Jason Isaacs en Tom Felton hebben een Harry Potter-reünie

Jason Isaacs en Tom Felton hebben een Harry Potter-reünie Acteur Jason Isaacs bracht recentelijk een bezoek aan The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando Resort Florida. Hier was hij samen met Harry Potter-collega’s Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) en Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick en Griphook). Isaacs plaatste onderstaande foto’s op Twitter.

De acteurs waren tevens aanwezig bij een panel over de Harry Potter-films. Isaacs onthulde dat hij bang was om getypecast te worden als slechterik en bijna de rol niet accepteerde:

“I auditioned for Gilderoy Lockhart and I was a little bit disappointed in the room when Chris [Columbus] asked me, ‘Did you read the whole script?’ I said yes. ‘Would you mind reading as Malfoy?’ [I said,] ‘Ugh, sure.’

I went in and I read it as Malfoy and I found out they offered it to me a week later. I told my agent, ‘Tell them no. Thanks very much. I appreciate it.’ He [said], ‘Take the weekend and think about it.’ I [said], ‘It’s just too similar to Captain Hook and another guy.’ He gave me the weekend and my nephews called… and my godchildren called… and then every child I knew and their parents called and told me that I had to do it. Not because they cared about my career but because they wanted to visit the set, I think. So I took the job, and thank God I did.”
