Harry Potter’s Tom Felton Recalls Coming Out of Rehab

Tom Felton reflects on a difficult time in his life.

The Harry Potter The actor spoke candidly about his struggle with drug addiction and the time he escaped from his rehab center.

“I really broke out,” Tom recalled during an Oct. 18 interview with CBS News. “In a fit of freedom, accidentally, not really thinking intentionally about what I was doing.”

As Tom confirmed in the interview, he ended up walking the beach after leaving rehab. However, this escape brought him closer to seeking help.

“A lot of things clicked when I managed to get down in the water,” he said. “That I needed help and was ready to accept it.”

Tom detailed this exact moment later in his new book, Beyond the Wand: The Magic and Chaos of a Sorcerer’s Growth.

“All of a sudden, frustration erupted inside me,” he wrote. “I was, I realize now, completely sober for the first time in ages, and I had an overwhelming sense of clarity and anger.”
