Earlier today we reported that Matt Lewis was going to accept the Best Fandom Forever award for Harry Potter at the MTVu Fandom Awards. Now we have the video of his appearance. Matthew sent in a video clip, just as we predicted, which may be watched below. We will update with an official video, if one becomes available, since this was just recorded off the TV and isn’t perfect.

We posted a couple years ago that Matt lent his voice to the character of Nigel in a short animated film, Night of the Loving Dead. While the full feature still isn’t available for viewing online, we have some new promotional photos from the short via creator Anna Humphries and visual consultant Robin Whenary. The film also recently won an award for Best Short Film (in the Over 18′s category) in the St Albans International Film Festival.
In case you want to rewatch, a trailer for the short is below:
Thanks to acciomattdavelewis for uncovering the photos!

MTVu held the first ever Fandom Awards at this year’s San Diego Comic Con and Harry Potter won Best Fandom Forever. According to Entertainment Weekly, Matthew accepted the award on behalf of the films. We assume he was not there in person and it was a video acceptance, but check out the show tonight to see for sure! MTV and mtvU will premiere the 60-minute “mtvU Fandom Awards Special” on Sunday, July 27, at 8 p.m. ET.
“Congratulations to all the fans,” said Lewis. “I’m sure we’ll all agree that the greatest stories are the ones that stay with us forever, so thank you very much for believing in us. We wouldn’t still be here without you.”

In a new interview on BBC Radio Leeds, Matthew Lewis and his brother Anthony discuss Totally Lit North, an acting school that Anthony founded and runs. They chatted with Wes Butters on July 21st about the school and what they are trying to accomplish. Matthew and Anthony also talked about their various roles in the film industry, and of course Harry Potter came up. Matt even talks about his audition process for getting the role of Neville. Visit this page and skip to 1:07:35 – 1:23:13 to listen.
You can still sign up for their Summer sessions. One of the Masterclasses allows one lucky student to interview Matthew on camera as a mock TV interview.
Matt also quickly mentions Bluestone 42 and how the third series will be filming soon in South Africa.

The Daily Mail has posted a preview of Matthew’s interview in JON magazine, which is available now (regular and special editions.) They also posted photos from the spread, some of which we already shared exclusively last week. Read a short preview from the issue below:
‘I am a massive geek in terms of TV that I watch. Well growing up I was a massive Star Wars fan. That was just my ultimate thing, I just wanted to be a Jedi, completely. And that flowed into Star Trek and all that kind of stuff.’
He also admitted being a closet musicals fans as he revealed how himself and a friend hid themselves with their hoods in a cinema full of women when he went to watch Meryl Strep in the Mammia Mia film adaption. Matthew joked: ‘And by the time it got to the end, you know where Meryl Streep comes out and asks do you want one more, and we were like, hoods off, yeah we do!’.
‘My roles have been very, very different from Neville. But it wasn’t by choice, I never called up my agent and said, right I don’t want to do this anymore, I want to be a rough northerner or I want to be a soldier, I never said that. They were just the roles that happened to come up, that I was drawn to, I liked them and I ended up getting them.’
