Career

Felton began acting in commercials by winning a role in a coveted advertising campaign; he won the role over 400 young actors.[8] Another commercial role brought Felton to New York City's Times Square to shoot a production for an American company named Commercial Union.[9] Later Felton did a series for Barclaycard.[1] In 1995, he performed the voice of James in the television series Bugs and landed his first feature film role in 1997 when he played the part of Peagreen Clock in Peter Hewitt's film The Borrowers.[3][10] Felton played witness Thomas Ingham opposite Clive Owen in Second Sight in 1999.[3][6] Felton's role of Louis Leonowens in the film Anna and the King, starring alongside Jodie Foster, was also filmed in 1999.[1] Felton made an appearance in the episode 'Hide and Seek' of Second Sight 2 followed in 2000.[11] The Guildford Cathedral Choir also offered him a position.[7]


2000-present
By the fall of 2001, he had become known internationally for his portrayal of Draco Malfoy the bully, enemy, and foil of Harry Potter in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. As of 2007, Felton has appeared in all of the Harry Potter films. Before landing the part of Malfoy, Felton had auditioned to play Harry Potter and Ron Weasley. [12] Of the four young actors who succeeded in getting the main roles, Felton had the most extensive film experience. [13] Thereafter Felton's schedule began to fill with the work of filming the first four movies, premieres, contributing to articles and interviews, and receiving the Disney Channel's Kids Awards for Best DVD Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on September 22, 2003.[14] Felton started his Official Tom Felton Fan Club in 2004 and took part in autograph signing events.[15][16] His fan club was reported to have attracted so many fans that Felton had to put a temporary stop to people signing up to his fan club. [17] The autographing session in Germany drew people from Chile and one fan in Cologne summarised: "Tom is a real nice, professional young man, always happy, smiling, laughing, full of power-a real gentleman."[18] When the fan asked Felton what kids should do if someone like his character is bullying them, he said: "Tell someone. You don't want to keep it to yourself."[12]

After filming the fourth Harry Potter film, Felton made a guest appearance on Home Farm Twins in 2005, where he played Adam Baker in the short-lived series.[19] He attended Collectormania on April 30, 2005 [20][21] and London's world premiere for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.[22] On 11 November 2005, he and Rupert Grint presented Liz Carnell with The Daily Mirror's Pride of Britain Award for all of her work to raise awareness of the dangers of bullying.[23][24] Felton worked on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix throughout 2006. Now having read more of the Harry Potter books, Felton reflects: "I have had input into Draco. If they give me a line and I don't think it is something he would say, I suggest changing it. They do listen to you and you do feel a part of it."[13]

In July 2007, Felton visited Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado in a pre-screening charitable event of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.[25] He was also present at Leicester Square for the premiere of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on 3 July 2007.[26][27]

There are penciled-in plans for him to reprise the role of Draco Malfoy through Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, though no official contract.[4] When asked whether he was looking forward to playing a good guy in the future he answered: "No. Well, I don't know. I suppose for now I'm happy with sticking to what he is. But after the Potter legacy is over I look forward to playing a good guy or someone different anyway, someone not so spiteful."[28]


Personal life and interests
In 2003, Felton and his brother Chris worked with Joe Babbitt, the St. Lawrence County Angler's Association, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Region 6, the Chamber of Commerce, and a diverse group of other organisations to form the World Junior Carp Tournament,[28][29] which involves competitive fishing for children ages 11 through 18 in a family-friendly environment.[30]

Felton's favourite hobby is fishing and Felton plans to pursue fishery studies at college in Southampton. [28][31] Apart from fishing, Felton also enjoys other sports, such as basketball, football, roller skating and ice-skating.[19] He said during an interview, "I am generally more and more in my comfort zone in the wild. The only time I can really relax is up a tree or somewhere outside. I love being outside." [28] His ideal place for a holiday is the United States of America. [31] More specifically, in an interview, he said he liked to go to the St. Lawrence River in New York. [28] His favourite villain in movies is Alan Rickman in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,[31] who stars in the Harry Potter film series as Severus Snape. He said during an interview that his favourite characters in Harry Potter are Gilderoy Lockhart[12] and Lucius Malfoy, Draco's dad.[28] Felton said that if he could play another character in the film, he would play Lucius Malfoy, or even Voldemort. When asked which house in Hogwarts he would like to stay in, Felton said it would probably be Slytherin.


The Sun (London) reported that Felton is distantly related to several participants of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 including defence witness Lt. Nathaniel Felton, and John Proctor, a victim of the hunt.[32
