Father and son, reunited at last. Two of the Slytherin world’s most infamous magicians, Draco and Lucius Malfoy, most well-known in the land of the muggles as Tom Felton and Jason Isaacs, have given a gift to fans of ‘Harry Potter’ in the form of a video that was posted on the Instagram of Isaacs last Friday. As part of a collaboration of the Red Cross to emphasize the power of kindness and encouraging people to stay at home and call a friend instead of seeing it in person, the two british actors were comfortable and we were reunited to talk about how they are coping with the coronavirus outbreak and the measures of self-isolation.
With his father on the screen there to offer advice, Tom Felton, who is living in quarantine from his garden in Los Angeles, be honest as to the difficulties of accepting the reality of the current situation. “When something happens, in a sense, men want to get involved and be proactive and say, ‘Here is my mission, this is what I’m going to do to stay safe’ and then there are these moments of absolute terror and of understanding”.
As a note Just JaredJason Isaacs offered some wise words about their own situation that reminds us to stay positive: “We have a house and we have food so we are in a much better situation than the people who don’t have any place to live nor food to eat nor money, in addition to all the people who are sick or dying. So we can’t question”. Despite this sensible perspective, Isaacs acknowledges that the outbreak of the COVID-19 “it is weird and creepy.” Isaacs arrives to encourage viewers to offer or donate to support the humanitarian aid. Whether you’re a Slytherin or a Gryffindor, the two actors emphasize the importance of following the guidelines of the quarantine and do what you can to help the organizations of medical assistance.
The video chat is in the Instagram of Jason Isaacs, where the actor writes “The meeting of the family Malfoy. We have our lives during the quarantine. Draco and Lucius connect as part of @BritishRedCross #ElPoderDeLaBondad #LlamaAUnAmigo. Have a go. #HarryPotter #QuedaosEnCasaSalvadVidas”.
