The magazine post reads:
It’s disconcerting to meet Tom Felton and Jason Isaacs in the flesh. On screen, they so embody the nasty, conniving Draco and Lucius Malfoy that it’s positively disorienting to find them both charming. “Lucius is a delicious character; I could play him forever,” smiles Isaacs. “There were so many layers to peel back. Tom has to evolve as well – you see him unshackle himself from the man I’ve tried to make him, which is quite inspiring.”
“I’m hoping by the end of it you really feel quite bad for the kid,” says Felton. “Daniel and I have often talked about being two sides of a coin: Harry with all the great influences, and Draco trying to fight the fact that his parents couldn’t be a worse influence, let alone Auntie Bellatrix.” But how’s their twisted little family in real life? “He has been literally quite like a father,” grins Felton. “He took me under his wing from a very young age, he taught me probably more than anyone on the set.”
Isaacs, meanwhile, has nothing but praise for his on-screen son. “Tom is already a magnificent actor, but he always wants to learn and discuss what he’s doing – as do I, by the way. I’ve watched him mature into a really sophisticated storyteller. It’s been great.”
