The interview comes complete with a brand new photoshoot as well as Matt’s thoughts on his life post-Potter, the passing of Alan Rickman, and his embarrassment (once again) at being called a sex symbol. Read the full preview here and some snippets below. The full interview will be out on Friday 27th May.
Did you find it difficult breaking the Harry Potter mold?
Not really. The first thing after Harry Potter, I played a guy who was not very nice. He wasn’t exactly a desirable character. And then I did a film where I was rough and ready; I was capable of throwing my muscle and weight around a little, completely unlike Neville. I don’t really get offered those types of roles anymore. The lovable, vulnerable, cheeky, Neville-type roles. They just never come up, it’s not like I’m getting them and turning them down. Maybe I’m just really good at being a dickhead haha. Neville was quite complex in his character, with his history and things like that, but I am more drawn towards characters that are shades of grey. I don’t like the idea of black and white. I’m drawn to characters that make me question things. What made him this way? Why does he want this? Why is he behaving in this manner? That’s what I find interesting. And you can only get that from complex interesting characters.
I’ve completely embarrassed you [by calling you a sex symbol] at this point.
Yeah! Cause I can never see myself as that. When I grew up, my sister was obsessed with Take That. So people like Gary Barlow or Robbie Williams, they were like sex symbols. David Beckham and you’ve got your Ryan Goslings. They’re the heartthrobs. I’m not; I’m just a weird looking bloke from Leeds who keeps getting jobs on telly for some reason.
What’s your FAULT?
I’m very stubborn. To the point of almost childish immaturities. On the flipside, I do stick to my guns.

A few days ago Matthew posted an interesting update on Twitter about filming in Budapest.

After some sleuthing done by SnitchSeeker, it appears that he was filming a role in the thriller Terminal which also stars Mike Myers, Max Irons, Dexter Fletcher, Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg and more. It is being produced by David Barron who also produced the Potter series.
In the dark heart of a sprawling, anonymous city, two twisted tales are unraveling in the dead of night. Bill, a terminally ill and irritatingly fussy man, seeks refuge in an all night cafe and falls into conversation with Annie, beautiful waitress and macabre confidante. Across the Precinct, locked in a cramped and filthy apartment, hardened killers Vince and Alf are lying in wait to carry out a hit, and driving each other insane. As the stories unfold and the characters collide, the conspiracies mount and we realise that nothing is at it seems.
Note: This is still just speculation and has not been confirmed, but it is highly likely considering all the facts.

Three photos of Matthew Lewis in Me Before You have been released by Warner Bros. Two had already been circulating in medium quality, but we now have HD versions of the images. Matthew plays Patrick in the film, which will be released on June 3rd 2016. View all three photos in the gallery!
They have also released a brief synopsis of the film, including short interviews with the cast. Matthew says:
“Patrick is Lou’s boyfriend of about seven years, and it’s comfortable, you know? He’s also a personal trainer and is obsessed with fitness. He’s set up his business and he’s won this local entrepreneur of the year award twice, and that’s just spurred him on to get fitter and fitter. Now he’s planning to do this Viking triathlon in Norway as his and Lou’s holiday together. In his mind, and probably hers at one point, they’re going to stay in this town for the rest of their lives, get married, get a house, have kids, and everything’s going to be okay.
“When Will comes into her life,” he continues, “suddenly her eyes are open to the possibilities and opportunities in the world outside of this town…and outside of Patrick.”
