Actor Matt Lewis joins us as he discusses his role as Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films. We have a great discussion on Umbridge, Luna, the new-do Neville, and much more. In this show:
Show Notes:
- Sue tries not to deafen him!
- Matt says Neville “rapidly changes throughout [film five],” while we see that Harry is “not invincible.” He says he’s working harder than ever before, closely with the trio and Ginny.
- Differences between screenwriters Kloves and Goldenberg (“He’s American, for a start.”)
- The struggle over how to say “I killed Harry Potter!” in the fourth film
- Matt on taking down Bellatrix: “I’ll do my best.”
- Revisiting the scene from movie four where Neville reacts to the idea of his parents’ torture. (“I wanted to get that so right.”)
- David Yates, the director of the fifth Potter film, and how coaxes a performance out of an actor. “He believes no one knows more about the character than the person who’s played him for the past five years,” says Matt.
- Imelda Staunton plays evil professor Dolores Umbridge as “cruel, twisted and slightly mental…she’s plotting how she’s going to kill you later on, when your back is turned.”
- Teasing about the World Cup commences
- “Yo Queen, how you doin’?” (says Matt)
- Also in the show:John’s away for the opening and closing of the show, so the girls play.
- The PodcastAwards are closed – thank you for the votes! (Edit – now we know we won, thank you so much! We’ll talk about it next week!)
- Jo in New York, Jo on the street, Jo everywhere!
- Phoenix Rising, conventions and fan events
- The mailbag is back!
- How did Hagrid get to Godric’s Hollow?
- The mirror Sidekick
- How did Dumbledore do magic at 4 Privet Drive in book six without getting Harry in trouble?
- Dumbledore and his purple suit getting great reservations at restaurants
- YouTube fun!
- Sue as Arabella Figg!
