Jason Isaacs

Jason Isaacs

Jason Isaacs made his Hollywood film debut in 1989's The Tall Guy. He went on to work primarily on the stage and in British television until 1996, when he appeared in Dragonheart.

His major film breakthrough came with his role in The Patriot when he played the evil and brutal Colonel William "The Butcher" Tavington. This was to be the first of numerous evil roles! Jason went on to feature in films such as The End of the Affair, Black Hawk Down and The Tuxedo, but he is probably best known for his role as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.

Jason is about to be seen on the FX channel in Brotherhood and, later this week, on the BBC in a new conspiracy thriller, The State Within.

Emma Bunton

Emma Bunton

Emma Bunton was one-fifth of the most successful girl band ever created. Alongside Ginger, Posh, Scary and Sporty, Emma 'Baby Spice' Bunton sold in excess of 53 million records as part of the Spice Girls. The band released three studio albums, ten singles and even starred in the film Spiceworld: The Movie. They took the 90s by storm, but after Geri left in 1998 the group's popularity waned.

When the Spice Girls finally split in 2001, all of the girls went on to have solo careers. Emma's debut solo album entitled A Girl Like Me spawned the UK number one, What Took You So Long?, as well as three other top 20 hits. In 2004, she released her second album, Free Me, and her third, Life in Mono, is out this November.

Emma is engaged to singer Jade Jones, and is currently wearing out her dancing shoes as a contestant in Strictly Come Dancing's latest series.
