Thanks to various sources we’ve pieced together bits of Matt’s interview in Attitude Magazine. All the photos from the shoot may be seen in the gallery! Make sure to buy your own copy to support the magazine and read the full interview! There is also a behind the scenes video in the ‘custom’ digital edition of the magazine. It will work on the iPad and other large devices, but not on mobile phones. We will post the video if its made available else-wear.
UPDATE: Unfortunately we’ve had to remove the photos of the spread from the gallery. But you can still see them right now buy purchasing the digital edition.
“My character, Patrick, is a triathlete and personal trainer, so he’s totally focused on the race that he’s going to be running. I spoke to the director and I said it’d be nice to get into the mindset of someone like that, because he’s not drinking alcohol, he’s just eating salads all the time, and I was very interested to know where you go to in your mind to have that level of commitment. So I sort of gave up alcohol – I say sort of, I have given up alcohol [Laughs].” He adds that he’s also off sugar and has given up carbs, but he misses it all. “I can’t wait for a pint of lager, I tell you that! The pizza and beer will definitely be making a comeback over the summer.”
Any lapses? “Not yet! It’s tough. I do the pub quiz every week, and sitting there every Wednesday with a Diet Coke…I’m off sugar and I can’t really eat carbs. I really wanted to see if I could stick to such a strict regimen, and to really understand what it’s like to have a goal like that and really 110% go for it. I mean, I’ve always been a bit of a sports enthusiast anyway, I love the gym and all that stuff, but I can’t wait for a pint of lager, I tell you that! The pizza and beer will definitely be making a comeback over the summer.”
“Apparently triathletes shave their legs for added aerodynamics, to buy you that extra couple of milliseconds. And my character, that is what he would do, so I think I’ll be losing the leg hair! I haven’t waxed before. I was quite keen just to shave every day but it was Emilia’s idea. She was like ‘No just wax it! Then you’ll only have to do it once!’ I was like, ‘Argh!’ I haven’t done it yet but we’ll see!”
He also talks about his looks and how he still considers himself ‘average’ looking.
Your teeth are great I must say. They’re making me want to sort out mine.
“[Laughs] Thanks man! Whenever I go back to Leeds or see people I went to school with they always talk about my veneers. I’m like, ‘I haven’t got veneers, these are my actual teeth!’ If I can’t […] convince people I went to school with how am I going to convince anyone else! I had these braces – which were […] painful by the way – for six months, and then it was kind of a weird thing, I was excited I guess to go on the red carpet on the release of the last film and be me, and not to have to have the fat suit under my t-shirt. It was quite an exciting buzz. I was 21, I was like ‘yeah, this’ll be cool!’ It was never meant to be a ‘hey everyone, look at me!’ but it was nice to be able to go and be myself. And then obviously a lot of attention focused on it, which I didn’t expect at all. I’ve never considered myself to be good-looking at all. Just average.”

Variety is reporting that Me Before You, starring Matt Lewis, Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin, will be released on June 3, 2016. Filming of the adaption of Jojo Moyes’ novel is currently underway in Pembroke. Since the film’s release is over a year away that gives you plenty of time to read the book in preparation. Matt tells us the book is great, and we’re enjoying it so far. There will also be a sequel to the book, called After You, which will be released this September.
A synopsis of the book may be read below. But as this is a film adaption expect some changes to the plot.
They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . .
Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.
Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.
A Love Story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?
Note: As always, to respect Matt’s privacy, we will not be posting any unofficial photos while he is out and about in town/filming.
