There’s a new interview with Harry Potter star Jason Isaacs over at ComingSoon.net. In it, he talks about watching the kids grow up, being able to work with his idols, begging JK Rowling to bring his character back for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and not being recognized on the street without his platinum blonde hair!
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.
CS: Do you know when you start?
Isaacs: I think I start February next year, but I’m not sure. Dan’s [Radcliffe] got to go to Broadway first and wow them with all of his… with all of him. [Laughs]
