Exclusive Interview with Jason IsaacsInterview by Jamie RubyWritten by Jamie Ruby
Jason Isaacs is everywhere these days. Whether you know him as Lucius Malfoy from Harry Potter
, or you've seen his face on a billboard recently advertising his new series, Awake
, it's likely you've seen him. Isaacs is not new to the industry by any means. He's appeared in such films as Event Horizon
, The Patriot
, and more recently Abduction
, as well as on television in The State Within
, and Case Histories
Right now Isaacs can be seen back on television on the new NBC series, Awake
. He stars as Detective Michael Britten, who has recently been in a car accident and as such lives in two realities. In the "green" reality, his son Rex survived the crash, and his wife Hannah died. He goes to sleep and when he wakes up in the "red" reality, his wife is with him, but they lost their son. Unwilling to accept either reality, Britten lives in both, not knowing which is real.
Living in both realities, Britten often gets clues in one that can help him solve cases in the other. Sometimes what he learns may be of a more personal nature and help him to understand something about his son or wife that he previously did not.
Earlier in the week Jason Isaacs talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about his new series, Awake
, which airs Thursdays on NBC.
