Matt Lewis Talks Neville and "Deathly Hallows"

Actor Matthew Lewis appeared at Collectormania in Manchester England over the weekend, where he discussed his role at Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter movies. Snitchseeker.com reports that along with his brother Anthony (Torchwood), Matt made several comments about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. He was asked about filming the dramatic scene at the end of the book involving Neville, Nagini and the sword, and Matt apparently said “Oh yeah. It’ll be really cool but I’m going to have to have lots of training. We did with Order of the Phoenix and using the wands but this one is going to be much more extensive.” (His brother joked in response ””There’d have to be for anyone to trust him with a sword.”)

Of interest in the report as well is that Matt apparently said that Deathly Hallows would be made in two movies. This follows on many of the rumors we’ve heard previously, and we heard last month, the producers of the film said this possibility is being explored, but is STILL NOT CONFIRMED. Again, as exciting as all this is, the producers of the Harry Potter films, David Barron and David Heyman, have said filming on “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” would begin next February, and an announcement confirming the director and the film would be forthcoming in the near future. Stay tuned, we will update with more when we can.

Thanks much to Laurie and Snitchseeker!

Can’t wait for the scene with Nagini. Matt is awesome as Neville! This was one of my favourite parts of the book. It’s good to know he’s getting training/preped for the scene so it’ll be done properly.

I AM SO EXCITED FOR NEVILLE TO BE A BEAST! This scene in the book made me so happy that he finally got a chance to really shine and show what he’s made of. :)
