Matt Lewis, known in the Harry Potter family as hero Neville Longbottom, has found joy in some of his new post-Potter projects. We are delighted for him. Matt sat down with What’s on TV to talk about his role in the show, Ripper Street. He also described much of the environment on set and finding acceptance from the cast and crew of the well established show.

Talking of his character with What’s on TV, Matt said:


“Sergeant Samuel Drummond is a new desk sergeant at the new police station and he is basically part of a new generation of police officer who are involved with a lot more of the science and technological side of modern day policing.

“So he’s in control of the telegram, the micro reader and the telephone systems and makes sure everyone uses these new ideas that are supposed to make the Met much more effiecient. But he’s also got a lot to learn, he’s just out of police academy or whatever, he’s a bit green.”
