Last week we shared our photos from last weekend’s Celebration of Harry Potter. We were also able to take part in a press Q&A session with the four cast members on Friday evening. Unfortunately our live video got a little messed up after we finished streaming (view the 30 minutes that were posted here.) Fortunately for you, there’s plenty of other footage. Watch the full press conference below thanks to The DIS.
There isn’t much new information in the video, since most press ask the same questions every year. Matthew does share what advice he would give to his younger self and talks a bit about his passions outside of acting (aka: rugby league.)
(Near the beginning of the video you can see Matt acknowledging our owner Megan.)

Now in its 7th year, 500 Words is open to every 5-13 year old in the UK and has become one of the most popular story-writing competitions for kids in the world.
Nearly half a million children have been inspired to write stories so far – that’s over 277 MILLION words. Why not get your class involved this year if you’ve not taken part previously, or reignite imaginations if your school is a regular to the competition?
Hosted by Blue Peter’s Barney Harwood and BBC Breakfast’s Naga Munchetty, the lesson features acclaimed authors Malorie Blackman and Frank Cottrell Boyce. We’ll also be joined by some very special guests including Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Revolting Rhymes) and Arthur Parsons, Head of Design at TT Games, who make games such as LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens and LEGO Marvel’s Avengers.
This literacy Live Lesson explores setting, character and plot. Resources are tailored to different levels, but some of the higher-level content would be more appropriate for ages 7 and up.

Matthew recently visited Pudsey Grangefield School, in Leeds, to talk about his career and offer his advice to students who wanted to go into acting. A video from the day has been posted by Into Film, an organization that gives every child and young person aged 5 to 19 in the UK the chance to experience film creatively.
In the video above, Matt says:
“I think that films are an exceptional medium for all kinds of things, particularly education. Art in all of its forms is often a recreation of real life; an experience; it can tell stories. Whether it’s a portrait or it’s a piece of music, they’re all capable of telling wonderful stories and teaching life lessons, and film as an extension of that is the greatest medium for it.”
Don’t forget to buy one of his Neville Longbottom themed t-shirt to support children’s charities!
