Tom Felton has claimed that appearing on Jack Osbourne: Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie changed his life.
The Harry Potter actor said his most adventurous activity prior to the show included “walking through the park with a dog” and “going for a jog”.
Felton participates in ostrich racing, swimming with sharks and bungee jumping on the ITV2 reality programme.
“It’s shown me what I’m capable of,” he told Digital Spy. “It’s definitely changed my life.
“Saying that, I haven’t booked my next free fall out of a jet plane just yet.”
Speaking about the show’s host, Felton commented: “He was great, so many people have asked me about Jack, I think people expect him to be a bit wild. A bit of a loose canon. But he’s really down to earth.
“He’s a gentleman beyond gentleman. He looked after us massively while we were out there. I can’t say enough nice things about him.”
When asked whether he would be performing his own stunts on the Harry Potter set in the future, he joked: “My licence to thrill! The producers probably won’t want me to do that no matter how much I’m game for it.”
Jack Osbourne: Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie airs on ITV2 on Wednesday at 9pm.
This is just a reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday, Nov. 12) at 3 PM US-Central (9 PM GMT), Feltbeats.com will be hosting a Viewing Party for Tom’s episode of “Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie.”
As many of us are outside the UK and will not be able to watch the episode live, we will all meet in the FeltChat room and attempt to watch it live via screen sharing (a British FeltFan – we love you Becka! FA rep! – will show her screen on a streaming service so we can all watch). The quality won’t be perfect, but, barring any technical difficulties, we should at least be able to watch it live, and make fun of Tom all together in the chat room. (Just kidding, of course, we would never do that, really!) It will be great fun!
Additionally, we hope to have video and screenshots of the episode posted soon after it airs, for those of you who miss the live showing. So, check back with us for more info!
There is a new interview with Tom over at www.digitalspy.com about his upcoming appearance on “Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie.”
Harry Potter star Tom Felton has spoken out about his experiences of ostrich racing.
The 21-year-old said the exercise, which was one of his challenges on Jack Osbourne: Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie, was the “most bizarre” moment of his life.
“I won’t lie, it should come across incredibly funny on TV,” Felton told DS. “It was hysterical for us at the time. It was the most bizarre experience of my life.
“I’m not sure if you’ve ever come in contact with such a bird, but it’s a creature of gargantuan size.”
He continued: “I was terrified. I was petrified of the bloody things. Their heads rest about two foot above yours and they have huge toes with massive nails on the end. They always told me, ‘If you hit the floor then run for your life’.
“It was the most strange experience of my life.”
The actor, who plays Draco Malfoy in the wizard franchise, also participated in plane gliding, bungee jumping, sky diving and swam with great white sharks on the show.
Felton appears on Jack Osbourne: Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie on ITV2 on Wednesday at 9pm.
