Tom Felton Going Back to Leavesden Studios to Do Reshoots

LA Times HeroComplex blog is reporting that Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) will be returning to Leavesden Studios to do a single day of reshoots:

“I got the call today’ Felton said Tuesday. “I have to go back for one
more day of reshoots. So I’m going back in a couple weeks to do,
literally, one more day.”

The “Harry Potter” co-star, who has spent nearly half his life in the role of Draco Malfoy, said he will return to the blond-and-sneering persona for a single day of reshoots for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ” Part 2′ the
eighth and final film in the franchise. That film is due in theaters
next summer; the final day of principal photography was last June and
post-production is well underway. But at last week’s New York premiere
of the seventh film there was considerable chatter about the three main
stars ” Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint ’ having been notified that they need to come back to Leavesden Film Studios just
outside London for a bit more time in front of the camera. Now Felton
is another Hogwarts student going back to wizarding school for a bit of
post-graduate work.

“I knew that Dan, Rupert and Emma were called in and I was enjoying that, I was joking that, ˜Oh, I got it on the first take so
I don’t need any of that, going back to do it again.’ And here I am
eating my own words and going back to redo it. They just want to get a
couple of extra camera shots. I don’t think anything was done wrong,
they just want to cover it more. It could literally be a case of panning
the shot five degrees to the left or whatever just to make sure the CGI
shot work. So I’m going to go and serve my duty.”

Avatar ImageCeltise says: His poor hair having to go back to that horrid blonde. Wonder what they'll do with Emma's!Avatar ImageMissHermione says: Maybe shell wear a wig...And im surprised all his hair hasnt fallen out from being bleached so much!Avatar Imageaval says: “I knew that Dan, Rupert and Emma were called in and I was enjoying that, I was joking that, ‘Oh, I got it on the first take so I don’t need any of that, going back to do it again.’ And here I am eating my own words LOLAvatar Imageholey_saint_george says: Hmm.. yes.. I wonder what they will do with Emma!Avatar ImagePensievePerson says: this would be weird with emma. the very first shots fake teeth...the very last, a wig???!!!! Ah! Avatar ImageJenniferMalfoy says: I wonder if, since they'll have to give her a wig, if maybe they would give him a wig also? Instead of having to re-do it when it's almost finally all grown out? Oh well. I'm sure that we'll find out soon enough. I'm hoping that maybe, just maybe, by them re-shooting this scene that a little more will be added in to give even more of a sense of closure. After all, a lot of people have grown up with them. It definitely needs a proper send off. Avatar ImageLiderc says: She wears a wig in the scene when it was originally shot anyways, so wearing a wig again shouldn't change anything.Avatar ImageScottMan says: Heh. I could almost hear the twisting of the arm in Felton's voice. :) Regarding his hair, I think he's mentioned before when it gets too damaged from the dye, he just shaves it off after the movie's done, and grows back more healthy hair.Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: haha that Tom :DAvatar Imageazaadpotter says: Great that they get to meet once again. Tom has to get blonde hair again. I'm wondering what they'll do to Emma's hair. they better get it properlyAvatar ImageSindi says: Its nice to know they are paying for much attention to the film.. having to do a retake to get a couple different angels is more work, and looks like they are happy to do it :D Avatar Imagekatielilly says: I'm happy that they are trying to get everything just right. After all, it is the last scene of the entire franchise so it has to be perfect! But I feel bad for the actors. They've already that it is all over and have said their goodbyes and come to terms with the fact that it is the end. And now they have to go back for just a few days. It kind of diminishes that finality of it. Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: coolAvatar Imageeccentricalice says: Ah, just when they've all said goodbye, they're going back! Well, I guess I'm glad that they are coming back to make the film just that bit better. Avatar Imageshi suisen says: I'm anticipating Part 2 =) This will be the final movie and the fans(and me of course =P) will be expecting it to be perfect... well, as perfect as it can be~Avatar Imageashim_gryffindor says: Well... it should be better i guess. I'd really like to hear what they would do with Emma's hair. A wig wouldn't be as beautiful as her hair, but, I'm sure we wont really notice, i mean, emma's acting is excellent so...Avatar Imageginlu says: Hmm.. I wonder if Bonnie will have to go back to.Avatar Imagebudgie says: I like that they are being particular. I am ready to see the part 2 anytime.Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: lol, poor tom thought he was free :PAvatar ImageSilvery Doe says: Isn't that gong to look odd though? No way they can get the make-up and hair just the same as the last time, especially with Emma and her new pixie cut. You're going to be able to tell the difference I'm sure and it'll look worse than leaving it the it is. Gosh, I really hope they don't mess this up! Avatar ImageSohumdore says: They might use the wig as part of her 'older' person because I heard that they are reshooting the Epilogue: 19 Years Later. Avatar Imageeloise.woo says: haha yeah i wonder what theyll do to emma's hair x x Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: I love the fact that they want to get it right. Emma wore a wig for the original Epilogue filming so they'll probably just use it again.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: I'm glad they are thinking of making it better!Avatar ImageI am totally awesome says: so are they reshooting the nineteen years later part then?? i hope the reshot part turns out awesome along with the entire movie!!!!!!! I AM SOOO INSANELY EXCITED!!!!! plus im going to leaky con with one of my good friends!!!! Avatar ImageMaryMalfoy says: I'm hoping they go for bleaching his hair again. A wig cannot compare to the beauty that is the Draco Malfoy hair. Avatar Imagecasino en ligne says: This is the original hero. Draco could be good, if not for his parents. And the actor is brilliant!Avatar Imagecasino en ligne says: Wonderful!Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: WOW, I had never thought about that until now!!! but to make it look right, Draco will have to have it bleached again I suppose!!!! As far as Emma goes, it will be I think simple for them to find a wig of her hair coloring I am sure!!! and it will be definately worth it if it will make the Movie more detailed or if it includes now something that was left out!!!! I wonder maybe there is a sort of spray that can be used to make Draco's hair appear Platinum blonde!!!! it's possible!!!!Avatar Imageboros1124 says: Hi everyone! Now launched a brand new Harry Potter website. Rare books may be taken with them. Szia mindenkinek! Most indult egy vadonat új Harry Potter honlap. Ritka könyveket is meg lehet venni náluk.Avatar ImageAveryfan says: What if after 19 years Draco decided to cut off all his hair and Hermione's the one that's blonde?Avatar ImageFresca says: I sure hope he does not have to redye his hair! Maybe they can use a wig, or change his hair colour on the computer... At least he gets back to Leavesden one more time!Avatar ImageBless_the_children says: Well, they knew they really weren't "done" yet - there will be more photo shoots, more interviews, and more TV spots as they near the second movie. Then there will be awards ceremonies (Oscars, etc). Plus, reshoots are really common. Many of the cast and crew will be gone I'm sure, so it won't be the same as if they were all really back together again. But yeah, this is probably a bit of a strain for them, especially with Emma being in school, but she's probably back in England for the holiday break soon anyway.Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: What to do with emma's hair?? ...and,and poor tom's HAIR!!Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: What to do with emma's hair?? ...and,and poor tom's HAIR!!Avatar Imagespelljinxcursehexcharm says: It must be so annoying, finally finishing and saying goodbye then having to do it all over again.Avatar Imagemagichik says: His hair is more blonde in the movie than in real life.Avatar Imageblessi says: Yehey! Atleast it's still goes on. Right?? It was nice. We can still see the trio and our dear Tom. You can do it guys. You can do it EmmaAvatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Poor Tom having to dye his hair all over again! Seriously i'm surpised that his hair hasn't been falling off due to all the dyeing. Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Crazy. It's like, they've already said goodbye and made peace with leaving ... and now they have to go back. Wow.Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Must be weird to go back after thinking it's over - probably a strange feelingAvatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Must be weird to go back after thinking it's over - probably a strange feeling
