Harry Potter star Tom Felton's evil ways continue

I used to get emails saying my character was going to be an alien or a transvestite pole-dancer.

Tom Felton was kept in the dark about his character

It's been more than three years since Tom Felton played the villainous Draco Malfoy in the final Harry Potter film, but whilst he may have hung up his Slytherin robes, he definitely hasn't abandoned his evil ways!

Tom is currently starring as a calculating, ruthless Silicon Valley billionaire in new US crime drama Murder In The First.

And he says there were huge differences in working on a TV show to a blockbuster film.

"It was very enjoyable doing eight pages a day rather than an eighth of a page so there was a lot less waiting around.

"The whole catering budget on Harry Potter probably cost the same as this."

Tom also revealed he took a leap of faith with the new role as he given very little information about the part and the producers would only let him see the one pilot episode.

"Naturally I wanted to know how the character progresses and what happen but they refused to give us any information. The cast would try and get together each morning to put together our own theories about what was going to happen and who was guilty."
