Several readers let us know that actor Jason Isaacs appeared on ITV’s This Morning program, where he discussed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. He did mention his role as Lucius Malfoy in the movie, describing filming a wizard duel his character has with Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) at the Ministry of Magic that involved lots of wand waving, and the battle between the two characters. TLC reader Vicki told us Jason said something along the lines of “Gary Oldman got very carried away and asked if he could snap a few necks and stab someone with his wand!” Reader Ryan also noted during the interview, Mr. Isaacs talked about having to put away the lovely blond wig he sports as Lucius, as it was heartbreaking now that he has completed filming Phoenix. Anyone with video of this interview, please send it in! Thanks very much to Vicki and Ryan!
Update: You can watch the video here, thanks to HP Sorcery.
