Matthew Lewis. The “11” number on my arm. It was my number when I played sports. And I have a feather tattooed on the other arm. Everyone thinks it’s a reference to ‘Harry Potter’, but it’s not. I was just very drunk one evening in Germany. I followed a friend, and the next morning, I woke up with this tattoo!

The biggest star you met?
Matthew Lewis. Paul MCCARTNEY! That was in 2010, on my birthday. I went to his concert in Hyde Park, and I was invited to the after-party. It was a very intimate evening. I spoke for a long time with his drummer, and suddenly, out of nowhere, he asked where the toilet was. No sound came out of my mouth. When he came out of the toilet, he wished me a happy birthday. It was during the World Cup and England had just lost against Germany, so we drank and drowned our sorrow together.
