March 2008 – Collectormania
Quotes from Matt at the Collectormania in Manchester, and also quotes from fans about Matt.
Matt Lewis: “I’m just going to have some water… See, give me a microphone and I feel the need to tell everyone everything I’m doing.” Anthony Lewis: (reads label off of bottle of water) Matt Lewis: “The best a man can get.” *satisfied gasp*
Anthony Lewis: I was in a bar two nights ago and I saw Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort). It was weird to see him with a nose!
Matt Lewis: Did you call him Ralph or Rayf?
Anthony: (laughs) I was tempted to call him Ralph!
Matt: Doesn’t he behead people for that?
Matt: Oh yeah. It’ll be really cool but I’m going to have to have lots of training. We did with Order of the Phoenix and using the wands but this one is going to be much more extensive.
Anthony: There’d have to be for anyone to trust him with a sword.
Matthew was lovely. He wrote a birthday message on the photo he signed for me. Would love to meet him again! A very good birthday indeed today!
Once again, the nicest guy on the Harry Potter block gave us a treat from the revealing of Neville’s deadly weapon to the inordinately large amount of time spent chatting with fans about the books, the films and the merchandise.
He said he was filming [Half-Blood Prince] and would still be called back for more shoots up until September, Release in November. what’s more is he confirmed that Deathly Hallows would be 2 films.
I was his guest assistant today and he made me feel so comfortable! I was practically glowing when I left. He’s such a great guy. He spent time chatting to EVERY SINGLE FAN, he tried to make conversation even with the ones who were too shy to speak and initiate it themselves.
And I got fangirled by him! He went “Oh my god, are you Neville?! Can I have a photo?” and took a photo of me with his phone!
