Tom Felton: I Still Embrace 'Harry Potter' In Many Ways

Posted: Updated:

Tom Felton has moved on to another phase of his successful movie career.  He co-stars with Jessica Lange and Elizabeth Olsen in the new period drama, "In Secret."

But just because he's moved on doesn't mean he's tired of talking about the Harry Potter series.  In fact, he says he embraces the memories, "with every morsel of me."

The rest of the movies' stars apparently share Tom's point-of-view.  "It's not something we're trying to shake off or move away from.  I think all the cast are proud of our ten years, eleven years on the job."

And, Tom is quick to add, if not for the Harry Potter movies he might never have met his girlfriend, Jade Olivia.  "We met on the third film, I believe, and I plucked up the courage by the fifth film to say hello to her."

Tom joins Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge on Good Day L.A.
