As we reported earlier, Feltbeats.com had the pleasure of interviewing Tom Felton at this past weekends MegaCon in Orlando Florida. At the request of some of our followers, here is a transcript of Feltbeats Admin Southernbets sit down with Tom. Enjoy!!!
Tom: Here I am with the Feltbeats Ladies, for the first time in 4 years, very excited. The initial group that started the Feltforce, or Draco Con, or whatever else it does
Betsy: Jason said that if we have a Draco Con he was going to attend and photo bomb everybody
Tom: He would, yeah he would
Betsy: So, you know, I’m going to look into that, cause, you know
Tom: Do so
Betsy: So we just have a few questions. You’re so busy this coming year with movies coming out. We know that Risen’s already come out, I wanted to ask you first of all, you got to work with Joseph Fiennes, on Risen
Tom: what a hunk, what a hunk
Betsy: Isn’t he? How different was it working with him than working with his brother Ralph Fiennes?
Tom: Well Ralph was always in Voldemort outfit, so it was pretty terrifying to be around. Joseph’s a bit younger, I think he’s the youngest of the bunch.
(Betsy starts fixing his hair, lol)
Tom: Sorry, sort it out. Oh Crikey! But a lot of fun. He’s a mega professional actor and a really nice guy. He has a beautiful family, really like led the way for us. Made the job very easy for me
Betsy: The scenery on that film is amazing, beautiful
Tom: Yeah, Malta and Spain. It was bloody hot
Betsy: Oh was it?
Betsy: Hotter than here?
Tom: Yes it was, in Roman armour
Betsy: So Sheep and Wolves, you get to be the voice of an animated character. Is that the first time you did animated character voices other than for the park.
Tom: Yeah I think it is. I’ve done it for theme parks, video games, the narration for the studio tour, but I’ve never done, never got to be a main character before, it was a lot of fun
Betsy: Did you like it?
Tom: I got to be a wolf and a sheep in a really good story so it’s quite cool. I haven’t seen it yet so I don’t know what it looks like
Betsy: Very cool. When you do that, your like by yourself in a booth, watching it and reading right?
Tom: yeah, yeah, yeah. This ones different because usually the actors do their bit and then they put the animation around it, but in this one, the animation was already made. It was about fitting words to the characters. It was a bit different
Betsy: Did you find it a more difficult
Tom: It was challenging, yeah. We were supposed to do it in two days and we ended up taking three
(Betsy tells Tom to stop messing with his hair)
Tom: Cut it off, it’s getting too long! I know, I’m not cutting it
Betsy: You do! It’s terrible!
Tom: My hair’s terrible, I love her!
Betsy: just do it that way, go this way
Betsy: So in Stratton, which I’m really excited about because Tyler Hoechlin’s in that one too
Tom: He’s a good looking chap isn’t he
Betsy: I know, he dies in it though (spoiler). So are you the bad guy, you’re the villain right?
Tom: What, no
Betsy: Are you sure, or are you lying? Totes lying. He’s always the bad guy
Tom: no I’m not, there’s several bad guys in it
Betsy: Can you count the number of movies your not the bad guy in it, let’s count. In Sheep and Wolves are you the bad wolf. Do you eat the sheep?
Tom: No, I’m the hero!
Tom: I’m the humble hero
Betsy: Well there’s one
Tom There’s one. Stratton, I’m more or less a good guy
Betsy: Your such a liar lol
Betsy: So, you play an 18 year old twin with Troian in Feed
Tom: I was like do I? Oh yeah, oh yeah. You know more about my business than I do
Betsy: How the heck, how the heck are you first of all playing an 18 year old still?
Tom: I don’t know, Getting away with it aren’t I. Shaving twice a day when I’m doing that
Betsy: It also talks about how they have a very strange unusual relationship. Are we talking Flowers In The Attic strange?
Tom: What’s that?
Betsy: I told you he would not get that!
Tom: I don’t get that reference
Betsy: there’s way too much going on between the brother and sister
Tom: It’s odd, I haven’t seen it so I don’t know what’s in it, but I know the director saw a test screening of it yesterday, or two days ago and said it’s disturbing. It’s a disturbing film and it addresses, sorry I did that again, really quite, what’s the word, not dangerous issues, but ones that really haven’t been attacked before so I think people were upset by it
Betsy: so it’s going to be pretty controversial
Tom: It is I think, I think it is. It’s an odd one but I’m really really proud, without seeing it, really proud of the work. Troian is amazing, and Tommy the director was so much fun, and yeah I’m brilliant in it.
Betsy: Yes! But are you the bad guy?
Tom: No, no I’m not the bad guy!
Tom: He’s not a good guy neither. He’s just a character
Betsy: I think you just really like it because it’s so different from you, because your just a really like cool fun guy.
Tom: Exactly, If I could play anything
Betsy: Like this is him normally, really cool
Tom: I’m jovial and idiotic, so to get to play someone so serious, that takes themselves seriously, it’s fun
Betsy: so we have just a couple of little fun ones
Tom: I love your fun ones
Betsy: So, your not going to know this which is terrible. In a battle between Batman and Superman vs Captain America and Iron man, because we are at MegaCon we have to have a comic book question
Tom: Are we?
Betsy: Who would win?
Tom: Why do you ask me this? I don’t know who any of those. I think it’s quite. Did you say Spiderman was one of them?
Betsy: No Spiderman is not
Tom: Spiderman would win
Betsy: Spiderman would win, oh my gosh
Tom: I’ll take Batman and Superman
Betsy: John Barrowman
Tom: John Barrowman
Betsy: John Barrowman
Tom: John Barrowman. Quick film it. Get him
Betsy: Say Jon Barrowman
Random guy opens door: Wow, bad place, Oh your already banged up
Betsy: yeah. So clearly, let me move forward a little
Tom: yeah yeah yeah
Betsy: I’m already broken
Betsy: so, and then, Christopher had this really good question, how do you eat your tacos? That is like legit food tacos
Tom: I don’t like tacos
Betsy: You don’t like tacos?
Tom: Wait, what’s the other type of tacos? Disgusting people, I love you. Ah no, I don’t eat tacos
Betsy: You don’t eat tacos?
Tom: Not really. You mean the hard ones, the crispy ones
Betsy: Crispy or soft
Tom: I don’t really eat them. Generally, how do I eat them is like this, side angle thing(demonstrates eating a taco)
Betsy: How do you live in LA and not eat them?
Betsy: But I mean like guacamole or cheese, or salsa
Tom: Oh no, plain
Betsy: Beef, chicken
Tom: Beef, chicken, that’s it, that’s it. Really boring I know
Betsy: Alright, what’s the best part about living in LA now
Tom: The weather, I love the ocean. The weather, the ocean, ah yeah those two are good. Everyday, so yeah I moved. I no longer live in uh, hello, I no longer live where I used to live. I live by the beach, I spend most of my time on the beach
Betsy: Are you learning to surf?
Tom: I’m learning to surf, I skateboard everywhere now, yeah a lot of fun
Betsy: awesome. Do you want to shoutout to some fans?
Tom: I would love to shoutout to all the Feltbeats Army and anyone remotely affiliated with this great organization. Excuse my um tardiness in not being around much recently. I’m back with a vengeance, stronger than ever, and yeah I want to thank you for all your support. It’s relentless. It never stops even when I don’t, I’m not there to receive it, it seems to constantly be pulled out of me. So thank you, here’s to a kick ass year, love you girls, keep up the good work
