Exclusive: Feltbeats.com 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

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!

A brief synopsis from all of the above courtesy of the Daily Record:

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg were hilarious as they dangled above the stage then presented the Best Villain award to Tom Felton for his role as Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter.

While Tom was on vacation in Las Vegas last week, he had the opportunity to join in on the premiere of Get Him to the Greek, a film starring Jonah Hill and Russell Brand. Tom had a small cameo in the film that he discussed over blackjack with Ben Lyons of E! Online.

In the interview, Tom discussed doing the scariness of improvisation, how he would like to continue doing comedy after finishing with Potter, and the “wittier than most” Harry Potter jokes he had thrown at him by Jonah Hill.

Tom Felton discusses his wand and using it on the competition in new MTV News Interview

Tom Felton discusses his wand and using it on the competition in new MTV News Interview

Tom had a chance today to talk via phone with MTV News about his first ever Movie Award nomination as Best Villain in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Last summer, at the New York premiere for “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince,” Tom Felton — the Brit actor behind platinum-blond baddie Draco Malfoy — walked us through the key characteristics of a great onscreen villain.

“Cold eyes, I’ve been told. A pretty pasty face,” he said. “I think to be evil you need an iconic look. Like a James Bond villain, with the scar or a cat.”

The guy certainly knows what he’s talking about. On Wednesday morning (May 12), Felton was nominated for Best Villain at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. Back in South London while finishing up the shoot for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” Felton gave MTV News a call to talk about his nomination and take stock of the competition.

“It’s a massive honor,” he said. “Especially given that it’s a fan vote. That makes it quite touching. And it’s classic for me, because for almost a decade, kids have been running onto set and hugging Daniel [Radcliffe] and shaking Emma [Watson]‘s hand. I try and be as polite as I can, and I never seem to get anywhere with them. Finally, I’m in a category that celebrates that fact!”

Come the June 6 awards show, Felton will face off in the Best Villain category against Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”), Helena Bonham Carter (“Alice in Wonderland”), Ken Jeong (“The Hangover”) and Stephen Lang (“Avatar”). Obviously, the key question is: Which of these nefarious characters would win in a fight?

Lang’s scar-faced, alien-slaying boss in “Avatar” might prove to be a bit of a challenge for the supernatural-assisted Draco, but Felton isn’t too worried. “If he had one of those big suits on he had on at the end, I’m not sure I’d stand a chance,” he said, before deciding, “But I have got the wand always, and the broomstick is pretty nimble.”

The wand is exactly what Draco would need against Waltz’s cold-blooded, Jew-hunting Nazi — a performance Felton dubbed “the most spine-chilling of the year.” “He may talk a good talk, but against a decent spell or two, I might be able to take him,” Felton laughed.

And then there’s Helena Bonham Carter, his “Harry Potter” co-star and now his MTV Movie Awards adversary. “Never my competition — she’s my idol,” Felton said. “I’ve learned more off her than anyone else.” Sure you don’t want to talk a little smack? “Of course! I’m putting a friendly face on it, but on the night, it’s all game,” Felton said. “Each dog for his own.”

Lastly, there is Jeong’s naked, tire-iron-swinging mob boss. Can a wizard take him down? And would Draco ever strip it all off to prove he’s the best villain on the big screen? Turns out, that almost happened during “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”

“In the fourth film, I got turned into a ferret,” he said. “In the original script, it says that in the transition back from ferret to human, I was going to be naked, and I was going to have to run through the courtyard with about 60 extras and 50 film crew and run out with my cheeks on show. For some reason, they pulled that at the last minute. I don’t know why. Maybe they thought it was too explicit for young viewers. Maybe something about not having a wide-angle lens!”

Well played, sir. Any final words — a get-out-the-vote message for fans? “After 10 years, to still be in the public’s hearts, it really means a lot,” he said. “I can speak for Daniel and Emma and the rest of the cast on that one. I’d love to see some awards being handed out to ‘Harry Potter’ stars on the night.”

Tom Felton Is Not In The News, But Really, He Is.

Tom Felton Is Not In The News, But Really, He Is.

While it seems all has been quiet on the Tom Felton front lately, my email alerts tell me otherwise. It started last week when an article on character names appeared in the Guardian. I found it funny, you found it funny, and even Tom found it funny enough to tweet about it. After all, tweeting does kill… time. x

What’s in a name? A lot, when it comes to fantasy

I don’t warm to most of the goodies’ sweater-vested names (Ronald, George, Neville), and some of the onomastic determinism meted out to evil-doers is a bit heavy-handed (poor old Draco Malfoy never stood a chance). But I do like the dog Latin spells, and places such as the Room of Requirement.

A week later, the Guardian used the same photo of Tom, and his evil git of a character Draco Malfoy, as a pop culture reference once again, this time in comparison to David Cameron, a Tory leader in UK politics. After calling chief secretary to the Treasury, Liam Byrne, Baldemort, journalist Nicholas Watt couldn’t help but point out Cameron’s similarity to our favorite Slytherin, Draco Malfoy.

But perhaps the greatest threat to Cameron is that he, too, has his own Harry Potter character, according to Labour sources. Step forward Draco Malfoy, the snotty bully who does dirty deeds on behalf of the character whose name must never be mentioned. “Posh and nasty,” went the cry from Labour yesterday.

While the Guardian has taken to using Tom as a reference in their articles, other sources want to know why he’s not mentioned more often. Remember when Ashley Greene talked to MTV about her conversation with Tom concerning the Harry Potter vs. Twilight fandom? It seems ClevverTV did.

 

In a continuation of this same interview with MTV, Ashley kept the mystery behind the film secret by giving the shortest summary possible. However, MTV Movie Blogs was not satisfied, and turned the short article on Ashley into a conspiracy theory on Tom’s character, and his role in the movie.

What’s interesting to me here is that Greene doesn’t mention Felton. He’s got top billing in the movie, along with Greene and Stan. Could this be yet another sign that Felton is playing the villain? He previously told MTV that this role is “a real step outside what I’m used to.”

He then went on to describe his character. “As far as my character goes, obviously he’s not an evil, jealous wizard. He’s a college student, a very intelligent, confident young man who’s really excited about what he’s getting himself into. At the same time, he has no idea what he’s getting himself into. This character has such a wide range in one movie. He starts off as a real go-getter, and as the story goes on, you really see him turn.”

So Greene and Stan are being haunted by some supernatural force and Felton is a guy who “has no idea what he’s getting himself into” until he starts to “turn.” Does he become possessed? Is he a scientist/aspiring scientist who discovers away to tap into supernatural forces? We’ll have to wait and see. But there are plenty of puzzle pieces to shift around on the board.

What exactly is the story behind Tom’s character in The Apparition? What are your theories? While we all ponder those, let’s watch this short video of Tom from the Remember Me premiere. Team Edward for the win, Tom? You don’t say!
