Matt Lewis Attends Launch of Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Sydney


Jul 19, 2011

Posted by Mel

Matt Lewis (Neville Longbottom) took some time away from promoting “Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ to attend the launch of Harry Potter: The Exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia:

At the end of a short video presentation about the exhibition a screen
dropped and Matthew appeared with the blue Ford Anglia (from Chamber of Secrets) behind a cloud of smoke. Wearing a Rabbitohs jersey, the actor, famous for his portrayal of Neville Longbottom,
explained to fans what they can expect from the exhibition: “I brought
my own wand, some of Neville’s costumes. We’ve got the mandrakes and you
can pull the mandrakes out of the pot like Neville ” hopefully you
won’t faint like Neville.” He also said that he prefers seeing the props
that weren’t connected to his character “because I can go and see that
stuff as a fan.”
