Matt Lewis Talks Neville and Nagini in New Interview

Lewis Interviews

Actor Matt Lewis has given a new interview where he briefly mentions his role as Neville Longbottom in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films. In a online chat held over the weekend, Matt says he has still not yet seen the script for the films which are due to start filming on the 15th of this month, but says he is looking forward to a couple scenes, in particular the dramatic events at the end of the book in the final battle against Voldemort and his followers. Matt responds to several questions on Deathly Hallows, one regarding his favorite Neville moment in Book Seven, and what it is like to play a character so pivotal to the plot line of the book:

Matt Lewis: Deathly Hallows is going to be so much fun to shoot. I don't have a script yet, so I can't be exactly sure how everything is going to work out. However, I think my answer will be a bit predictable! The scene I'm looking forward to the most is when Neville swings the sword and kills Nagini. That is going to be intense! In fact, the whole final battle sequence is going to be amazing. Still can't believe they're going to trust me with a sword though!
...

 "It's got to be the sword swinging, snake killing bit I'm looking forward to most. I guess that's pretty "kick-butt." I'm really excited about it. I got a taste for the action side of things in Order of the Phoenix and I can't wait to do some more!

...
It gives me a great sense of responsibility. I know what the books meant to me when I read them and I imagine the films can mean the same to people and so it's very important to get it right. Playing a character that has such a crucial role in how the story develops is inspiring and I'm very excited about it- I just have to make sure I don't mess it up!

Aw dam how come we didn’t hear of this? I wanted to hear how depressed Matt has become, from one Leeds United fan to another :( Tough times!

kind of a no brainer what his most anticapated scene would be, that being said the scene should be awesome and i know matt will nail it err slice it? lol. as for him not getting a script yet for part one its not that big of deal as neville doesn’t apper in DH until the chapters leading up to the battle of Hogwarts and i cannot expect any other them willbe inthe first part as its my belief they will split it at the point Ron leave or when he comes back

They’d better leave Neville’s scenes in. I loved learning about how much of a Potter fan Matt is from Harry, A History.

Go Neville. I’m going to find it difficult not to cheer when he lops Nagini’s head off – maybe should save that for when I have it on DVD and am watching it at home.
