Matthew Lewis was a guest on 1LIVE and the interview is now online. Unfortunately Matthew’s answer are overlaid by a translation so it’s hard to make out for those of us who don’t speak German. Thanks to Sandra, we have summary of the interview:
If he took something from the set?
He took the Neville’s costume from the final battle – this cardigan with all the blood on it and the false teeth
What do you like most about the exhibition? What is your highlight?
the dark department, there are things of the Death Eaters and Voldemort, the giant spider – all in a dark room, it is a crass atmosphere, cool feeling to go through this room.
How did it start with you and Harry Potter? Was there an audition?
Yes, but it already started earlier, before the casting. He was 8 years old and started to reading the books. He loved the books and then it was said that they make a movie about it.
Would you have preferred to play Harry?
When I read the books, I never wanted to be Harry. I wanted to be at this school and be his friend, but as Matthew Lewis.
With the role as Neville I had the best of both worlds.
What was the funniest on set what you still remember in 1000 years?
There is a story from the time of “Harry Potter ad the Prisoner of Azkaban” , Alfonso Cuarón, our director, he had a fart machine there, and he has hidden it on set and as Alan and Michael shooting a serious scene and then – Matt makes a farting Sound – it was very loud in the great hall and all had to laugh. We could not film a long time because we started again and again to laugh.
Do you still have contact with the other HP actors? Do you have a WhatsApp group?
No, no we don’t. We make a few things together every year. For example – we had a stuntman David Holmes, he has been injured badly during the shooting and every year we play a charity cricket to raise money and there we see us
What would Neville do when he meets Saruman?
Neville would run away.
Neville likes the Smurfs. Neville would try to beat him. He likes to fight for the people who can not fight for themselves.
…evil fairy from Maleficent?
she is a combination of beautiful women and really evil. She is nothing for Neville, he would cry and curl up on the floor
And a couple more video interviews have made their way online:
