This Harry Potter actor doesn’t want to ‘stab’ [J.K. Rowling] in the back” despite his disagreements



For several years, Jason Isaacs played Lucius Malfoy, Draco Malfoy’s father. A villain who does not hesitate to swear allegiance to Voldemort and a major character in the franchise. If the actor already has a good career, the role has popularized him with the general public in the film adaptations of Harry Potter. So inevitably, the films are very linked to JK Rowling, the novelist at the origin of this immense universe. But recently, the latter has been noticed for his transphobic outings. Quickly, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) dissociated themselves from their positions. Today, Oscar Isaac talks about it (via CinemaBlend).

That of JK Rowling’s transphobic positions repeatedly denounced by associations and activists.

But if the man does not share his positions, he opts for nuance.

There’s a whole lot of stuff about JK Rowling. You know, I play complicated characters so I’m interested in complicated people. I don’t want to get carried away on questions of transidentities, talk about it, because it’s very risky. She has her opinions, I have mine. And they differ on many points.

Jason Isaacs

Jason Isaacs refuses, on the other hand, to turn his back on the novelist despite his positions which he does not share: ” One thing you should know, and that’s no justification, is that she devotes a big chunk of her fortune to making the world a better place. For thousands of vulnerable children, through its association Lumos. This is a good thing. We Harry Potter actors have worked for her and seen what she does. Despite his controversial remarks, I don’t want to jump at the chance to stab her in the back without talking to her. What I haven’t done yet “.

The actor seems ready to talk about this thorny subject with JK Rowling.
