Now that we are steaming ahead in 2011, we want to take one last look at the happenings of 2010 and what a great year it was for Tom Felton and Feltbeats.com. We have compiled a list of our Top 10 Tom stories last year so here we go!
10. Fan Conventions
There were plenty of Fan Conventions in 2010, some attended by Tom, some not, but all featuring Feltbeats.com members!
As you all know, Tom couldn’t make it to Ring*Con in Bonn, Germany due to shooting “From the Rough” in New Orleans, Louisiana. Still I was there to represent feltbeats.com and it was great.
Thanks to TomFeltonEU for uploading the videos of Tom at the autograph session and at the opening of the event.
9. New Projects
2010 was Tom’s busiest year yet with in addition to the end of Harry Potter fiming, a whole slew of new projects were announced such as The Apparition, From The Rough, Caesar: Rise Of The Apes, and White Other
Tom was give the honour of presenting the newest Harry Potter Part 1 trailer at the 2010 Comic-Con International and attended a round table discussion with Feltbeats.com and other Harry Potter sites.
Thanks to Feltbeats.com reporter Amy_Marie97, we’ve got this wonderful interview with Tom at ComicCon. In the interview, Tom gives more details about upcoming projects.
Our real excuse for posting this video was so we could go “hey, we found new photos of Tom at San Diego’s Comic Con.” But in actuality, it’s because the video PopCandiesTV has of Tom being screamed at by fans as he left the event was just too cute not to share.
Tom started the year by making a very gracious donation to the HP Alliance’s auction for relief in Haiti.
6. Late Night TV
Tom had the pleasure of touring the late night television circuit with visits to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and an appearance on the George Lopez show!
Tom Felton’s appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno is now fully online in two parts. In the second part you can see the clip from Malfoy Manor where Draco is faced with a disfigured Harry.
Thanks to JustJaredJr, we now have video of Tom Felton during his interview on the George Lopez show.
After the high-pitched screams that greeted Tom when he went on stage, George Lopez remarked that never before has he had a guest which elicited such a huge reaction from the crowd. Amazing!
He also has some fun with Tom – and we get to see Tom’s golf swing!
5. Tom’s 23rd Birthday
Fans gathered to talk with Feltbeats.com about the charismatic Tom Felton as his 23rd birthday approached. Watch as we speak with fans young and old along with a few close friends, in particular James and Oliver Phelps, before sticking around to see the surprise we have in store for the birthday boy.

3. Grand Opening Of The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter
In June, we had the long awaited opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Tom, his co-stars, and many members of Feltbeats.com were in attendance:

From copious media attention, I’m sure that you’ve no doubt gathered that last week was the much anticipated grand opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida. While Feltbeats set up a Live Coverage Feed of what was going on in Orlando, we also had Feltbeats Army members there at the scene. Meanwhile, here’s what happened in other news:
Here is another submitted Feltbeats report from June’s opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. In this report, we are given those first hand accounts of all the shops and delicious park treats you can only find in Hogsmeade, an extra special treat graciously given by a park worker in the Gryffindor Common Room, and an in-seat video of the ride immortalizing our own Tom Felton, the Forbidden Journey. Not to mention a short clip of Tom riding one of the park’s rides, himself.

As to be expected, interviews with Tom are making their way online in regards to Tom’s win, and all of them are quite favorable towards our favorite villain.
