Tom Felton’s Most Surprising ‘Harry Potter’ Memories Feature Gary Oldman

tom felton has dedicated a large part of his newly published memoirs, Beyond the Wand: The Magic and Chaos of Growing Up as a Wizard, during his time as Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter Series. Covering the franchise’s leading trio—Daniel Radcliffe, emma watson, and Rupert Grint— was adamant, which is what makes Felton’s insights into supporting players most insightful.

In the book, Felton writes that Ralph Fiennes had a “weighty presence” on set. Alan Rickman “was a man with a brilliantly dry sense of humour,” who once not-so-jokingly said, “Don’t step on my bloody cloak.” And Robbie Coltrane, who died last week at the age of 72, “had a good one dose [his character] Hagrid in him: the tall, friendly giant who never lost sight of what’s important in life.”

But a sizeable swath of Beyond the Wand is dedicated to gary oldman, who played Potter’s godfather Sirius Black Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011).

Their momentum began unpredictably when Felton mistaken Oldman, now an Oscar winner, for a member of the production’s caretaker team. “One day I was on set when I saw another slightly unkempt older guy wearing a pair of old jeans and a t-shirt,” Felton writes, Insider reports. “I had seen him occasionally and thought he was one of the cleaners. What can I say? He just had that look.”

When they later met in the hair and makeup departments, Felton writes that Oldman “seemed to show family and friends around.” He recalls thinking, “I had this horrible feeling that I might have made a faux pas, so when someone left, I asked, ‘Who is that?'” Realizing his mistake, Felton writes : “I winced with embarrassment…I wanted to apologize – not that he really gave it a monkey wrench – but I ended up taking the easier route by completely ignoring my mistake and pretending I had all the time.” knew who he was.” He continues, “In my defense, for such a big star, he wasn’t starry at all. He was humble and down to earth, you could see him making a cup of tea for everyone rather than playing the room.”

Over the course of his time in the franchise, Felton writes that Oldman’s bond with Radcliffe grew stronger. “Just as Sirius became a father figure to Harry, I felt that Gary became a kind of inspiration for Daniel, helping him navigate the difficult path of growing up in the spotlight and honing his acting skills,” he recalls . admitting to being “a little jealous of this bond”. Adds Felton, “We could see that, thanks in part to Gary’s influence, Dan was really learning the craft better than any of us. Who better to have on your side in that regard than Gary Oldman?” Tom Felton’s Most Surprising ‘Harry Potter’ Memories Feature Gary Oldman
