There is no better way to celebrate the birthdays of our most favorite stars than by doing a nice little 'lesser known facts' piece on/concerning them! The reason why everyone loves these types of posts is because outside of the roles our beloved actors play in movies, we don't really know that much about them in real life.
This month, we celebrate the birth anniversary of one of Hollywood's most famous actors, Jason Isaacs; who is a well-known English actor, best known for his role as the villainous Lucius Malfoy in the much loved Harry Potter movie franchise. On the 6th of June, the star celebrates his 53rd birthday and therefore, as promised above, I have decided to share with you eight fascinating facts about the actor (in real life).
Without further ado read on for things you never knew about Jason Isaacs.

What very few people know is that Jason Isaacs nearly turned down his role as Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter because he did not wish to play yet another villain in a movie. Luckily, he changed his mind at a later stage since I for one cannot picture anyone else donning that ultra blond wig!
In 2006 Jason appeared on BBC 1's Saturday Kitchen where he declared celery to be "food hell" and pork (his favorite) to be 'food heaven'.
What some might find quite surprising is the fact that Jason Isaacs was in fact born Jewish!
In his biography, Jason states that he is in fact, left handed when it comes to writing. For everything else in life, he, however, prefers using his right hand, which I must say is very interesting and not a trait you hear of every day.
On numerous occasions, Jason has made it very clear that he loves cranberry and soda with no lime and only a few blocks of ice.
Jason loves pork.
Jason has a law degree from Bristol University which he decided against putting to use; choosing a career in acting instead.
Not much is known about Jason's stalker, just that it was a woman whom he regularly had to take to court in order to obtain restraining orders against her.
And there you have eight unknown specifics about Jason Isaacs. In closing, I just wish to say, Happy Birthday, Jason, may all your wishes come true this year and may you have the most blessed of days!
