Jason Isaacs Net Worth $12 Million

Jason Isaacs is the third of four sons in a Jewish Liverpudlian family, and went to King David High school before he moved with his family to Northwest London in 1974. There, Jason went to The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School, in Elstree, Hertfordshire, and then studied law at Bristol University from 1982 to 1985. From 1985 to 1988, Isaacs trained at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama and secured his first role almost immediately after graduating.

His first part occurred in an episode of “This Is David Lander” in 1988, and a year later he appeared in the mini-series “A Quiet Conspiracy”, and in 23 episodes of “Capital City” from 1989 to 1990. In 1989, Jason played in his first feature film called “The Tall Guy”, starring Jeff Goldblum, Rowan Atkinson, and Emma Thompson, while in 1992, he starred in the series “Civvies”. He continued with roles in such movies as “Shopping” (1994) alongside Sadie Frost and Jude Law, and Rob Cohen’s Oscar-nominated “Dragon Heart” (1996) with Dennis Quaid, Sean Connery, and Dina Meyer. Isaacs also appeared in “Event Horizon” (1997) starring Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill, and Kathleen Quinlan. By the end of the ‘90s, Isaacs had played in Michael Bay’s Oscar-nominated “Armageddon” (1998) with Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton, and Ben Affleck, and had a part in “Soldier” (1998) alongside Kurt Russell, and in Neil Jordan’s Oscar-nominated “The End of the Affair” (1999) starring Ralph Fiennes, Julianne Moore, and Stephen Rea.

In the early 2000s, Jason had parts in Roland Emmerich’s Oscar-nominated “The Patriot” (2000) with Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger, and in “Sweet November” (2001) alongside Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron. Isaacs stayed busy and appeared in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-winning “Black Hawk Down” (2001) starring Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor, and Tom Sizemore, and then in ”Resident Evil” (2002) with Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez. In 2002, Jason appeared as Lucius Malfoy in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” with Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson, and a year later, he starred in “Peter Pan”. He continued to portray Malfoy in “Harry Potter” sequels: “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” (2005), “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” (2007), and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” (2009). In the meantime, Jason starred as Michael Caffee in 29 episodes of “Brotherhood” (2006-2008), which also improved his wealth.

In 2010, Isaacs played in “Green Zone” with Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear, and in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”, while in 2011, he appeared in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2”. Jason had a lead role in 13 episodes of “Awake” in 2012, and a supporting one in “Fury” (2014) starring Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf. Most recently, Isaacs had parts in “The Infiltrator” (2016) with Bryan Cranston, John Leguizamo, and Diane Kruger, while in 2016, he began playing Dr. Hunter Hap in the series “The OA”. At the moment, he is working on “London Fields”, “Behind the Glass”, and “The Death of Stalin”, all of which will be premiered in late 2017.

Regarding his personal life, Jason Isaacs married BBC documentary filmmaker Emma Hewitt in 1988 and has two daughters with her. He is the best friend of writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson, is left-handed, and speaks Spanish fluently.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on playing Harry H. Corbett in The Curse of Steptoe (2008)] This wasn't just a sitcom. It was like watching a five-act Ibsen (Henrik Ibsen) play. Corbett was making us laugh, but we were laughing at his pain and the hopelessness of his situation. Then there were the story lines ... politics, class, religion, sex. This wasn't what an early-1960s comedy was supposed to deal with. Everybody knows his Steptoe (Steptoe and Son (1962)) voice, but that was nothing like his real voice. He was actually raised in Wythenshawe. He had that peculiar northern thing of trying to make his accent posher than it was. A bit like Harold, really. So much of his real life mirrored Steptoe and I think Galton (Ray Galton) and Simpson (Alan Simpson) picked up on that. Unfortunately, typecasting was far more prevalent in those days. Harry H. Corbett was, without doubt, the finest actor in the country, but the more successful he was as Steptoe, the less work he was offered. He wanted to walk away, but he couldn't. He was very comfortably trapped. I've got mates who are in exactly the same situation. Starring in hugely successful shows, earning loads of money - but they can't stand their jobs. The country loved Harold Steptoe, but Corbett hated him. Really hated him.
2[to the producers of the stage version of "Angels in America" while auditioning for the part of "Louis"] Look, I play all these tough guys and thugs and strong, complex characters. In real life, I am a cringing, neurotic Jewish mess. Can't I for once play that on stage?
3I imagine like most of us that I'd like obscene amounts of money but the people I met and worked with who have those obscene amounts of money and have obscene amounts of fame have awful lives. Really. I mean hideously compromised lives. And I can go anywhere. No one knows who I am. I can go on the tube and bus and wander through the streets. So I'm quite happy not to get the girl.
4Every time I make a plan, God laughs at me.
5[on the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling] I went off and read the books after the audition and I read all four books in one sitting - you know - didn't wash, didn't eat, drove around with them on the steering wheel like a lunatic. I suddenly understood why my friends, who I'd thought where slightly backward, had been so addicted to these children's books. They're like crack.
