Tom Felton: Hello Brian.

Brian Dowling: How are you?

TF: I’m very well, thank you for having me.

BD: Is it true that you originally auditioned for the role of Harry in the Harry Potter movies?

TF: Yes, I mean…

BD: That is true?

TF: It is true, it is true. This is going back nine years now or something, back when we were just children so to speak. So yeah, we did a few for Harry and then a few for Ron as well.

BD: Oh really?

TF: Yeah. (laughs) They dyed my hair ginger and brown.

BD: You liar, did they?

TF: I’m no liar, I got, I got a fair uh, I got a fair digging at school for that.

BD: What’s it like being ginger?

TF: (Laughs) Ginger for a day! It was an experience.

BD: Ginger for a day.

TF: It was an experience, I recommend it to any one.

BD: What about being brunette, what about being brunette for a day?

TF: It’s not so bad, not so bad.

BD: Is being blond better?

TF: I dunno, I’m willing to say blonds have more fun but uh…

BD: Do they?

TF: I’ve been blond for the last seven years, so it’s hard to say, really.

BD: And, tell us about “The Half Blood Prince” movie, what can we expect?

TF: A lot, a lot, I mean obviously I’m restricted, I haven’t seen much, I limit myself to how much I actually watch whilst we’re shooting it. It was an seven month shoot and I was there throughout, and for what I’ve seen and done, it’s gunna be a… it’s gunna be an epic film.

BD: Now you’re also taking part in Jack Osbourne’s show, Adrenaline Junkie, this Wednesday.

TF: Yes, yes.

BD: Now I’ve actually seen the show, that’s how important I am.

TF: I’m very excited.

BD: You’ve not seen it yet.

TF: I’ve not seen any of it, no.

BD: Now can I say, you’re on up with Wendi Peters from Corrie and Gemma Atkinson.

TF: Correct.

BD: Did you enjoy it, ’cause you do some pretty… weird, crazy stuff.

TF: I know, yeah. Truth be told, I’m not an adrenaline junkie by birth right, so this was uh, a totally new experience for me so, I’m kinda glad that I pushed myself to do what I did, ’cause there’s no other way I would have ever done it otherwise.

BD: What I find quite weird, obviously having watched you in the movies, was you swearing.

TF: Uh yeah, yeah.

BD: You swearing, I was like “Oh, you shouldn’t say that!”

TF: Ohh!

BD: “Oh, he’s gunna get done for that!” And you did swear quite a lot!

TF: Do I really? Oh God! My mum’s already warned me! My gramps is gunna be watching, he’s gunna be holding his head!

  1. Hey i listened to it and I am not sure if heard right but at the end I think something was said about him being back next week perhaps someone could tell me if I am right or wrong.

    • The interviewer, Brian, was just filling in for the main host. So Brian was asking that if he filled in again, would Tom join him? I think it was just a formality, however. πŸ™‚

  2. lol, it’s funny when he says that he doesn’t want people to watch his show because he’ll be embarrassed! πŸ˜†
    He’s sounds so cute when he laughs πŸ™‚
