On Saturday, Jason Isaacs took to Twitter to record the death and celebrate the life of Harry Potter co-star Helen McCrory.

The film series, which is based on the world-famous book series by JK Rowling, starred Isaacs and McCrory as Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy, the evil parents of the pure-blood Slytherin wizard and Harry Potter antagonist Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton).

“Helen and I auditioned for a film together decades ago. I came home and said yes [my wife] Emma [Hewitt] “I think I just met the greatest actress I’ve ever seen,” recalled Isaacs. “After years of watching her fascinate audiences, I no longer think … I know.”

Fortunately, the actor added, he would find out that McCrory was also “incredibly funny, shockingly naughty, and with a caring heart the size of a planet”.

Helen McCrory recalls “Peaky Blinders”, “Harry Potter” families, BAFTA and others: “Wonderful woman who left us way too early”

“As impressed as I was in the Harry Potter films when I was married to and on screen [giggling] with the great Helen McCrory will always be a highlight, ”he continued. “However, her proudest accomplishment was building and loving the family that was her foundation. You have lost so much and I send all my love to Damian and the children. Xxx ”

On his Twitter note, Isaacs continued, “Hold those you love and tell them every day. Thats all we have. “

McCrory, an award-winning actress remembered for her significant contributions to film, television and theater, died in London on Friday. She was 52 years old.

McCrory’s husband, billionaire star Damian Lewis, announced her death on Twitter, noting that she had died peacefully at home after a “heroic battle” with cancer.

“She died while she was alive. Fearless, ”added Lewis. “God, we love her and we know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. It was blazing so brightly. Now, kid, get up in the air and thank you. “

Between 2009 and 2011, McCrory starred with Isaac in three Harry Potter films, from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to the final film in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The actress is also remembered for her twists and turns in BBC crime drama Peaky Blinders, BBC, HBO’s His Dark Materials and the James Bond film franchise, among others.
