Deathly Hallows Filming Watch: Room of Requirement Still Underway

For the over 100,000 of us that follow actor Tom Felton on his official Twitter page, you might have seen a series of very interesting tweets of late as Tom is hard at work filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This filming is for the perilous Room of Requirement scenes involving his character Draco Malfoy at the end of the story and require a bit of flying and other stunt work from the actors in harnesses and such. Back on August 14 in all cap frustration, Tom wrote: "HARDEST DAY FILMING! followed by "I hate the harness!!! get me in a bath :(" Today, filming continued on these intense scenes, and in a series of updates we learned how painful these are: "back at work...harnessed up...still bruised from friday!!!...had lunch...fed and watered...getting harnessed up...got a gd team of stunt boys keeping me going & pushing me forward to get some gd takes!...never wanted to finish a days filming as early as when im doing stunts!!! ridiculously tired, hot and bothered!blisters on my hands :( bruising more and more in each take :( skins sore from the harness rubbing :( not so glamorous today...exhausted."

Hang in there Tom, we are all rooting for you! You can also see a relatively new photo of the actor on his official page here. Filming continues on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Leavesden Studios, England.

Oh my I guess filming isn’t as glamorous as we think, hopefully the scenes will turn out fantastic and it will all be worth it. I am so excited for DH!

Well, it can’t be all cotton candy and happy feet…but I’m sure it’ll be worth it in the end. So hopefully he hangs in there!

I am sure that it is very painful..riding on a broom take after take in a harness. According to Dan Radcliffe, it is. He has been saying that for a long time. Guess Tom should have asked him for some pointers.
