Tom Felton Appears on ITV's "That Sunday Night Show" to Talk About Robin Hood Tax

Felton Interviews

Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) appeared on ITV's "That Sunday Night Show" this evening to discuss the Robin Hood Tax, a campaign for a tax of around 0.05% on the financial sector. The campaign claims such a tax could raise at least £20 billion a year in the UK alone. Felton previously appeared in an advert for the campaign and Bill Nighy (Rufus Scrimgeour) has also starred in one of the campaign videos.

Felton speaks briefly about reliving his "lost childhood" having finished Harry Potter by rediscovering skiing and other activities he wasn't allowed to do while he was working on the Harry Potter films.

A YouTube user kindly captured Felton's appearance alongside Janet Street-Porter, Russell Kane, The Apprentice's Lord Alan Sugar and presenter Adrian Chiles, and you can watch it embedded below or here on the YouTube website:

Hey, upstair! That’s is pretty mean in my perspective. They are actors, and if they make people think they are bad, that means they’ve done a great job.

I totally agree with Gene Lin above me. If you don’t like him because of Malfoy it shows how good he is in bringing out the real stuff.

Great short interview! Tom comes across as bright, funny, and thoroughly likeable (imo). Thanks to ‘dannyradcliffe06uk’ (if you’re reading), the fan who captured this and posted on YouTube!

Good for him! Wealthy people need to speak out in favor of this movement. I wish we had something like this here in the US, but I fear that it will never happen. Americans seem more comfortable with the government having the right to take their lives away through capital punishment than with it having the right to take a few bucks out of their pockets to even out the toxic maldistribution of wealth. So the big corporations and the CEOs will continue to make their obscene profits and bonuses as they rape the environment, and the gap between rich and poor will continue to expand. It’s crazy and it’s depressing.

I really like Tom Felton, even if he plays Malfoy. He’s perfect for the role you know, I actually like characters like him. I’m glad he stood up for himself.

Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, cmon people! Tom looked damn good here. Hope this Robin Hood Tax theory pans out, now it just sounds like a theory, I know nothing of economics but all sounds just too easy and convenient to be true

I think he’s doing well and making a name for himself, which is good when you’ve been in a series for 7 movies, soon to be 8, and it’s hard to see him as anything other than Draco Malfoy. I love Tom and I can’t wait to see what he does out of Harry Potter!!

I think Tom Felton is a great person as well as actor. He played a great Malfoy. Most times when you can make people dislike you due to the character you play then you’re playing the role very well. I wish him lots of success. I agree that the Robin Hood tax should extend also to the oil companies. Have you seen the price of gas lately?

Tom did an amazing job with the interview! Hope we see him in something in the future (film wise so it will play on this side of the pond).
