Tuesday's Connector of the Day: Jason Isaacs

February 18th, 2010
06:58 PM ET

Actor Jason Isaacs is probably best known for his role in the Harry Potter series as the evil Lucius Malfoy, but many others will recognize him for his stand-out performances in The Patriot, Event Horizon and Brotherhood.

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/02/18/malfoy.getty.blog.jpg caption ="Jason Isaacs plays Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter series."]

The 46 year old was born in Liverpool, England to Jewish parents and only got the acting bug after joining a drama club at his university.

After initially being known as a TV actor in the UK, Isaacs eventually broadened to the big screen, appearing in a number of blockbuster hits including Armageddon.

However, it was his role as the cunning Lucius Malfoy that has made him a household name.

He has been part of the Harry Potter franchise since 2002 and is set to appear in the last chapter of the series which debuts this summer.

Isaacs is also taking back in the Jameson Empire Film Awards that are taking place on 28th March.

He is on the judging panel for one of the categories, the Jameson Done in 60 Seconds Award.

Here's your chance to ask Jason Isaacs a question.

Ask him for an inside look on the filming of the last movie. Do you want to know any interesting secrets about his fellow cast mates?

Maybe you want to know what his favorite Harry Potter film is?

Tune in on Tuesday at 2100 GMT to see if Jason answered your question.

    Brotherhood was one of my favorite shows on TV. Was there any specific reason it was cancelled? The acting and storyline was great. I was disappointed that it was cancelled because there were a lot of unanswered questions.

    Which is more of a hoot to wear: the blonde, straight wig of Lucius Malfoy, or the black, curly wig from Peter Pan? I have to say, you look great in both!

    Do you feel like you are being type-casted as the bad guy and if so are you OK with that?

    What do you think of your character Lucius Malfoy? Is there any character you secretly wish you could be?

    You've been working on the Harry Potter series for a while. Have you felt it has been a long time?

    Lastly, when you play bad guys you almost always have long hair and I just want to say it makes you look dashing. : )

    Lucius Malfoy is an extremely dark, cruel character in both the books and the films. When you're playing the role, do you attempt to scale that back because you know the audience is mostly children? Or do you let loose with the character, and leave it to the parents to decide if the films are too dark for their children to see?

    Will you be able to take the Lucius wig home after filming is complete? If still possible,will you please wear the hair back in the ribbon once like in CoS or are you all disheveled due to the beating Lucius takes several times during DH?

    Do you think that Lucius is actually capable of caring for Draco's safety during the course of DH, and did you bring some of your own instincts as a father to the table when filming?

    There are some great & intense scenes for Lucius esp at the Manor-what was your favorite moment working with Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort), Helen McCrory (Narcissa) & Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix)?

I'm not only a fan of your work from Harry Potter and the Patriot, but I thoroughly enjoyed listening to you as Admiral Zhao in the Nickelodeon cartoon "Avatar: The Last Airbender". I've wondered for a while, would you ever consider lending your voice to another animated production? You really did a great job of bringing Zhao to life, it be great to hear your voice in that medium again. Thank you!

    Was there ever a part of Lucius Malfoy you had a hard time portraying, if yes, what is it?

    I know in the near future, there would be some kind of a Harry Potter remake. What kind of expectation would you have on that actor that would portray Lucius Malfoy?

    If there would be a Harry Potter remake in the future and you could be given a role other than Lucius Malfoy, who would you portray and why?

    Dear Mr. Isaacs,

    – You've mentioned before that you've read the Harry Potter books and really enjoyed them. If you had written them, is there something you would added or changed to Lucius' personality?

    – How long does it usually take you to shoot your scenes for the HP movies?

    – Is there an actor you wish had worked in the HP movies, whether because you really admire them or because you think they would really fit in a certain role?

Thank you for entertaining me and being a part of my childhood for many years along with the rest of the Potter cast.

    Mr. Isaacs, I would like to say a big thank you for your just and, frankly, AWESOME portrayal of Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter series. I cannot wait to see your work in the next two films.

    My questions to you are:

    Who on the Harry Potter set are you closest to and are there any actors that have starred in the Harry Potter films that you take inspiration from, or admire?


    If you could spend just one hour in
    the world of Harry Potter (as though it were real) what would you do, and which characters would you want to interact with?

    Thank you very much for your time!

    When portraying a character in a movie that is derived from a book is it deeply important to you to stay as close as possible to the book's depiction or do you use your own feeling of how the character acts especially when a character is as complex and important as Lucius Malfoy to the story's plot?

By the end of the last book, he is in disgrace and his wife ends up covertly aiding Harry Potter to fool Voldemort. Do you think the experience change Lucius' ideals, or did he just resume the mask he had worn for years?

    Hi, Mr. Isaacs! First of all, I have to repeat what practically everyone else has said here and tell you that you're a brilliant actor, and I don't think anyone else could pull off the role of Lucius Malfoy as well as you!

    Anyway, my question is more about your character. I was wondering if you think there's any chance of reconciliation between Lucius Malfoy and Arthur Weasley after the battle at Hogwarts, since he sort of joined the good side (well, abandoned the bad side to make sure his son was okay), or do you think there'd still be too much animosity between them because of their past and class difference?

    Yeah, I'm asking about the relationship between two people who don't actually exist...sorry, I'm a nerd. But I figured there was no one better to ask than the person who brings one of these fictional characters to life on screen!

    Keep up the amazing work,

    Hi Jason. Amongst the actors, you are one of the biggest Harry Potter fans (only rivalled by your younger co-stars). Considering this fact, what was your reaction when you were given the honour of being the narrator for 'The Hidden Secrets of Harry Potter'? When I inserted the Special Features DVD of 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix', I saw:
    'The Hidden Secrets of Harry Potter'
    Narrated by Jason Isaacs

    At first, I did a double take. I was like,"THE Jason Isaacs???" Then I realised that it was true, and I absolutely loved it!!! It seemed as if WB was honouring you by giving you a chance to show your love for the franchise!! No other actor/Harry Potter fan has had that kind of an opportunity to get up, close and personal with some of the deepest secrets of the series. So many fans would've done anything to switch places with you.

    Mr. Isaacs I would first like to state that you are (in my opinion) one of the best actors who has the ability to show your emotional range on screen and can draw the audience into feeling what your character is going through exactly at that moment. Bravo!
    My question to you is: Out of all the films you have worked on, which film had the hardest or toughest scene to film, what was that scene and what made it so difficult?
    If possible, could you also tell us the film that has the scene that was the most fun or enjoyable, what scene in that film it was and what made it so enjoyable?

    Thank you so much and I wish you the best.

    3) How long the Hogwart's batlhe will be?
    4) Have you done your scenes for the Malfoy's Mansion?
    5) Do you have any particular information from the movies that hasn't came yet?
    That's all. I would realy appreciate if you answer these questions.

    Hi, first I just want to say that you play the perfect Lucius Malfoy. There were many HP castings that were right on the money, and IMO, you're definitely one of the best.

    So perfect, that I wonder if, when off the set and out in public, if you are recognized, do people sometimes confuse you with the character and treat you negatively? If so, how do you deal with them?

    Excuse me if this is a fairly personal question, and it probably won't be answered anyway, but I've heard that you don't drink alcohol. Was just wondering about that, and if it makes the riotous cast parties strange in any way.

    Also, I think that The State Within is a brilliant piece of work. Are there any plans of it being played or picked up at all in the States? I feel like it would be ridiculously appealing to American audiences, and I find it strange that it never really took off here.

    Hope you're well, I'm a big fan and I hope the best for you, your family, and your career.

If they were, I wonder as you record them and how you see that some details of the previous movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, as the destruction of the shop Ollivander and his capture make all the difference in this film.
    I wonder which was the scene that most enjoyed writing, and why?
    If you could play another character that would be and why?
    How you would like to see the end of Lucius Malfoy?
    You like to do as the evil Lucius Malfoy? If yes, why?
    What was the movie that you liked more shooting and why?
    Have you read all the books in the series?

And you, yourself, are incredibly good-looking. ;D My question for you is what has been the movie, in your opinion, that has best given the easiest, and most precise, portrayal of your character? Just overall? 🙂 And also, are you present for the in-the-forest meeting with Harry and Voldemort in which Harry gives himself up? If not, has that scene been shot yet? Finally, what was your favorite chapter(s) in the Deathly Hallows, and if those favorites have become the most excited for you to film?

    How do you relate to the character Lucius Malfoy? And, conversely, how does he relate to you-do you find yourself thinking as him at all?

    What was your initial reaction to receiving the role? were you really familiar with the character, or did you interpret him as you filmed? Where there any scenes filmed with Lucius Malfoy that did not end up on screen (what were they?)?

    And as a side note-I read on someone's blog that, in their opinion, you could play an ideal Thranduil (Legolas Greenleaf's father, another aristocratic type) in "The Hobbit" (precursor to "Lord of the Rings"). Have you ever considered a role in that universe; if so, what?

    Throughout the HP series, Lucius seen as a snobby, bastard (ill use this word instead of vulgur). From the first five books and movies we see the evil side of him, but in the sixth and mostly in the seventh book we see him more of a coward towards voldemort. Was the transition from that evil bastard, to the coward hard? And what about Tom? Was working with him from being the bouncing ferret to the kid who realized that deep down he really wasn't that evil helped with that transition?

    Hi Mr. Isaacs! The younger actors/actresses on the Harry Potter set have been influenced and have loved working with more experienced people. I was wondering if someone had possibly greatly influenced you. Or, also, who you most enjoyed interacting with on that set.
    Thank you so much for your work– you're an amazing Lucius. Very much how I imagined him. Good luck on Deathly Hallows.

    -how did you get to do the part of Lucius Malfoy in the harry potter movies? I mean, was it an audition, they came to you, or what?

    – What's it like to shoot the final chapter of the series?

    Mr. Isaacs,

    I've been a fan of yours since you were first cast in HP and the Chamber of Secrets not just because you're a talented actor, but because you're smart, funny, and grounded, and a Mac geek like me. 🙂

    I have three questions:

    Do you have any plans to write or direct?

    Have you thought about starting a blog or a Twitter?

    Have you pre-ordered your iPad yet?

    Thank you, and best wishes to you and your family.

    First I want to say how amazingly talented you are! I loved your role as Hook in Peter Pan, and – although you're probably sick of hearing it – love you even more in Harry Potter 😀 You play Lucius Malfoy so perfectly...
    My question: Were you told how to act in the Chamber of Secrets? Such as when you examined "Harry's scar" or when you push Harry/Daniel aside at the end with your cane? Were they all your moves? Or did the director tell you what to do?

    If you allow me, I want to do three questions to you:
    The first one is: What you give advice to the fans who want to be actors as your?, what steps must follow?.
    The second one is very simple: are you going to go to the inaugurate of Harry Potter's fairground?.
    The third one is a bit compromising: They say that the principal actors of HP are normal and currents as us, sat to another side of the great screen, so they do not believe a few stars of the cinema
    thing that makes us happy enough!. If this is true you can say to us some faults that we should not know of Rupert, Emma, Evana, Tom, Bonnie, Ralph,
    Alam ...?. With this question I do not want to trouble you, which I want is to feel nearby the actors whom so much I adore.

    Knowing now that everyone, especially women are so attracted by Lucius Malfoy, do you think you should have acted him differently. He is a much more evil and cowardly Person in the books and he ist not supposed to be attractive. Now many people like to believe that Lucius is not that evil and is a very good boy inside. BTW I like to believe that too.

    Hello Mr. Issac!

    First of all I love you! I'm a big fan! You're first movie I was The Patriot and at 9 years old I was scared of you. But I feel in love with the movie! I know it almost word for word (even if I don't have it) Then of course I got Chamber of Secrets and knew your where my favorite "evil" actor from the Patriot two years before. A few years later I got Peter Pan and was all excited when I saw you as Mr Darling and the Famous Captain Hook! My sister didn't believe till we watched the credits. My brother is also a big fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender and again someone in my family didn't believe me that you where in it! He still hates me that I keep bring it up!

    What is it like playing beloved "children villians" to "adult villians" Like Luicus Malfoy and Captian Hook to Col. William Tavington?

    Was it fun doing the Narrator of "The Hidden Secrets of Harry Potter" and "He Who Must not be Named"?

    What was it like being able to work some the biggest young stars of all time Dan Radcliff, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint & your "Son" Tom Felton? And was it fun working with Alan Rickman and Maggie Smith?

    Hello Mr. Isaacs,

    "The State Within" was recommended to me by a Canadian ex-pat in London, and I have had the pleasure of enjoying your acting career ever since. Your portrayal of Sir Mark Brydon during the unjust execution of Luke Gardner (Lennie James) was one of the most moving, most impactful scenes I have ever witnessed. Conveying amazing strength, emotion and 'in the moment' realism seems to be your forte. At the same time, you possess a confident disregard for 'playing it safe', which makes every role you take on utterly your own. All I have learned about acting goes out the window when I watch your performances – in a good way. From flamboyant to heartbroken, from vile and arrogant to frightened and vulnerable, I believe your characterizations.

    My question as a young actress is: how do you /become/ a character without succombing to the fear and expectations associated with on-camera work? Are you really so confident, or do you have a technique that you can share with those of us who are still learning?

    I appreciate your time. Best wishes for your continued success.

    Francesca B.

    PS: HBO is working on a lavish fantasy/intrigue series based on "A Game of Thrones" by George R. R. Martin. (It has been described as a cross between LOTR and the Sopranos, but with more sex and murder and backstabbing – several families compete to win the Throne of Westeros/England, at any cost.) I would love to see you as the character of Petyr Baelish, aka: Littlefinger, a deliciously conniving and charming Master of Coin who pulls all the strings (without anyone knowing). He is, in my opinion, the most important character in the books, and I have always pictured you in the role when I read the novels. If you would mention this to your agent, I would be most thankful. 🙂

    My question to you is: with which other character Lucius looks more like? And what's the sensation putting your blond wig.
    It's amazing can speak with you (even of this way) . Ask to the people of the site my email ; ) I love your work and you even more.

    Kisses from all brazilian people.

    Jasoooon , i can't belive that i am writing to you! That's amazing
    I simply love you soooo much (don't think i'm crazy ; )

    I want to ask you if you think that Bellatriz could make a couple better with your character than Narcissa, once that the are more similar one each other.
    Or they evil could threaten the Voldmort plans?
    Or Lucius simply complete the good side of Narcissa? 🙂 (so cute)

    Well for ending, please i beg you to write me an e-mail, or give me your! I would be sooo much more happy with just one 🙂
    Ok, maybe i really be a little bit crazy!
    Kisses from Brazil (the girl in top is from brazil too, cool!)

    You do such a great job as Lucius Malfoy. You capture exactly how imagine him to be. I just wish that there were more scenes with Lucius in it.

    How would you best describe the relationship between Lucius and Narcissa?

    Best of luck on your future projects!

    Hi Jason

    Big fan of yours.

    Brotherhood – it was such a well written and amazing series. Did you ever find out where Michael was for those 7 years? And where did he go to at the end of the series.

    Although there has been so much that you have accomplished in your career, is there anything that you wish to do that you havn't had the time or ability to do? If so, what?

    Robin Hood movie is quite good, a bit more historically accurate in my opinion..`
