Former “Harry Potter” Actors Honored at Edinburgh International Film Festival

By Hanako M. Ricks

hollywoodnews.com: This week’s Edinburgh International Film Festival brought honors for two beloved actors from the Harry Potter films. Jason Isaacs, who was both loved and hated as malicious Lucius Malfoy, will appear in the dark comedy Skeletons, which was named Best New British Feature at the festival.

Skeletons is the story of two on-call exorcists (played by Ed Gaughan and Andrew Buckley) who travel the country to clear the skeletons of former misdeeds from the closets of their clients. Jason Isaacs plays the Colonel in charge of the two exorcists.

Best Performance in a British Feature Film honors went to David Thewlis, for his portrayal of an IRA gun-runner in the film Mr. Nice. This film is based on the autobiography of Howard Marks, who was one of the most notorious drug dealers/smugglers in Britain in the 1980s. Thewlis plays the part of Jim McCann, and was awarded the honor “for his energetic and electrifying performance as Jim McCann.”

Thewlis is well-loved among Harry Potter fans as former Defence Against the Dark Arts professor Remus “Moony” Lupin

Both actors will be seen in the two-part finale to the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, with release dates scheduled for November 19, 2010 and July 15, 2011.
