Why Harry Potter’s Tom Felton Was ‘Jealous’ Of Daniel Radcliffe’s Relationship With Gary Oldman While Filming


While Daniel Radcliffe, Tom Felton, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and the other kids of the Harry Potter movies led the series, they were supported by some of the greatest actors of all time. From the late Robbie Coltrane to Ralph Fiennes, Maggie Smith and Helena Bonham Carter, the list of prestigious and phenomenal actors the young stars worked with is endless. However, one of the actors Radcliffe and the other younger stars really adored was Gary Oldman, who played Sirius Black, and Felton has revealed that he and some of the cast were jealous of the bond between Radcliffe and Oldman. 

In his new memoir, Beyond the Wand: The Magic and Mayhem of Growing Up a Wizard, Felton dives into his life before, after and during the franchise that changed it. He gets candid about addiction and going to rehab, as well as his relationships with his costars. In an excerpt from his book (via Insider), he wrote about what it was like when Oldman came onto the set, and how he and the others were a bit “jealous” of the relationship between the Harry Potter and Sirius Black actors. He said: 

Just as Sirius became a father figure to Harry, I had the sense that Gary became something of an inspiration for Daniel, helping him to navigate the tricky path of growing up in the spotlight as well as hone his acting skills…They seemed to me to share a very similar sense of humor and approach to the other cast and crew. I think some of us — myself included — were a bit jealous of that bond…We could see that, in part thanks to Gary’s influence, Dan was really starting to learn the craft better than any of us. Who better to have on your side in that respect than Gary Oldman?
