Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) helped to unveil new medical equipment aimed at fighting cancer at St James's Hospital in Leeds:

The new £3.5m scanning suite was launched by Horsforth-born Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films, at St James's Hospital.
The PET CT Centre, the largest of its kind in the north, houses a new research scanner and diagnostic imaging scanner to replace the mobile unit at Seacroft Hospital.
The scanner takes images of the structures of the body and can help diagnose cancer and even show whether a lump is cancerous.
Matthew said: "I don't think there is anyone in the country that knows anyone who hasn't been affected by cancer.
"This great city is on the front line of that war."

Lewis also goes on to discuss his feelings on completing "Deathly Hallows" as well as his feelings on Neville:

"It's not sunk in yet and I don't think it will until the last film is out in July 2011. It has been great.
"I played a character I thought was brilliant to begin with and it was good to play an endearing person that people really relate to – I related to him when I read the books.
"It has been more of a challenge each year to bring a little bit more as Neville's character grows.
"He has become a reckless resistance leader with no concerns for his own safety. He wants to do the right thing."

I am so glad that Matt Lewis said “He [Neville] has become a reckless resistance leader with no concerns for his own safety. He wants to do the right thing.” That tells me that they will be showing that side of Neville in Deathly Hallows. Epic.

Matt is a real cool guy. It’s true that most everyone knows someone affected by cancer so, it’s a great thing that he’s getting involved and talking about it.
