Jason Isaacs to Miss Premiere of “Order of the Phoenix?”


May 25, 2007

Actor Jason Isaacs is quoted in a new interview about the upcoming premiere for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Citing filming commitments to his new movie “Good” with Viggo Mortensen (Lord of the Rings) as well as to his television series “Brotherhood,” the National Ledger article says the following:

“Jason Isaacs, known to “Harry Potter” fans as eeee-vil Lucius Malfoy, is not going to be able to make the July premiere of “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” — and that is just fine with him. “I haven’t been able to go to any of the premieres, and you know how superstitious actors can be. It’s best this way, so I don’t mess things up,” explains Isaacs, deadpan.”

Please Note: We do not know if he is referring to the OotP premiere in London, or Los Angeles or possibly the one in Japan or all of them. This editor can testify that Mr. Isaacs did attend the premiere of Goblet of Fire in New York in 2005 (squee!) so we will update with more on this matter as soon as we can. Thanks Jenny.

Avatar Image says: I have my fingers crossed for you, Sue!Avatar Image says: Oh, Sue. *squeeee*Avatar Image says: I think he's only not attending the World premiere which is in Japan. Avatar Image says: The formal world premiere will still be in London. Dan I think is the only one to go to the Japanese premiere which will only by attended by Japanese media, so that is NOT the real premiere. If you read the article, he sounds like he will be too busy (and too superstitious, lol) to attend any of the premieres because he will be in the middle of filming other projects.Avatar Image says: Any way of knowing if Dan is the only one going to Japan ? I know Rupert is not going, but any info about Emma, or Katie, or anyone else ? It seems strange to me to have a World Premiere in Japan, and only have one actor there .... LauraAvatar Image says: AWWWWW POOR SUE not squee, but finger crossed he can be at one of themAvatar Image says: Sue, you are too cute! I love that you linked a "squee" to your picture of him! :)Avatar Image says: Awww, that sucks that he's not attending! Hopefully he'll make it to at least one of them! Avatar Image says: Poor Sue. She'll just have to bring along a cardboard cut out of him to the LA premire. LOL! That would be a riot! I love Jason too, Sue! Avatar Image says: Your picture always makes me so jealous!! Next time you talk to him, tell him to come to Washingotn DC area and look me up, Sue! Us Jason fans need to stick together!
