Tom Felton gives JJJ the scoop on his film Against the Sun in this brand new interview!
The 27-year-old Harry Potter alum stars as one of three US Navy airmen during World War II who crash land their torpedo bomber in the South Pacific and find themselves on a tiny life raft, surrounded by open ocean.
No food. No water. No hope of rescue. Against incredible odds, these three virtual strangers must survive storms, sharks, starvation – and each other – as they try to sail more than a thousand miles to safety.
Against the Sun is now in theaters! Tom also dishes on being starstruck, his biggest fears, and Harry Potter fans. Check it:
JustJaredJr.com: Hi Tom! So what made you want to get involved in this film? What was the biggest challenge for you?
Tom Felton: I remember sitting down with Brian [Falk] our fearless director about the film and he did lots of research aabout the era and what these boys would have gone through day-to-day, and he mentioned a diet and how intense it was going to be. I sort of shrugged it off. “Yeah, yeah yeah,” not thinking much of it. But then we got down there, I wasn’t very educated when it comes to food and calories, and actually how much 600 calories a day actually was. I would have broccoli, half a chicken breast, and one slice of bread a day. It was very restricting. I managed to do it.

Once a Slytherin, always a Slytherin
Tom Felton has done it — he’s joined Pottermore and while being sorted into his house, got the shock of his life — he’s not a Slytherin!
“Today was the day. I finally did it. I joined Pottermore and was sorted into……..Gryffindor,” the 27-year-old actor wrote on Twitter. “Heart broken x #slytherinforlife.”
Tom, who starred as Draco Malfoy in the movie franchise, got a response from author JK Rowling about the sorting hat’s powers.
“I could’ve told you that years ago. I just didn’t want to spoil your motivation ;)” she replied to him.
TELL JJJ: What house have you been sorted into?

The 27-year-old actor recently played the most epic prank ever on his Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint.
According to Page Six, Tom dressed up in disguise as a fan named “Bob” and waited outside the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in New York City where Rupert is appearing in Broadway’s “It’s Only a Play.” He then proceeded to bug him for an autograph! LOL!
“The pair have a long history of playing pranks on each other on the set and off. Eventually Tom revealed himself to Rupert. It was hilarious,” a source told the paper.
Tom later confirmed the prank, tweeting a link to the story with, “Bob Schmitd made it!”
