Of course, he also played a little-known character named Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.

Next up: Mary Wiseman will star as “Tilly,” a Starfleet Academy Cadet in her final year of study, assigned to the Starship Discovery. Wiseman recently played to role of Meg Joyce in the TV series Longmire.
