Matt Lewis on Neville's Grandmother, Animagi, WWoHP and More at London Film and Comic Con

Lewis Interviews

An attendee at London Film and Comic Con has carefully transcribed the Q&A session with Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom). Lewis was a guest speaker at the event over the weekend and covered a wide range of topics from co-stars, fun off set and memories from his time on the Harry Potter film. Lewis says of Neville's grandmother, "[there] is a lady who has been cast as his nan. I have met her on set. That's all I can say." When asked whether Neville cuts off Nagini's head, as in the book, Lewis responds, "all I can say is that we've stuck to the book as much as possible."

The Neville Longbottom actor described watching Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore) watch his own moving portrait at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter as "the most surreal thing" and said that the theme park attraction was "unbelievable."

You can read the full transcript of the Q&A session on Tumblr at this link.

Thanks to for the heads up!

This was really good. I’m seriously hoping that we get to see him with the sword, but was saddened to see how close they got to showing Peeves : (

If Neville doesn’t cut off Nagini’s head…that will be so wrong.

That youg lady did a great job capturing Matt’s words on paper. I can’t imagine guys having fun hitting their groins, but it does fit the “Weasely twins’” sense of humour! I hope Dana nd Neville at least get a copy of the sword!

I look at it this way- no MacVoldemort, no snake. And since the movie can’t end differently from the book.. well, just draw your own conclusions.

PS MacVoldemort= The Scottish Lord that must not be named.

Oh, I’ve always pictured Patricia Routledge (Keeping Up Appearances) as Neville’s Gran! She’s be PERFECT…but I’m sure whoever is chosen will be wonderful!

Harry pulled off the cloak and seized the letter. Written in narrow, loopy writing he had never seen before were the following words: [i]Your father left this in my possession before he died. It is time it was returned to you. Use it well.[/i]
