Over the weekend, actor Matt Lewis took part in the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo in Canada.  TLC reader and PotterCast listener Kevin emailed to say that while there, Matt spoke about his role as Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films, noting that he will be enjoying the summer off, but will be back to film scenes again in October for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Matt also said he cant speak to where the films split, but has read the script for Deathly Hallows Part One and loved it and said something along the lines of "if there even is a part for Neville's Gran in the movies he would want Dame Judi Dench to play her - although his first choice, if she wasn't already in the movies, would be Maggie Smith."  He also spoke briefly about Neville's look in Deathly Hallows as being a "a leaner, meaner, rock and roll Neville," and is very much looking forward to shooting the dramatic Nagini and the sword scene. Finally Matt Lewis enjoyed the fact that Neville ended up as a Herbology Professor as he thiks Neville belongs in a school, and reflected that his "biggest wish about the last book was that Neville had killed Bellatrix but also admits that that's not really Neville's style."

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was also a topic, as Matt Lewis said the fans will love the movie. He also pointed out that "although Half Blood Prince has a horrible ending it is quite a funny movie, thanks mostly to Rupert Grint's Qudditch and love-struck scenes."

One fun note: Matt Lewis treated a lucky fan to a Waltz lesson aka just like he danced so nicely in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Editor's Note: A reminder that you can follow Matt Lewis and all his adventures here via his official Twitter.

Thanks so much Kevin!

Calgary, eh? That where I was raised for most of my life. Too bad I am not living there anymore, and I could have easily go there and see him there! I live in British Columbia now. I do look forward to Matt’s scene of slaying Nagini with the sword! It’s good to know that it’ll be in it!

i agree with matt, we all wish neville killed bellatrix but like harry, he is not one to use the killing curse on someone. i can’t wait to see him kill nagini! that was one of my favorite parts of deathly hallows!

I’m always dreaming Judi Dench will play as Aunt Muriel.

I think Judi Dench would be awsome as Neville’s Gran. She’s such a great actress.
