Jason Isaacs who portrays Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies recently gave an interview where he discussed his return to the screen in Deathly Hallows.
Mr. Isaacs tells that he his surprised when he is recognized, being a fan of Helen McCrory, meeting J.K. Rowling and begging her to have his character return to the series and when he will start filming the next movie.
What was it like to pick up the final Harry Potter book when it came out and not know what was in there, especially for you?
Isaacs: I'm not quite strong enough to pick up a book of that weight. I had a couple of people to help me, and a winch. The secret can be out now. Before it came out I wasn't quite sure – there was a point where I wasn't sure I was going to do anymore because there wasn't much for me to do in number five and I wasn't in number six. I met Jo Rowling for the first time at a big awards dinner. I went over and basically fell to my knees and said "Get me out of prison, I beg you." She looked over her shoulder and looked back at me mouthing "You're out. Chapter One." And that was it, that's all I had to know, and I signed up immediately.
