Feltbeats.com’s 2010 Year In Review

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 many of you know, Tom attended Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia in 2009. While many of us hoped he would return again this year, we are quite happy that he had to spend his time with hairy apelike creatures instead. However, in many a conversation leading up to his final filming schedule being released for “Cesar: Rise of the Apes,” he had still hoped to join up. We decided after it was determined the producers would not let him leave Canada that we would instead bring the con to him.
Phelps

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.

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 had a chance to discuss his role of “Patrick” in The Apparition recently with MTV.com, and we learn exactly how long he’ll be in Berlin, and that not only his character mentally different from his iconic role of Draco Malfoy, it’s physically different as well.
Tom Vancouver
Just Jared Jr. has reported that Tom Felton is in Vancouver Canada filming one of his latest projects: Caesar: Rise of the Apes.
In October, we were introduced to the brilliant “White Other”, Tom’s latest film venture:
Ray Marsden
A character channeled by our own Tom Felton, Ray has come to life in a secret project to be announced later this week. Tom is breathtaking as he portrays the anguish of a troubled youth demanding to see a patient in hospital while being confronted by a skeptical nurse, lonely and solitary in the dead of night.

8. Comic-Con

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.

Amy and Tom

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.

comic con

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.

7. Charity
 
In 2010, Tom devoted a good part of his free time to many worthwhile causes:

Tom started the year by making a very gracious donation to the HP Alliance’s auction for relief in Haiti.

Guitar

As promised, Tom tweeted a picture of the guitar that he donated to the Harry Potter Alliance’s fundraiser.
Thanks to @r_p_f and Megan, we have this new photo of Tom posing with fans at the “Be a Gunner. Be a Runner.” charity event which took place earlier today to raise money for the Great Ormond Street Hospital.
 
Actor/director Noel Clarke posted this picture with Tom Felton and “Skins” actor Joe Dempsey. The three are working together to support the Robin Hood Tax, an idea proposed by a group of more than 300 economists and businessmen, where there would be a small tax on financial transactions that occur only between large institutions. There are estimates it could raise more than £250 to £450 billion a year worldwide. This money could then be used to help fight global climate change, world hunger, and more.
RHT4
Thanks to gracelightning56 for uploading the video of her trip to see Tom Felton and Devon Murray at the There with Care screening and VIP party for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1″ held in Colorado over the weekend. In the video, we see Tom and Devon attend an auction followed by an autograph signing.
At a recent screening of Tom’s latest Harry Potter adventure, there was shown beforehand the poignant documentary Zimbabwe’s Children. Watch as Tom humbly realizes that the life of millions of children such as those in the film is without hope of an education, decent jobs, or a rise out of poverty as he beseeches the audience to help these children receive an education and childhood of their own.
Taking a cue from Tom, Feltbeats.com also got into the fundraising action:
Feltbeats.com will be holding a Charity Fundraiser in celebration of  Tom Felton’s 10 years playing Slytherin Bad Boy Draco Malfoy. Over the next six months, we will be collecting donations for the newest charity near and dear to Tom’s heart. Inspired by the documentary, ”Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children”

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!

6 thoughts on “Feltbeats.com’s 2010 Year In Review

  1. 2010 was an AMAZING year for Tom and I hope it continues for him this year and many years to come!

    Also, he deserved that win for best villain! I lost count of how many times I voted!!!

  2. I really, really enjoyed 2010, for from being a just regular poster, I’ve moved also to become a tweet, and met @meankittylover while visiting berlin last Summer.

    Thomas has grown even wiser during last year, by revealing how much he was as human as the rest of us, that he did some mistakes, and learnt from them.

    I’m posting here since early 2009, and yet, it feels as if it was yesterday I had just landed there.

    Glad I found Feltbeats. Glad I found you.

    With Love,

    Sam.

  3. I got great pleasure from reading these articles, look at the great victory of Tom in 2010 and is a very big success! I am certainly pleased that the new movies due out soon with Tom, such as “The Phenomenon”, “Phenomenon” and “White Other”. Another thing I most admire the fact that Tom won the award best villain in 2010 on MTV Avards! I am sincerely happy for you Tom.

    I like Feltbeats.com.

    With Love,

    Anya)***
