What Happened to Tom Felton?
As mentioned earlier, Tom was previously an alcohol addict. He started consuming alcohol massively after his tremendous success as a child actor. However, it later turned into his regular habit. He explained what actually happened in his new memoir titled, ‘Beyond the Wand: The Magic and Mayhem of Growing Up a Wizard,’ released on October 15, 2022. He wrote,
“I went from being not particularly interested [in drinking] to regularly having a few pints a day before the sun had even gone down, and a shot of whiskey to go with each of them.”
“The alcohol, though, wasn’t the problem. It was the symptom. The problem was deeper.”
To overcome the addiction, Tom also entered a pricey Malibu rehab facility but broke out of it less than 24 hours after checking in. After fleeing a rehab center, Felton was found sobbing on a beach in California.
Despite that, Tom now seems to be living his life free from bodily or mental problems.
