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 Brotherhood, Armageddon, 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!
