Harry Potter's Jason Isaacs Shares The Best Reactions To His Lucius Malfoy Wig - Exclusive

Jason Isaacs has played some seriously memorable roles throughout his career, from Captain Lorca in "Star Trek: Discovery" to the terrifying antagonist in Netflix's "The OA." And with his role as Lucius Malfoy in the "Harry Potter" series, Isaacs firmly cemented his place in the annals of history. 

Isaacs is currently appearing in the delightful comedy-drama "Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris" alongside Lesley Manville. The movie, which is set in the 1950s, follows Ada [Manville], a widowed cleaner who unexpectedly comes into some money and decides there's only one way she can possibly spend it — on a custom-made Dior gown from Paris. Isaacs plays one of Ada's friends from home, who has somewhat of a soft spot for the unlikely fashionista. 

Upon the release of "Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris," The List caught up with Jason Isaacs, who shared some of the best reactions he received to his Lucius Malfoy wig while filming the "Harry Potter" series.

Jason Isaacs has been asked about Lucius Malfoy's hair a lot

It's undeniable that Jason Isaacs' skill as an actor helped to create Lucius Malfoy's on-screen persona in the "Harry Potter" movies. But credit also needs to be paid to the luscious, long blond wig the actor wore in the movies, which became an integral part of his costume. When we pointed out that many people still Google whether or not Isaacs was wearing a wig in the "Harry Potter" film series, Isaacs retorted, "[They are likely] people who know nothing about hair, I feel." 

He told The List, "It was very strange when journalists would ask me ... because I did many [of the "Harry Potter" films], I was only required maybe two months, every two years on that thing. I did many films and TV series in between in which my hair looked like this or different." Isaacs joked, "People would go, 'Is that your own hair?' And I'd go, 'Yes, it's a remarkable skill. I can grow it to my waist in about an hour if the sunlight's strong enough.'" So in case you were still wondering — Lucius Malfoy's blond locks are most definitely a wig, and not Jason Isaacs' real hair.
