Re: Clip from the movie

If he's playing an alien with that head, it seems as if we won't actually get to "see" him at all! ;-)

Re: Jason is filming something

It says on Twitter he's playing Des Lynam - so it must be a biopic. Des Lynam was a well-known UK TV sports broadcaster for many years.

He also hosted the TV quiz show Countdown for a while after the original host Richard Whiteley died suddenly.

Re: Jason Being Left Handed.

Jason is younger than me & my husband, who is left handed. He did not have any problems being allowed to write with his left hand, except in those days he was expected to use a fountain pen, so now holds a pen at a very funny angle because then he had to avoid smudging the ink. We started school in ...

Re: Pilots

In my youth there used to be lots of UK “pilots” on Play for Today and Comedy Playhouse. They were designed as one-off plays or comedies, but some became series, such as Steptoe & Son (which has the Jason connection of course). I think Jason likes being able to ride on the Tube without being recogni...

Re: Pilots

He seems to have been in lot of things that were cancelled after one season in spite of being very good (e.g. Awake) plus some things that had more than one season but were also cancelled, such as The OA. :-(

Helen McCrory (Narcissa Malfoy) has died

I just read this. She was only 52, and had cancer. So sad.

Re: Casting

And Chamber of Secrets was when Jason clicked for me. :adore I'd previously seen him in Dragonheart and one other movie (which I can't remember) and was impressed with him, but no great shakes. Lucius had it all. The rest is history . You & me both, Helen! Such a gorgeous arrogant bastard, and that...

Re: Magic

Didn't Jason do some close-up magic in a film once? Was it Passionada, where he was something of a card sharp?

Re: Inside of You Podcast

Jason is never rude about his co-stars though. He wisely keeps whatever negative thoughts he has about any individual to himself. It doesn't do to badmouth people you might have to act with, or who might be best mates with someone who can get you an acting part. However he has frequently said that t...

Re: Inside of You Podcast

I had a listen this afternoon. I didn't realise their marriage was so sudden!

I loved Jason's tale of HP actors telling stories to each other while they waited for the rain to stop.

(I'm very glad it was possible to skip the prolonged advert for the sponsor!)

"The Wish Man" (not Jason, but related)

Over the years, the Lost Girls have raised money selling Jason calendars to benefit various charities. One of these has been the Make-a-Wish Foundation. I just heard a programme on BBC World Service about Frank Shankwitz, the man who started the charity. It's a fascinating interview - he was abandon...
