Jason will read a story, along with other actors from Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts and Cursed Child.:

Three actors from the original film series—Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) will each read a story apiece, taking on The Warlock’s Hairy Heart, The Fountain of Fair Fortune and Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump, respectively. And Jude Law, who plays Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts film series, will read Dumbledore’s annotations about the stories.

It's a nice touch to have some of the HP cast doing the readings.

Jason always reads stories so well, he does all the voices and different accents.

Wow. No one knows Lucius more than . . . Lucius. Jason gave a good wrap-up of the rest of his character's life. Gives new meaning to "how the mighty have fallen."

Thanks for posting thunder.

Still love his story about being trampled to death - and then they could not use it!

I imagined & wrote Lucius drowning his sorrows in alcohol and sitting around his house scruffy and unshaven well before he appeared that way on film. It must be due to Jason's portrayal, even though he had not voiced his opinion at that time. It certainly didn't come from the books. I am glad the man himself & I agree about Lucius.
