Actor Matt Lewis, who portrays Neville Longbottom, has given a new interview where he discusses working with various cast members, new and old, for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Readers will recall that TLC first told you actor Domhnall Gleeson (photos here) would be playing the part of Bill Weasley in Deathly Hallows. In this new interview with Matt speaks to working with cast members such as Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix) again, as well as Domhnall and his father, acclaimed actor Brendan Gleeson (Mad- Eye Moody):

Megan: Which new actors cast in Deathly Hallows are you looking forward to working with?
Matt: Hmm, I don't really know of many of the new since I've only worked with Dan, Rupert and Emma so far.
Matt: Do you know of some that are new and I'll tell you if I'm looking forward to working with them ;)
Megan: I'll take a look haha
Megan: Helen Mcrory will be playing Draco's mom
Megan: and Domhnall Gleeson will be playing Bill Weasley
Matt: Oh yea, Helen McRory for sure because she was supposed to be in OotP but I believe was pregnant so had to cancel
Megan: Yea, but I think that Helena was a better Bellatrix and she is more suited for Narcissa
Megan: so i guess it turned out for the best
Matt: Helena Bonham Carter stepped in and was fantastic but I am looking forward to working with Helen McRory
Megan: yea, she seems really nice
Matt: Absolutely, you're right
Matt: Brendan Gleeson for me is one of the most fantastic people I have ever worked with
Matt: He's just such a nice guy and so talented
Megan: Yea and he seems pretty funny too
Matt: So I'm sure his son will be equally as great

Thanks so much Megan!

Helena Bonham Carter will not be in DH? She was a marvelous Bellatrix. Oh well, I might go read the rest of the interview.

Nice tid-bit. But not really telling.

@ TheSortingHat Where do they say that Helena Bonham-Carter won’t be in DH? I read from that tidbit that they originally thought of casting Helen McRory as Bellatrix and Helena Bonham-Carter (or someone else??) as Narcissa, but then Helen McRory was pregnant when they filmed OOTP so they cast Bonham-Carter as Bellatrix instead and are now casting Helen McRory as Narcissa. That’s how I interpreted that anyway…

Mat Lewis may have seemed like he got the raw end of the deal with almost every movie, always ahving smaller parts etc…DH must have made him happy when he read it!
