Jason Isaacs Pays Tribute to His 'Harry Potter' On-Screen Wife Helen McCrory

Jason Isaacs is the latest star to remember Helen McCrory.

Helen passed away this week at the age of 52 following a battle with cancer and her husband, Billions actor Damian Lewis, wrote a touching farewell to her.

In the Harry Potter franchise, Helen played Narcissa Malfoy, the wife of Jason‘s character Lucius Malfoy.

Jason took to his Instagram on Saturday (April 17) to remember Helen, calling her “the greatest actress I’ve ever seen.”

“Decades ago Helen and I auditioned together for a film. I came home and said to [my wife] Emma ‘I think I’ve just met the greatest actress I’ve ever seen,’” Jason wrote. “After years of watching her mesmerize audiences I don’t think that any more…I know it.”

“Luckily, I eventually found out that she was also scabrously funny, shockingly naughty and with an empathetic heart the size of a planet,” Jason continued. “As continually starstruck as I was on the Harry Potter films, being screen-married to and giggle with the great Helen McCrory will always be a highlight. Her proudest achievement, though, was building and loving the family that was her bedrock. They’ve lost so much and I send all my love to Damian and the kids. xxx”

Tom Felton, who played Helen and Jason‘s on-screen son Draco Malfoy, also shared a sweet tribute to Helen.
