The Malfoys might not have been squeaky clean people but their family loyalties really run deep. Taking the Harry Potter reunions to a whole other level, actors Jason Isaacs and Tom Felton who played Lucius Malfoy and his son Draco have now emerged from quarantine to share a 'Malfoy family reunion' chat. What's better? They ended up giving fans a sneak peek into how they themselves have been combating the lockdown and social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Isaacs, 56, posted a video on Instagram, showing him reuniting with his on-screen son in support of the Red Cross on Friday. He wrote: “Malfoy Family Reunion. Sharing lockdown life.” From humoring Felton about a technical glitch in the call to calling him a 'Luddite', Isaacs also remarked about Felton's signature Los Angeles quarantine. As Felton appeared in his sunny backyard, Isaacs quipped: "That doesn’t look like someone that is in quarantine. That looks like somebody out in the beautiful Los Angeles countryside.” To that, the 32-year-old Felton replied: "That kinda is our quarantine, really. We’re just hanging out in the garden.”

Even amidst lamenting the ongoing crisis, Isaacs tried putting on an upbeat front. “We’ve got a house and we’ve got food so that puts us a million times better than people who don’t have anywhere to live and don’t have anything to eat and don’t have any money, and all the people who are sick or dying so can’t complain,” he said. “But f*ck, it’s weird and scary is what it is,” Isaacs added.

As tips to combat the current quarantine lockdown, both the actors shared how they've indulged in the recent Netflix documentary 'Tiger King'. When catching up on what they’ve done to stay busy throughout quarantine, both men said they’ve watched the new Netflix hit documentary Tiger King.

Sharing his encounter with Joseph Maldonado-Passage, aka 'Joe Exotic' from the documentary, Felton said: "Weirdly, I did a film a year or so ago where we did a cross country trip and one of the stops was Oklahoma. We filmed in this bar and the owner of the bar was this nutter who walked in with the full-on mullet and the hat and a gun, two guns, I think he had. We were all like, ‘Who the hell is this guy?’ And lo and behold, two years later, he’s got a documentary on Netflix.”

Isaacs expressed shock, asking: “Wait, that was him, the Tiger King?” And Felton explained, "That’s him, that’s the Tiger King, yeah, yeah, at the bar as well. So very strange coincidence there.”
