it did. It has such a relevant message today and I’m thrilled Amma is getting the credit she deserves, I’d jump at the chance to work with her again.

Feltbeats: You recently attended the preview of Universal Orlando. What did you think of Diagon Alley?

Tom: Unbelievable. They really have raised the bar.

Feltbeats: We would most likely find Draco Malfoy down in Knockturn Alley. Where would Tom Felton hang out?

Tom: Whichever place was dog friendly. The three broomsticks, they do great food…!

Feltbeats: If you were jonesing for a Harry Potter fix, where would you rather be? Studio tour or Wizarding World of Harry Potter?

Tom: Both work differently. The studio tour is home and the park is pure escapism.

As always, it would not be a Feltbeats interview without a few silly questions. Stay tuned for Part 3 of our Exclusive interview with Tom Felton on Monday!

Tom Felton reads ‘Guenhwyvar: A Tale from The Legend of Drizzt’

Audible has released the project today and Tom is a part of it – listeners will have free access to it for 40 days.
