Matthew Lewis is in Cologne, Gemrany from today until October 3rd. In this post we will be rounding up all the general news articles on his promotion for Harry Potter: The Exhibition. We should hopefully have some video to share soon from our other fan site friends who were able to go. Links as well as some rough translations from articles may be read below. This post will be updated throughout the next few days so keep checking back.
Photos from the events will be uploaded to this gallery album as they appear online. If you have any photos to share please send them in and we’ll post them with a credit to you under the photo.
Even the cloak of sombre Professor Snape is. “When Alan Rickman was the wearing and through the scenes, he was terrifying,” is Matthew Lewis aka Neville Longbottom recalls. “But when you talked to him, he was the kindest in the world.
For Matthew Lewis, the Gryffindor sword is the most amazing exhibit. “I’ve got it here for the first time in years seen. This brings me lots of memories instantly awake as I had in the final scene in the last film, as I have since with Lord Voldemort, with Ralph Fiennes filmed. Neville was a fantastic role!”
“I have taken Neville’s costume of the final Battle. This blue cardigan with all the blood on it. And also the fake teeth I had to wear.” He wanted to take something from the exhibit: the sword of Gryffindor. “I wanted to take it, but I couldn’t. But now I have seen again it here in the exhibition for the first time since filming.” Though he remembers with pleasure the time as Neville, however, to watch the movies is a torture: “I hate it. I have seen every film once, at the premiere.”
Besides, it has been the role of underestimated, slightly overweight Neville Longbottom not at all – for which Matthew Lewis had to wear a fatsuit, by the way, as he got older – which is a little unpleasant for him now. “I do not like to see myself as a child. It is embarrassing for me. But there will always be a part of Neville in me. I have grown with him and was very similar to him as a child: clumsy, plump and shy. I have become adult like the character. We have gone on this trip practically together.”
“As a child I always wanted to play a soldier. I have made this in the BBC series ‘Bluestone 42’ now. Now, therefore, I would love to play James Bond. It will never happen, but it would be cool.”
