Actor Tom Felton has given a new interview where he discusses the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Noting he has not yet begun filming his role as Draco Malfoy for the final two installments in the Harry Potter series, Tom said: “I can’t wait for the next one, it’s very exciting. I’ve been up to
where the film is shot a couple of times and it’s ready to go. I
haven’t started yet so can’t give anything away!”

He also goes on to say how much he is looking forward again to working with actor Jason Isaacs, who memorably portrays Death Eater Lucius Malfoy and the father of Draco. Tom Felton is complimentary of the work Jason does on set, stating: “Lucius is an evil son of a gun and Jason is very good at turning that on when he’s talking to you normally, it’s scary.” He continued

“I haven’t seen him for a couple of years but he’s a great guy and he is a bit of a dad. I look up to him a lot when we’re filming, he’s a
good role model to have on the set to follow in his footsteps.”

UPDATE: Thanks to Tom Felton himself as he let it be known via his official public Twitter that there was new video of him at the event speaking on Harry Potter here via Digital Spy

I sense an acting Bromance brewing... Of course they've not started working yet but it's REALLY nice that we're getting these little bits.
