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. Enjoy! Thanks so much Mikey!

I heard rumors of them hinting that they would cliffhang it just when they get taken to the Malfoy Manor. I hope we can see Draco! Things do not always go with the book so who knows what will happen. I just hope we get to see alot of the Manor and the Malfoy family and how loving they are. Really, Narcissa worries too much about Draco as seen in HBP Also, i hope we can see Lucius’ fatherly side. I can’t imagine him being a father.

Guess That Book

He was looking down into a kind of pit, an underground room, and lying on the floor some ten feet below, apparently fast asleep, thin and starved in appearance, was the real Mad-Eye Moody. His wooden leg was gone, the socket that should have held the magi
