She was formerly an actress who appeared in Casualty, Jeeves and Wooster and Harry Enfield’s Television Programme.
He told the newspaper of his family life: “I play a psychotic, brain-damaged gangster, who was probably abused as a child, in Brotherhood; a dangerous, violent man in Scars; I’m a slightly less than affable wizard in Harry Potter…
“Then I go home and it’s all Pictionary, Narnia and Playdough.”
The article adds: “Domestically, the nearest Isaacs gets to the extreme roles he plays on screen is ‘trying to stop one of my children stuffing yoghurt into the other one’s eye and deciding which restaurant to go to…’”
