Tom Felton Signs With Gersh (Exclusive)
The boy who played Draco is now filming the crucifixion drama 'Clavius'
Tom Felton has signed with Gersh, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.
The English actor won two MTV Movie Awards and one Teen Choice Award for tormenting Harry Potter throughout the blockbuster wizard franchise. In 2011, the same year he played Draco Malfoy for the final time, he co-starred as a cruel primate shelter guard in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
At last year’s Toronto Film Festival, Felton came of age in two period romances – In Secret (then called Therese), where he held up the losing end of a love triangle with Elizabeth Olsen and Oscar Isaac in 1860s Paris, and Belle, opposite Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s mixed-race 18th century English lady.
Felton recently completed drama Against the Sun (also known as Ghosts of the Pacific); he, Garret Dillahunt and Love & Mercy’s Jake Abel star as three U.S. Navy flyers stranded on a life raft in the South Pacific in 1942. Felton will play the trio’s bombardier, Tony Pastula, in the true World War II story, which producers The American Film Co. are eyeing for a 2015 Sundance Film Festival premiere.
Felton is now filming the indie drama Clavius, in which he stars opposite Joseph Fiennes in a story that explores what happened when Christ’s body went missing after he was crucified. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves director Kevin Reynolds is helming the pic, which is produced by Mickey Liddell (who also produced Felton’s In Secret).
This summer Felton was a series regular on the first season of TNT’s Murder in the First, playing a Silicon Valley prodigy at the center of two homicide investigations. His other recent small-screen appearances include Scott Free-produced period miniseries Labyrinth, which also starred John Hurt and Sebastian Stan and aired on The CW in May, and the Neil LaBute-penned DirecTV ensemble drama Full Circle.
Felton continues to be repped by Management 360.
