Tom Felton's memoir, Beyond the Wand: The Magic and Chaos of Growing Up as a Wizard, was released this week. In the book, the actor writes about his experience as Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films and details what his life has been like since he hung the Hogwarts robe on a coat rack in his closet.
How he became an actor, his first film role, and how his career developed after Harry Potter
1. Felton said he became an actor because his "mom had a piece of glass in her leg"
Felton said that he often jumped from interest to interest as a child and was ready to give up acting when his drama mentor told his mother that she should take him to London to find an agent. At that time, Tom's mother had recently undergone surgery to remove a piece of glass that had hit her leg, and she had free time. She agreed to take her son to London, where he got an agent.
A few weeks later, Felton landed his first commercial role, playing a child on a cross-country trip with his grandfather.
While filming in Times Square, Felton noticed a group of people cheering for him. He suggested that their cheers were because they thought he was famous. “It turns out that with my angelic face, beanie and down jacket, they mistook me for Macaulay Culkin in the stage image from Home Alone, or maybe for his little brother.”
2. Felton said he first learned about the Harry Potter books at school
“One day [the teacher] picked out some book about a wizard boy living under the stairs,” he wrote. “In truth, it wouldn’t matter much what he read, I would have the same reaction, namely: rest, buddy! Wizard boy? I'm not interested." By the time his agent asked him to audition for the first film, Felton said he had little memory of the books.
“I think I was probably the only kid in the entire audition who had no idea what [books] were or how much they meant to people,” he wrote. "I have, of course, long since forgotten those afternoon tales of the wizard boy."
During one audition, all the actors stayed in the room to chat with each other while the filmmakers watched their reactions. Felton wrote that when a "young curious girl" approached him to ask what an overhead microphone was, he "probably chuckled a bit". It turns out that the young girl was Emma Watson, who later played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films.
3. After several auditions, Felton said he "began to think it might be cool to play this Harry Potter kid."
Weeks went by in silence. While on a family camping trip in France, Felton's mother showed him a newspaper article stating that casting for the film had been completed and he said he "felt a twinge of disappointment". The filmmakers later approached him to play Draco Malfoy, whom he called "the bad guy".
"While I like to think that Draco and I aren't exactly alike, there was definitely something about my general nonchalance that stood out."
4. At the first script reading for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Felton said he thought he was "too cool for school."
He added that while he was surrounded by "famous actors" from the upcoming franchise, he didn't know who many of them were. However, there was one exception: he knew Alan Rickman from his role as Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves. "Being in the same room as the sheriff himself was enough to dampen even my high school sass," he wrote.
5. In the book, Felton talked about working with Rickman, who played Severus Snape in the films.
He said that Rickman can be quite intimidating on set. “Although I had spent years filming with him by this point, I still treated the man with caution,” he wrote. Felton recalled that Rickman insisted that Snape wear "extremely long, flowing robes." During the filming of one scene, Felton said that he accidentally stepped on the hem of Rickman's long coat the entire time. In response, Rickman allegedly turned around and said, "Don't step on my fucking cape."
Despite this, Felton said that Rickman was "far from the terrifying figure that I've always imagined him to be."
Felton also noted that Rickman was incredibly generous and said he frequented children's charities. “If anyone knew what a kid wanted from a trip to the Harry Potter set, it was him,” Felton wrote.
6. Felton said bleaching his hair for the role of Draco was "agony"
Even before he landed the role of Draco, Felton said he was asked to bleach his hair so the filmmakers could see how Draco's signature style looked on him. He said the process "initially took six or seven rounds" and felt like "fire ants were gnawing at [his] scalp". Throughout the filming of the series, Felton said that he had his roots dyed about every nine days.
7. At the premiere of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Felton said that a small child approached him and called him a "real bastard"
Although he [Felton] said he was shocked at first, his grandfather supported him, noting that "it's good ... if a 5-year-old child has such an internal reaction to my performance, it means that I must have done something right".
As he got used to playing Draco, Felton realized "it's important not to mess up the magic" and would often play along with the fans, although he sometimes came across as rude in the game.
"There's some satisfaction in the fact that my performance crystallized people's idea of the character, even if it meant they sometimes mistook fantasy for reality."
8 Draco's personality also infiltrated Felton's real life
Felton said he still attended regular school when he wasn't filming. “With my bleached hair and regular absence from class, being Draco was not cool…” he wrote. He recalled that he was "overcompensating" and frequently skipped classes.
9. Although Felton said he and Emma Watson are now close friends, the couple's relationship "didn't get off to a great start"
Watson was 9 years old when the first film was made, and Felton was 12. Felton recalled that Watson invited him to a dance performance she planned in her dressing room, where he and his friends on set "laughed" at her. Watson was "visibly upset by our ill-considered reaction".
Felton said he soon realized that being on set was different for Watson. She was a few years younger than most of her co-stars, she was one of the few girls who had to deal with their "boyish humor" and was "never allowed a normal childhood".
Years later, Lisa Tomblin, who was in charge of hair in several Harry Potter films, told Felton that Watson, who was 12 at the time, was in love with him.
10. Tom Felton said that having so many young actors on set often led to cuts being cut during filming.
“It’s enough for someone to say the wrong thing or grab your attention in a certain way, and no matter how harsh words you hear or how many legendary actors you work with, it’s almost impossible not to break out into fits of laughter every time the cameras start rolling. on you,” he wrote.
To combat these disruptions, director Chris Columbus allegedly instituted a "red card" system. Every time someone "broken a double" they were given a red card, which meant they had to donate ten pounds. At the end of filming, all the money raised went to charity. Felton said that Rupert Grint was "one of the worst offenders". "I believe he put in over $2,500 in the first two films alone, that's how strong his inability to control himself was when it came to laughs."
11. Felton said that while he and Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter, "at first kept their distance," they soon realized they were very similar and became friends when they started making later films.
"I would say that Harry and Draco are two sides of the same coin and I see myself and Daniel alike," Felton wrote. He also noted that Radcliffe was under tremendous pressure playing the title role. "After all, he was the Boy-Who-Lived, but he was also the boy who would never live a normal life."
Felton said he admired how Radcliffe wanted to learn about his craft and become a better actor during the series' run. “I have learned more from watching him and playing with him than any adult,” he wrote. In fact, Felton has said that he owes much of Draco's character development in later films to what he learned from watching Radcliffe.
12. Various members of Felton's family accompanied him on set during filming.
Felton's grandfather was his escort during the filming of the first two films. When Chris Columbus met his grandfather, he told him that he "looks like a wizard" and asked if he would like a cameo role in the film, to which he agreed.
By the time filming began on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Felton's brother, Chris, was his chaperone on set. Felton said that while it was a fun experience, Chris was "pretty comfortable being the worst chaperone in the history of filmmaking." He added that "Chris also 'purchased' random mementos from the set."
In general, according to Felton, Chris was not the only thief. On-set theft was so common that later films featured spontaneous vehicle checks to make sure workers weren't stealing important props.
13. Felton thought about working with Robbie Coltrane, who played Hagrid in the films.
He said that Coltrane "was a prankster, but he was also ... a person who let jokes be played on him and his reaction was priceless." Felton said that Coltrane actually reminded him a lot of his character, Hagrid, "a big, friendly giant who never lost sight of what was important in life."
14. Felton said that his "Malfoy family has become almost as close as my Muggle family", and even said that he calls Jason Isaacs, who played Draco's father, Lucius, dad
Felton wrote that Jason switched from his real personality to that of Lucius Malfoy surprisingly quickly. "Even now I get goosebumps when I remember Jason's transformation."
Felton also detailed his experience working with Helen McCrory, who played Narcissa, Draco's mother. “I learned that she was good-natured at heart,” he wrote. "I soon felt comfortable enough to ask her all sorts of questions about life, love, and everything in between, and she always took time for advice, never speaking down to me."
15. During filming for the series wrapped in December 2010, Felton said he "made a huge effort to keep his emotions in check," but shared that by the time he got to his car, he was already sobbing.
“We spent half our lives thinking there was no end in sight, but it quickly crept up on all of us,” he wrote. Felton also noted that he became close not only to his fellow actors, but also to many members of the crew. “It was a melancholic thought, the realization that I would not be seeing many of these people as regularly or ever again, not because I felt like it, but because of the demands of life.”
16. After Harry Potter ended, Felton was approached to star in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
This was the first time he was given a role without an audition. When that ended, he said that he was considering retiring from acting. “Had I been left to my own devices, this could well have been my last film,” he wrote. “I lacked the drive to assert myself and fulfill the potential that Jason [Isaacs] and others have said I demonstrated by the end of Project Potter. His then-girlfriend Jade, whom he met when she was a stunt coordinator on Harry Potter, helped him audition for new roles. Eventually Felton realized that life in Los Angeles was not for him. "There's no doubt that Los Angeles made me feel especially lonely and out of touch with myself."
Felton said that he began to spend a lot of time in the Los Angeles dive bar Barney's Beanery, where he could only feel normal. "When I was in my thirties, I spent more hours and more nights at Barney's than I care to remember," he wrote. He said that he began to drink more often. "It got to the point where I didn't think about anything but drinking, even while I was at work."
17 Felton Claimed He Was Even Taken To Rehab For Treatment
He wrote that he escaped after 48 hours and ended up at Barney again. After escaping, Felton said he realized he was "lost and needs to find his way again." He broke up with Jade and went to a second rehab. "The few weeks I spent reconnecting with myself were some of the best and most important of my life, although I certainly didn't appreciate it at the time."
18. Felton wrote that he never re-read the Harry Potter books or watched the films.
“I am saving them for the moment I most look forward to in my future,” he wrote. "I once shared these stories - first books, then movies - with my little Muggles."
