John Humphrys: You're doomed to be known as Harry Potter's sidekick, are't you? I mean that's got to be the case.
Matt Lewis: I'm quite lucky really, in terms of my character is - well I'd like to think that he looks quite a bit different to me. I have to wear a fat suit in the films and my hair is much longer.
John: You do look a bit pudgier in the films, it must be said.
Matt: Well I've got rid of the fat suit in the film, I won't be wearing it this year."
John: Really? Why's that?
Matt: In the book he sort of becomes a bit of a resistance leader, he's leading Dumbledore's Army, so yeah, a bit of evolution throughout the series.
