The Columbus Dispatch has released a new interview with Tom Felton in which he discusses his role in the new DirecTV series Full Circle. Tom plays Tim Abbott, a college student who is trying to convince Bridgette (Minka Kelly) to leave her husband. In the interview, Tom talks about his decision on whether to continue acting after the Potter series.
"Going back awhile, even to the fourth and fifth Potter films,” Felton said, “I don’t remember actively thinking, ‘I want to do this for the rest of my life.’ It was never something that I embraced and thought, ‘I really want to do this.'
"It was probably during the sixth film, when I was 18 or 19, that I had an appreciation for, A, how lucky I was and, B, for what I was doing. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the process.
“So I think after that is when I really started focusing on how I was going to be able to continue doing this.”
Tom also discusses the difference between his new series and the Potter films. Each episode of Full Circle takes place in a restaurant between two characters, with one of those characters (and the story) carrying on into the next episode.
"A project like Full Circle is really the complete opposite of Harry Potter, and, hopefully, it will further my options and keep other doors opening for me."
Full Circle starts this Wednesday on DirecTV. You can check out a behind-the-scenes video of Full Circle featuring Tom right here.
