Tom Felton discusses “Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie” ostrich horror

There is a new interview with Tom over at 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.

  1. I had an encounter with an ostritch but luckily there was a pane of glass between us and the Ostritches.
    It happened in Israel we were on a coach in a wildlife park and the ostritches came and put their heads through the top sliding windows and we were told not to touch them as they do bite but they are inquisitive
    and like Tom said they are huge insize and understandably scarey and they are fast runners. Well done Tom.

  2. I live right across the street from ostriches. They are werid looking. And mean as hell! Seriously, those things look at you like they want to kill you!
