Jason Issacs Talks Again on the End of Harry Potter

In another interview echoing almost the same sentiments we heard a few weeks ago made on BBC Radio, actor Jason Isaacs has given another interview where he reflects on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and his role as the dastardly Lucius Malfoy. Regarding the nasty turn of events for Lucius in the final films, Jason says:
"One of the lovely things about these two films is Lucius has gone from the most evil man in the series to being utterly humiliated and emasculated by Lord Voldemort," he said "He's reduced to little more than the man who rushes around with a dishcloth clearing up the spills. It's nice to have that kind of journey as a character and see him get the comeuppance he so richly deserves."

Jason Isaacs also laments the end of the series and says while he is not scheduled to finish filming on Deathly Hallows until next year in April, he says of the end: "I find it unbearable, I'm absolutely dreading it - I'm such a sentimental old fool that even though I don't finish shooting until April, I already feel like they're playing Leaving On A Jet Plane in my ear."

Did anyone else catch the “Armageddon” reference? Jason Isaacs played a NASA scientist in that movie, and the oil drillers/astronauts sang “Leaving On A Jet Plane” when they went to board the shuttles. Love LOVE Jason Isaacs in whatever role he plays! He is the PERFECT Lucius Malfoy.

And yes, I’m so sad about the end of the movies. What will I do then? Re-read the books for the trillionth time, I suppose. And re-watch the movies, of course!

I love how Jason Isaacs prides himself on being part of the Harry Potter films. You get the real sense that he doesnt just see it as a job.

He’s so cool. I love how he loves the series so much. That’s so great. I hope he gets to do lots of Lucius scenes in DH. I wish all the HP actors were as enthusiastic as him.

Such a cool guy, and a perfect Lucius to boot. I think it’s safe to say that we’re all with you there, Jason—I’ve never cried in a HP movie before, but I have a feeling I might just lose it when DH Part II comes out. It’s hard to believe the end is near!

Jason is a great actor and his portrayal of Lucius is awesome. Glad to hear that the actors are really dreading the end of the movies.

What a nice interview! Can’t imagine anybody else playing Lucius. As much as I am looking forward to seeing the Deathly Hallows movies, I am dreading it, too. It really will be the end. sob.
