Matt Lewis Attends Launch of Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Sydney

Matt Lewis (Neville Longbottom) took some time away from promoting "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" to attend the launch of Harry Potter: The Exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia:

At the end of a short video presentation about the exhibition a screen dropped and Matthew appeared with the blue Ford Anglia (from Chamber of Secrets) behind a cloud of smoke. Wearing a Rabbitohs jersey, the actor, famous for his portrayal of Neville Longbottom, explained to fans what they can expect from the exhibition: “I brought my own wand, some of Neville’s costumes. We’ve got the mandrakes and you can pull the mandrakes out of the pot like Neville — hopefully you won’t faint like Neville.” He also said that he prefers seeing the props that weren’t connected to his character “because I can go and see that stuff as a fan.”

You can read the rest of the article here. Harry Potter: The Exhibition is currently hosted by Discovery Times Square in New York City. The Exhibition will open at the Powerhouse Museum November 19th. You can purchase your tickets here.

Saw the exhibition in New York and now I’ll get to see it again in Sydney! By the way the Rabbitohs are an Australian football team. :)
