HARRY Potter’s Lucius Malfoy has been cast in season three of Netflix’s Sex Education – and he looks worlds apart from his movie villain alterego.
Jason Isaacs was perfect as the sneering, white-haired, cruel-tongued Death Eater but he’s now ditched the wig for an altogether more wholesome look.
But now he's getting to grips with a completely different type of wand as Netflix’s Sex Education has confirmed him as one its three new stars to join the cast for season 3.
Jason Isaacs, who starred as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter franchise, has been cast as Peter Groff, former-headmaster Michael Groff's older and more successful brother.
Production for the series resumed in August following a pandemic break and the show’s official Instagram account revealed the identities of three new characters.
It captioned the photos of its new stars: “attention students! we are delighted to welcome *checks curriculum* to moordale*
In the photo, Jason couldn't look more different than his evil counterpart as he holds a script for the show and poses with his finger to his lips.
In addition to Jason, Girls star Jemima Kirke will be joining the cast as the school's new headmistress, Hope, who is covering for Mr Groff after he was placed on leave by the school administrator.
Playing the exact opposite of her Girls character, Jemima plays Hope who is a former student of the Moordale school.
Hope comes with a lot of new ideas for the education station and wants to turn Moordale back into the pillar of excellence.
Set to clash with Hope’s rigid plans for the school is nonbinary student Cal, played by gender nonconforming recording artist and songwriter Dua Saleh.
Cal instantly clashes with Hope's new vision for the school and in true Sex Education style, thought-provoking sparks, moments and hilarity will follow.
Alongside its new cast members, season 3 will also see the return of Asa Butterfield as Otis, Ncuti Gatwa as Eric and Emma Mackey as Maeve.
We. Can’t. Wait.
