    • (comparing his hobby of fishing with acting)
      Tom: Patience is required heavily in fishing and much the same with the film set. Obviously, some days it doesn't go as fast as you would have hoped or you would have expected. But it's all about keeping the energy and keeping the - not only patience - but just to enjoy every minute of it. Because sometimes it can be quite easy to sort of slump back if you have an hour or two to wait and it's important to make the most of the time with the cast and crew while you're still there.

    • (his thoughts on completing the "Harry Potter" series of films)
      Tom: And I suppose it's going to be like graduating from school, or something like that, when you leave people you've learned to love and respect. This was a first job for everyone! So the thought of leaving Hogwarts and doing something else is both scary and exciting. It will be a mix of emotions on the last day, I think…

    • Tom: I really tried out for the part of Harry Potter, but they ended up picking me for the part of the enemy of Harry. Actually it is really fun playing the bad kid because it just has so many interesting qualities to it. And Daniel Radcliffe and I get along really well off set so it's really fun filming.

    • Tom: James Bond isn't too far. Anything like XXX. I'd like to do a film where you can drive fast cars and shoot a lot of guns off of random places and have three or four ladies chasing you all at the same time!

    • Tom: I like me Italian girls; half Halle Berry, half Penelope Cruz sort of thing!

    • Tom: (On his girlfriend Melissa, in 2006) We've been friends for eight years, probably going out for two years. She's a regular, everday person. Nothing special I'm afraid... but to me she is!

    • Tom: Well, my closest friends are still the ones that I went to school with, but it's nice to go to work, at the studios, and have people there that you're willing to talk to and have a good conversation with.

  • Not a bad American accent

    My husband and I find ourselves noticing how British actors attempt American accents. They seem to drop the pitch of their speaking voices. They also seem, with every spoken syllable, to breathe out heavily rather excessively, like they're trying to say uhhhh. Tom doesn't do that. Yay!! We catch very little British in his American. This is a compliment! He does American so much better than most British actors. And who doesn't let his/her native accent slip occasionally while faking another.moreless
  • Draco
