Thanks BM, for a link to a article in which Jason Isaacs discusses Malfoy – very amusingly. Quotage:

“My first day [on set] was going to Quidditch,” Isaacs said in a phone interview from Australia, where he’s filming a live-action Peter Pan (playing Captain Hook and Mr. Darling). “I was sitting in the Quidditch stands with Alan Rickman and Miriam Margolyes and Warwick Davis, and various extras who were all playing witches and wizards. And the assistant director was saying, ‘Right, OK, Harry’s nearly got the snitch, Harry’s nearer.’… And you were doing kind of Wimbledon acting with your head.” Isaacs mimics the assistant director’s tone: “‘But Draco comes in … and the snitch!’ … And one of the witches turned to one of the other witches and said, ‘What’s a bloody snitch?'”
