Jason Isaacs on Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: “A Pretty Nasty Fall From Grace”
Aug 28, 2009
Actor Jason Isaacs was a guest today on BBC radio with Mark Kermode Live Five program where he discussed his role as Lucius Malfoy in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. He confirms he has completed filming on Malfoy Manor, and notes he will be back in a month or so to film those dramatic scenes with Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). In a very reflective interview highlighting his true appreciation of the series by J.K. Rowling, Jason speaks of the humiliation Lucius Malfoy endures in Deathly Hallows, noting the character has his legs cut out beneath him and suffers “a pretty nasty fall from grace,” also remarking that Lucius loses his wand. Jason also weighs in on Half-Blood Prince, where he gives his thoughts on the differences that place in the film and script versus the novel involving Harry being frozen on the Astronomy tower. He also says that the split point of DH is indeed a ‘cliffhanger’ but declines to reveal the point as all actors are legally bound not to reveal this, as they have signed a confidentially agreement. You can download and listen to this interview where Jason also discusses his other work in the film “Good” with Viggo Mortensen and more at this link, then on the Friday August 28, right click and save as.
