Harry Potter star Tom Felton is and probably always will be, best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies but he is dead set on continuing to get big movie roles. Tom stars in the Planet of the Apes prequel, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and gets to utter the infamous Charlton Heston line “Get your hands off me you damn dirty ape”.
Felton took the time to discuss the movie a little, he explained, “The film is a very different and fresh look at the Planet of the Apes franchise. It’s a prequel; it gives an understanding of how everything happens. It’s really sort of a frank story where you have scientists testing various different trials on apes.”
He added, “There’s one particular ape [in whom the test] causes high intelligence; it increases his knowledge very, very quickly. This particular ape, Caesar, is in the facility where I work and I’m supposed to look after all the apes. But my character is a real piece of work. He actually makes Draco look very soft.”
It was recently revealed that Tom Felton

on his forthcoming music project. Felton can be seen in Rise of the Planet of the Apes
, alongside James Franco
and Freida Pinto
, at cinemas, now.
