Tom Felton discusses his “significant others” – Family, friends, Timber and Jade

In a touching interview which ran today in the Times Online (which ran in the magazine included with the newspaper – if someone can scan it for us, that would be great!), Tom discusses the people who are closest to him in his life: His family, his friends, Timber and Jade.

Tom also reveals that he and Jade just celebrated their big 21-month anniversary- Congrats, guys! (I’m being slightly sarcastic here; They already know they are geeks for celebrating EVERY MONTH! Haha! Too cute. 😉 )

Thanks Eugexo_CO for letting us know about this adorable interview!

My mum

In no way was she one of those mothers pushing me to act. In fact, I don’t think she wanted me to become an actor at all, which makes the sacrifices she made to get me here even more amazing.

I have been acting since I was 9, but at that age you can’t go up to London on your own or agree to anything independently, so she was always with me. At one point I got a part that required filming in Malaysia for four months, so she had to give up her job to come with me. It didn’t mean anything to me at the time, but I hope that in years to come I can repay her.

My one and only girlfriend

Jade is my soulmate and I get on with her better than anyone else. We fell in love on the set of Half-Blood Prince [she was the stunt co-ordinator’s assistant] and have just celebrated our 21-month anniversary. I sent her a box of goodies at work: Elemis skin products, Molton Brown bath stuff and other things she likes, which is always a winner. I have quite an extensive knowledge of beauty products now.

My brothers

There are four of us: Ashley lives in Australia, Jonathan in London, and Chris lives with me. I was the runt of the litter, so I never got to sit on the couch or watch any of the TV programmes I liked. Now our relationship is high on banter, although the times when we are together are few and far between.

My dog

I have had Timber, my Chesapeake Bay retriever, for three years. I try to be strict with her, but Jade spoils her rotten. My mum never let us have a dog when we were younger – which, in hindsight, I don’t blame her for – but the first thing I did when I got a house was buy a puppy.

My inspirational director

David Yates [who directed the past three Harry Potter films] has this beautiful calmness and clarity about what he wants. I had no confidence in my ability to be an actor for the rest of my life, but he embedded a passion for film in me.

My best friends

Everyone used to ask me what my friends thought of Harry Potter and I always felt I had to say they loved it, but I can finally admit that they didn’t have any interest in it whatsoever. But that worked really well for me because, when we met, I could forget about what I do and just be normal.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is now out on DVD from Warner Home Video, priced £24.99

  1. Actually in Ecuador, couples also celebrate the monthly anniversary of their relationship, how long they’ve been together, according to my sister friend. From what I learnt, it’s normal to let your circle of friends know where you’re at. No wonder then that Thomas wanted to share it with us…

    With Love,
