Jason Isaacs

Jason Isaacs

Isaacs made his feature film debut with Jeff Goldblum and Emma Thompson in The Tall Guy and has been working non-stop since. This Autumn audiences will see Jason Isaacs as three enormously diverse characters. In October, Isaacs stars as Sir Mark Brydon, the besieged British Ambassador to Washington DC, in the BBC’s 6 part conspiracy thriller The State Within and Brotherhood, a smash-hit series that won critical acclaim on Showtime in the US. In November Isaacs will appear as damaged and dangerous Londoner ‘Chris’ when Channel 4 shows Leo Regan’s Scars. He is also reprising the role of Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix (having first been seen in The Chamber Of Secrets and The Goblet Of Fire). Earlier this year he was seen starring in the Sundance 2006 hit comedy Friends With Money. Last year Isaacs was seen in equally varied roles – from the heartbreaking romantic in Rodrigo Garcia’s award-winning Nine Lives to the repressed suburban dad in Dreamworks’ Chumscrubber (both having world premieres at Sundance 2005) and from the hilarious and homophobic movie-star in Donal Logue’s Tennis Anyone to the cynical love-struck photo-journalist in US TV’s The West Wing. Previously Isaacs pulled double duty as both Captain Hook and Mr. Darling in Peter Pan for director P.J. Hogan, which had critics raving. Other film and TV credits include: Passionada, Black Hawk Down, The Tuxedo, Windtalkers, Sweet November, The Patriot, End Of The Affair, and the box office giant Armageddon, He has also made several films with director Paul Anderson; the sci-fi thriller Event Horizon, Soldier and the British cult film Shopping. On stage he created the role of ‘Louis’ in the critically acclaimed Royal National Theatre production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Angels In America – Parts 1 & 2 and has performed to packed houses at the Royal Court Theatre, the Almeida theatre, the King’s Head and five times at the Edinburgh festival.
