Neville Longbottom Actor Is In Oz Tomorrow

One of the stars of the Harry Potter film series, actor Matthew Lewis who plays the pivotal role of horticulturally-inclined geek boy Neville Longbottom, is going to be in Australia tomorrow for a preview of Harry Potter: The Exhibition which is set to launch at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum in November.

While it goes without saying that the final – and box office record breaking – installment of the movie series Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 is centred around Harry played by Daniel Radcliffe, the real breakout star of the movie is arguably Neville/Matt Lewis.

After putting in a series of public appearances sporting some awe-inspiring dental work and a wardrobe of designer suits, Lewis has boarded the Hogwart’s Express on a one-way journey to Sex Symbol Town.


Neville Longbottom fans and stalkers alike are advised to skulk around the Powerhouse Museum as of tomorrow morning if you want to catch a glimpse of Nev. NB Don’t look for him in the Room of Requirement as it does not exist.

Harry Potter: The Exhibition will open at the Powerhouse Museum on 19 November 2011 to 18 March 2012. Tickets are on sale Tuesday 19 July 2011 from
