British actor Jason Isaacs once feared for his life when he was approached by a gang of sinister-looking armed men - only to realise they were just fans of his hit U.S. TV show Brotherhood.

The Harry Potter star, who played a hardened criminal in the programme, was walking through Los Angeles when he was accosted by a group of guys holding weapons.

Isaacs was convinced they were going to harm him, but he was relieved when they just wanted to "high five" him for his mob member role.

He tells Britain's Daybreak show, "When I was in Los Angeles, when it (the show) was first on (television), there were these gangmembers across the road and I thought, 'That's it. I'm dead, game over'... People who were clearly touting all kinds of weaponry would come and high five me because I play this psychotic brain damaged gangster figure, and he's very popular amongst people who go to prison a lot."
