Harry Potter's JASON ISAACS joins the FACTS actor line-up!

Also known for Star Trek, The Patriot, The Death of Stalin and much more!

Jason Isaacs is one of those rare actors with the indisputable talent of sending chills down your spine just by looking at you. He has nailed every single villain role they’ve offered him in his incredibly rich career, from Harry Potter’s Lucius Malfoy and Peter Pan’s Captain Hook to Star Trek’s Captain Lorca and more. Jason Isaacs is equally astounding when he’s not on the dark side of the spectrum, too, with memorable roles as Ronald Quincy in Armageddon and as Captain Waggoner in Fury. And now he’s coming to FACTS on April 6-7, in Flanders Expo Ghent!

Most people know Jason Isaacs as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, the father of Draco Malfoy. He portrayed the despicable, but somehow still charismatic wizard from the second movie in the franchise in 2002 until the very last one in 2011. Fun fact: last year, in 2018, his movie son Tom ‘Draco’ Felton visited FACTS.

No matter what role he takes on, it’s always memorable. Star Trek fans will greet him as Captain Gabriel Lorca, the rather cold and secretive Starfleet officer. Others will recognise the British Colonel William Tavington, the ruthless antagonist in The Patriot who made life more than miserable for Americans and Mel Gibson. Or maybe you will be reminded of his intimidating portrayal of Captain Hook in 2003’s version of Peter Pan. Ranger Commander Captain Steele in Black Hawk Down, Michael Caffee in BrotherhoodArmageddon, A Cure for Wellness, The Death of Stalin, Awake… And that’s just a small selection.

If Jason Isaacs’ voice sounds familiar, then that’s no surprise: the man has an impressive track record of voice acting work. He was Admiral Zhao in the phenomenal TV series Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra and The Inquisitor / Sentinel in Star Wars Rebels. Isaacs also voiced Siddeley / Leland Turbo in Cars 2, Reza Zaydan in Hitman (2016), Dr. William Birkin in Silent Hill 2 and much, much more!

Jason Isaacs will be the next guest in the FACTS line-up, on April 6-7, in Flanders Expo Ghent. He will be available for photoshoots, autographs and panels on both days.

He will be accompanied by actor colleagues Gaten Matarazzo, Dolph Lundgren, Mads Mikkelsen, Lana Parrilla and Shannen Doherty. For the full guest list so far, check www.facts.be/guests.
