Tom Felton, who was born in Epsom, England, kicked off his journey as a choir singer at the age of seven. The popularity in the neighborhood as a choir singer helped him to land a few commercials for companies like Commercial Union and Barclaycard. His first tryst with the small screen was a voice role in the television series ‘Bugs.’ In 1997, the young actor made his feature debut with ‘The Borrowers.’ He had to wait for nearly two years to land the next breakout role in the popular biographical drama ‘Anna and the King.’ Felton’s career turned on its head with the 2001 movie ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.’ Based on the cult fantasy novel series of the same name by JK Rowling, the movie launched the renowned ‘Harry Potter’ film franchise that consists of eight flicks.
Felton played the character of Draco Malfoy, one of the arch-rivals of Harry Potter and a staunch supporter of the Dark Lord, “He Who Must Not Be Named.” Directed by Chris Columbus, the movie features Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and Warwick Davis in lead roles alongside Felton. ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ went on to become a commercial and critical success and grossed nearly $1B from the international box office. The humongous success of the film elevated Felton’s career to new heights.
The second installment of the franchise, ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,’ released in 2002. Felton reprised his iconic role in the movie along with Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. Directed by Chris Columbus, the film repeated the box office and critical success of its predecessor. Felton’s performance as Draco Malfoy earned him a number of nominations and accolades. The movie also collected nearly $879M globally. The actor returned to play the young Malfoy in ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’ (2004), ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ (2005), ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I’ (2010), and ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II’ (2011). Felton earned widespread critical acclaim for immortalizing the character of Malfoy. In 2004, his fans launched the Official Tom Felton Fan Club.
Meanwhile, the actor also played another significant role in the 2012 movie ‘The Apparition.’ Directed by Todd Lincoln, the film became one of the major works of Felton outside the ‘Harry Potter’ universe. He played the character of a college student who, along with his two friends, finds himself at odds with an evil supernatural force after the tragic death of his friend. He appeared as a guest in the children’s TV show ‘Home Farm Twins.’ Films like ‘The Disappeared’ and ‘Risen,’ helped the budding actor show off his acting skills beyond Malfoy. The 2016 flick ‘Risen,’ a biblical drama film directed by Kevin Reynolds, starred Felton as a major character along with Joseph Fiennes, Peter Firth and Cliff Curtis. His other major works include ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ (2011), ‘Belle’ (2013), ‘Secret’ (2014) and ‘Against the Sun’ (2014), and ‘Feed’ (2017).
Felton has released three music videos through the YouTube channel ‘Feltbeats.’ He made them from fragments of popular original songs. Later, the actor re-recorded nine songs for his YouTube channel. Felton also recorded an album ‘In Good Hands’ with six songs — ‘If You Could Be Anywhere,’ ‘We Belong,’ ‘When Angels Come,’ ‘Convinced,’ ‘Father of Mine,’ and ‘If That’s Alright with You.’ The album and the tracks garnered positive reviews upon release.
