Actor Jason Isaacs has given a new interview where he discusses his role as Lucius Malfoy, and filming for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. With filming currently on hiatus and due to resume next month, Jason says of his scene involving the battle at the Ministry:

“My bit is in September and October. It’s a big blue-screen battle for a lot of it so that will be a laugh,” he says. He adds, “We always have to sign these incredible confidentiality clauses where we offer up our children’s eyeballs if we ever break them. I’ve never quite understood since they’re the most popular books on the planet, but anyway, I think I’m involved in the big battle.”

Isaacs admits, “I torture myself by always trying to be interesting and human on screen, but every now and again it’s great to be in ‘Harry Potter’ and just rip it up and be as singularly evil and unpleasant as possible.”

Jason is currently filming a new movie in Canada for the BBC, and can also be seen in his new television series called “Brotherhood,” which debuts on Showtime July 9. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be released next year on July 13, 2007.
