Tom talks to Yahoo!TV about his role in ‘Full Circle’, and talks about his pet peeves about dining in a restaurant.
“I think a restaurant is a perfect setting for this dissection of human interactions as going out to eat is something most of us do quite regularly and it is a weird mix of a private and public experience,” explained Tom Felton (“Harry Potter” films), who kicked off the Neil LaBute-created series as Tim, a Brit whose fallen in love while studying in America and possibly impregnated the wife (Minka Kelly, “Friday Night Lights”) of his host (Julian McMahon, “Nip/Tuck”) who may also be his father. “We go to a restaurant and every group of people is having their own private conversations and experiences and yet we are all keenly aware that we are surrounded by other people. If one of those conversations gets heated and someone starts screaming at a level that suddenly involves the room as in my first episode, what does everyone else do? I just think it is a very interesting concept to play with.“
As the setting and story line had everyone thinking about modern-day dining etiquette and technology’s role in it, like whether it is rude to text at the table, we asked the cast to share their food-related pet peeves and restaurant no-no’s.
Tom Felton: “It used to be people leaving their phones on the table, but I’m not too fussed about that anymore. That’s part of modern-day living, I suppose. The thing that bothers me most now is something my mum is a big offender of. She likes to finish the main course, take a 15-minute break, order some dessert, then another 15-minute break, and then she’ll order a cup of tea, wait around some more, and finally ask for the check. Me — as soon as I put my fork down from the main course, I’m pretty much ready to go. I cannot handle an hour of lounging around after dinner. I can do that on a special occasion, but generally I like to go in, get it down me, and then skedaddle back home. I know that’s horribly unromantic and unsophisticated.“
Photographed by George Harvey, Tom is featured in the newest issue of Rollacoaster Magazine. I’ve added the scan & an outtake of the photoshoot from the issue to the gallery.
“I was told by a few people that had we had shot Potter in the United States, it would have been a slightly different story,” he says. “I was blessed with three older brothers who, you know, treated me like the runt of the pack. They didn’t give me any special treatment. It kept my feet on the ground.”

Tom talks to iamRogue.com about his role in DirectTV’s Full Circle, read the interview below.
iamROGUE - Actor Tom Felton practically grew up in front of a camera!
Felton first appeared in the film Anna and the Kind with Academy Award-winner Jodie Foster, but it was his role as Draco Malfoy in all eight Harry Potter films that made him an international star. Since the Potter series ended, he has portrayed several different types of roles in films like Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and The Apparition, and shows no signs of being pigeon holed into one specific type of role. His latest project is a TV series called Full Circle, which premieres on DIRECTV October 9th, and was written and created by director and playwright Neil LaBute(Death at a Funeral).
The project is quite unique in that each episode takes place at a restaurant and only features two actors at a table talking. Each following episode will include one of the actors from the previous episode, and also introduce a new character. Felton appears in the first and final episodes as Tim Abbott, a British student studying in the U.S. who has had an affair with Bridgette Murphy, the trophy wife (Minka Kelly) of a family friend (JulianMcMahon) he has been living with. The first episode features Tim confessing his love to Bridgette, only for her to admit that she has made a mistake and is staying with her husband.
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Tom Felton about his work on Full Circle. The popular actor discussed his new project, why he wanted to be a part of it, reciting Neil LaBute’s words, why the series is like shooting a play, working with MinkaKelly, the difficulties of creating a full character arc in only two episodes, DirectTV, how television is changing, and finding good roles in his post-Harry Potter career.
Here is what Tom Felton had to say about Full Circle:
IAR: To begin with, Full Circle is a very unusual TV project. Were you sold on doing it once they told you that Neil LaBute created the series?
Tom Felton: I’m glad someone asked that because that’s pretty much how it was. I had said to people for years that I’d love to do some really high quality TV and my agent brought me this and said, “You’re doing it.” But as soon as I heard that Neil actually wrote it I was pretty keen. In fact, after reading the first few pages I really kind of got to see the quality of it. You don’t want to be going into something like this where the dialogue is not first class and I think this is about as good as it gets, so that really lends itself well when you’re doing something like this.
Tom talks to Collider.com about his role in DirectTV’s Full Circle, read the interview below.
Collider – The DirecTV 10-episode drama series Full Circle marks the television debut of award-winning screenwriter and playwright Neil LaBute, with two half-hour episodes airing every Wednesday. Examining the human condition and relationships through a series of conversations between 11 people whose lives are intertwined, each episode takes place in a restaurant and features a conversation between two characters, with one of the character’s storylines then carrying over into the next episode.
The first episode of the series features Tim (Tom Felton), an exchange student from England, and his love interest, the unhappily married Bridgette (Minka Kelly), who Tim pleads with to run away with him. While at the show’s press day, actor Tom Felton spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about what attracted him to this project, how intimidating it was to take on so much dialogue in such a short amount of time, establishing an entire relationship in a half-hour episode, and working with Minka Kelly. He also talked about his new TNT drama series Murder in the First, as well as what’s it like to forever be a part of the Harry Potter franchise. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
Collider: How did this come about for you? Did you hear that Neil LaBute was doing a TV, and then you said, “Sign me up!”?
TOM FELTON: Pretty much! I was working in Mexico, not far from Tijuana, doing a film down there, and they called up to say, “There’s a 10-episode thing with Neil LaBute. It’s two episodes for each character. And they want you to be in the first and the last one.” I was already pretty signed up, before I’d even read a page. Obviously, when I read Neil’s writing and saw the cast that was being attached to it, it was a no-brainer for me. Even though I was pretty nervous about it and slightly anxious about this kind of project, because it’s worlds away from anything I had done previously, I was excited to give it a go.
I’ve added the HQ scans of Tom from the newest issue of ‘Bello‘ Magazine and thanks to Mila, I also have added other set portraits of ‘Therese‘ cast from TIFF 2013 to the gallery. Enjoy!

TheWrap – The actor discusses the role on the Neil LaBute series and his career after playing Draco Malfoy
“Harry Potter” actor Tom Felton stars on the premiere episode of playwright Neil LaBute’s DirecTV series, “Full Circle.”
For the role, the 26-year-old and co-star Minka Kelly had to shoot their half-hour episode together in one 14-hour day, which proved challenging for the movie star.
“Contrasting to the days of ‘Harry Potter’ — we’d get 30 seconds done in an entire day — it was new to me and a challenge,” Felton told TheWrap and other reporters at press event for the DirecTV drama.
“I was pretty nervous when we started to see if we’d hit the ground running or if whether it would take a long time to go,” he continued. “Without question, it was the most intense day of my life. Emotions were coming out when I didn’t want them to or need them to but ultimately it helped in the performance. No one really had a chance to stop and get their phones out or go make a cup of coffee. It was just back-to-back and off we go.”
CraveOnline - DirecTV’s new original series has a creative way to land an A-list cast. “Full Circle” features a new couple every week having dinner and discussing a different, though connected, dramatic issue. The actors sort of hand off to one another as well.
In the premiere episode of “Full Circle, Tom Felton stars as Tim, a man who begs his lover, Bridgette (as played by Minka Kelly) to leave her husband for him. In the next episode, Bridgette dines with her husband, Stanley (Julian McMahon). Felton will return as Tim in the final episode of the series. At a publicity event in Los Angeles, we got to sit down with Felton one on one to talk about the new series, his next TV gig for TNT, and his movies in the Harry Potter series and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
CraveOnline: Between “Full Circle” and “Murder in the First” have you wanted television after your career in film?
Tom Felton: Yes and no. TV has come leaps and bounds since I started watching television, especially in the last five years. Bryan Cranston, Damian Lewis, these are all actors now that I think are the cream of the crop, the A-listers of their industry. If I could follow in their footsteps, I’d be very lucky and happy to do so. I think just because the quality has gotten so good and so engrossing that any actor would give their left arm for a chance to play some of the roles that are coming out now.
Now that you’ve done “Full Circle” and the “Murder in the First” pilot, how has television met or exceeded your expectations?
To be fair, “Full Circle” being the most unique, it’s hilarious how contrasting it is in regards to the Harry Potter script is 110 pages give or take, and it would take six to seven months to do principal photography. There would be days where you would literally shoot nothing.
