As we reported here, Tom Felton will star in the world premiere of Gareth Farr’s A Child of Science from 5th June – 6th July 2024.

Bristol Old Vic has now released the poster for the play and a behind the camera video at the photoshoot for “A Child of Science” with the cast.

Tom Felton stars as medical maverick Robert Edwards

In 1978, Patrick Steptoe, Robert Edwards, and Jean Purdy changed the world as we know it – and most people don’t even know their names.
Bruntwood Prize-winning writer Gareth Farr’s brilliant new play tells their pioneering story, and those of the army of women from all over the UK whose immense bravery helped them achieve the impossible – to create human life in vitro.
Faced with fierce criticism and hostility, and hounded by the media for “playing God”, trials were kept largely under wraps. But their determination to give hope to the thousands of families struggling to conceive eventually led to one of the most remarkable medical breakthroughs of our time: the birth of a baby girl and the creation of IVF, a procedure which has supported the birth of over 12 million babies worldwide over the last 45 years.
Directed by the highly acclaimed West End director Matthew Dunster (Hangmen, 2:22 A Ghost Story, Shirley Valentine) and starring Tom Felton (Harry Potter), Jamie Glover (Waterloo Road, Casualty), Meg Bellamy (The Crown), Adelle Leonce (Fool Me Once, Black Mirror), Sonoya Mizuno (House of the Dragon), and more, A Child of Science is about determination, dreams, hope, and courage. It’s a celebration of life.

Tom Felton in 1883 Magazine

Last month the 1883 Magazine published an interview with Tom Felton.
They also uploaded photos from a new photoshoot by Arved Colin-Smith.

Even though it’s been 20 years since audiences first saw Tom Felton in Harry Potter and the bleach blonde locks he donned as he came of age have long gone, he doesn’t mind still being called Draco now and then.

It’s hard to imagine being on the cusp of teenagehood and getting cast in a role that would inevitably follow you for the rest of your life. It’s a decision not many 12-year-olds have ever had to make. But for Tom Felton, the luck of being cast as the blonde villain Draco Malfoy is not lost on him, nor does he buckle at the weight of the fans’ feverish passion and love for the character and the franchise. Instead, it’s something he embraces; warmly reminiscing about his coming of age as a teen wizard and the impact it’s had both on himself and his fans. It’s why he’s put pen to paper and written Beyond The Wand, a memoir of anecdotes, tales, and magical memories from his life at Hogwarts.
If you’re unfamiliar with Felton’s work post-Potter, let us catch you up to speed. Outside of his acting credits, which consist of roles on The Flash, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and countless others, recently Felton has been leaning into new adventures that he describes as “slightly terrifying” but ones that need to be explored. This year alone he made his West End debut in 2:22: A Ghost Story, portrayed Guy Fawkes in an interactive theatre experience in London’s The Gunpowder Plot, to writing and, eventually releasing, his aforementioned memoir. All three are brand new experiences for Felton, speaking to the love he has for his craft and his dedication to continuously push his comfort levels. 
At his core, Felton is a lover of the arts. Outside of the Potter hysteria and booking acting gigs, he began writing and recording songs. It was the first outlet he had that wasn’t about portraying someone else. It was always just for him. Now, after several EPs and singles, he’s dedicating himself to what fans have been asking for since his first body of work in 2008: live shows and a full-length record. Like with everything that Felton has touched prior, it’s inevitably going to be good. 
1883 Magazine’s Kelsey Barnes chats with Tom Felton about making his West End debut in 2:22: A Ghost Story, why he doesn’t mind being asked about Harry Potter 20 years later, his upcoming memoir, and more.
