HARRY POTTER Bad Boy Tom Felton Wants to Do a Musical on Broadway or in the West End

In an interview with BuzzFeed, Tom Felton (Harry Potter, Murder in the First) revealed he has his sights set on the stage.

When asked if he'd like to join fellow Harry Potter alumni Daniel Radcliffe (The Cripple of Inishmaan) and Rupert Grint (It's Only a Play) on Broadway, Felton said: "I've been to see them both in the last year or so doing their shows and they're fantastic at it. Daniel especially, I think he revels in the work, the fact that it's every night and he gets to explore the character every night, and he's been doing that for quite a while."

Felton continued: "For me, it's tough commitment-wise, because you have to commit for such a long time...But yes, it's definitely a dream of mine to be on Broadway and the West End as well. Hopefully when the right opportunity comes, I'll jump at the chance."

As far as which show, Felton said: "I was in love with Blood Brothers, a famous Willy Russell musical that I thoroughly enjoyed, Jersey Boys, a lot of musicals."

Felton is currently starring in the TV series Murder in the First and will next be seen on the big screen in Ghosts of the Pacific and Fangs of War. He recently appeared in Belle, In Secret, From the Rough, The Apparition, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and, of course, as 'Draco Malfoy' in the Harry Potter franchise.
