Tom Felton is loving his new tan.
The 23-year-old British actor sat down with The Daily Mail to chat about losing some of his childhood to Harry Potter, finding love on the set and being terrified by Alan Rickman. Check out some some highlights:
– “I think everyone is expecting the Harry Potter cast to break down as it comes to its end. I know Daniel and Rupert had a bit of a cry when it was their last day and the crew screened a showreel of the past ten years. But I feel a real Âmixture of emotions. There is a little bit of sadness, but at the same time there is excitement.”
– “One thing that people keep on saying to me is that the wealth and the fame must have made up for missing out on my childhood, but the idea of money â€” putting a price on your childhood â€” is ridiculous. You will never get those years back and you canâ€™t put a price on them. And to me, fame is not a positive thing. The idea of being famous is a lot better than the reality. Itâ€™s fantastic when you go to premieres and people cheer you, but itâ€™s not real. And itâ€™s totally not my approach to get my name on a club door just because I can.”
– “I remember my first scene with Alan Rickman and I was anxious because he is a slight ‘method’ actor; as soon as he is in his cloak, he walks and talks like Snape â€” it is quite terrifying. But I really wanted to talk to him because Robin Hood was one of my favourite films. After I plucked up the courage, we chatted for about half an hour, and he told me where he got his inspiration from and how he thinks of approaching his lines. It is fascinating for a young actor to be able to talk to your heroes like that. It is priceless.”
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I opens November 19th! Pictures below also include from the set of his album shoot and on the set of his new film, From The Rough.
