Here is the story of how the actor Jason Isaacs has become the face of Lucius Malfoy in the saga of Harry Potter

But twenty years ago, the situation was not the same, and, someone, had almost given up to become one of the villain's most famous film franchise, Warner Bros.

In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Jason Isaacs has in fact revealed that, when presented to the Warner for the audition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, it had not been for the part of Lucius Malfoy, who we all know. The actor was presented instead to act in the role of Gilderoy Allock, professor bumbling and affable interpreted later by Kenneth Branagh; and had no intention of acting the part of another villain on the big screen.

So I accepted the job (and thank heaven I did).
