Thomas Andrew Felton, or more commonly
known as just 'Tom,' has been acting since the young age of eight. A friend of his parents suggested that he get into acting,
as she noticed potential - and so he did. He first starred in a commercial, then leading on to such roles as James in Bugs
(TV Series), Peagreen Clock in the Borrowers (1997), Thomas in Second Sight (TV Series), Louis Leonowens in Anna and the King
(1999); Second Sight II - again as Thomas; finally onto Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movie series. He is currently in
another TV Series, called Home Farm Twins, as Adam Baker. (2004-)
Tom is delaying his going off to college due to the
4th movie, where he hopes to study in Fishing Management. Tom fishes quite a bit, and enjoys doing so - he uses the catch
and release system so that fish may be released without harm. The biggest fish he has caught weighed in at 16.88 kilos. It
is said that he got into fishing due to one of his brothers.
Aside from his dabbling in sports, Tom enjoys singing
and is talented at it. He has been singing since the tender age of seven, where he first began in a church choir. Since then
he has been in several other choirs, and was offered to sing in the Guildford Cathedral Choir.
Tom states that he
is just another normal kid, and that he is nothing like the character of Draco Malfoy. (I hope not!)

- Personal quotes
"In spite of what Draco is like I really like school and I miss it a lot when I'm filming. I've a fair idea
what I want to do for my GCSEs - I will definitely be doing music."
"I really tried out for the part of Harry Potter, but they ended up picking me for the part of the enemy of
Harry. Actually it is really fun playing the bad kid because it just has so many interesting qualities to it. And Daniel Radcliffe
and I get along really well off set so it's really fun filming."
[on playing a bad guy in Harry Potter's film] "I think it's more fun, there are a lot of goodies in the film
and not a lot of baddies, so I like to be in the baddie group."
So those of you that think filming is all glamour, your're so wrong!! Really only the Premieres are the glitzy
- Where are they now
(July 2003) Filming the third Harry Potter Film: The Prisoner of Azkaban
(April 2004) Filming "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" as Draco Malfoy
- As you see Toms Biographies are both shorter than any other actor in Harry Potter. Tom likes being a normal kid and
to my discontempt, he will probably not be in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix because of that. He likes peice and
quiet and doesnt like having security guards, police, stalkers, etc. He doesnt plan on being an actor al his life, he
doesnt see it as a proffesion for him. He wants to go to college and study fishing management.

to be treated as a normal person who goes to school, watches the Simpsons, plays basketball, fishes (a lot!) and chills out
with my friends. Sorry I can't give out my mobile number or e mail address but if I responded to you all, I'd be on the phone
I'm taking my GCSE's this summer
and because of the 4th film, I'm delaying going to college until 2005 where I hope to go and study Fishery Management. I only
fish for carp using the catch and release system so that the fish are never hurt. My biggest fish was a common carp caught
on the beautiful river of St Lawrence in Waddington in New York State, USA. last year and it weighed 16.88 kilos."
