Security is tough these days, especially in the land of TV and movies. Jason Isaacs was prepared for The OA’s spoiler security however thanks to Harry Potter.

When it comes to the world of TV shows and movies, you have to wonder if the level of security undertaken to prevent spoilers from getting out would rival the likes of the CIA, MI5, etc?

"“People will stop you in the street… I can see it in their eyes, the same thing I used to see when I was a young amateur magician,….”"

Jason Isaacs also explained some of the tactics adopted while playing the Dark Wizard when it came to Q+A’s.

“I used to be paired with Tom, doing the Harry Potter publicity,….”

"“Part of the reason is because we play father and son. The other reason is I’ve been around long enough to know that when journalists ask you a question, you don’t respond how you normally respond to a question at dinner, or if you’re out with your friends in a bar or something.“Because we control the narrative. You don’t have to answer any question.”"

It’s not just the Wizarding World that has helped Isaacs. His time on Star Trek: Discovery has also helped him out with handling spoilers as well.

"“I understand why people want to know what’s in it, and people were desperate to know what was in Star Trek, for instance. There was a huge secrecy around that.”"
