While Jason Isaacs was recently on the press rounds for Paul Greengrass' upcoming action thriller Green Zone, he chatted with our rock star friends over at Collider about the upcoming two-part finale that is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part I and Part II. Here is what the actor had to say:
It's very sad for me. I was already nostalgic for the history of Harry Potter while I was still making it and I knew the end was coming. It was two films. They made the last book into two films and it was a fantastic experience because everybody's back. Everyone who is left alive that is. And even some of the dead people. There is nothing greater than sitting around on a Harry Potter set when you're not filming and listening to the likes of Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Bill Nighy and Jim Broadbent tell stories. And watching everybody crew the scenery up in the few moments you get on screen - trying to out ham each other is magnificent. This big franchise goes out in an epic way. But I was always cognizant of the fact that I'd have to pack up my little furry friend of a wig and stick it in a box and say goodbye to the cane. All the joy was tinged with sadness for me.
