To promote the new Warner Bros studio tour in Tokyo, a cast member from the original Harry Potter movies had the opportunity to explore some famous Hogwarts sets.
Matthew Lewis, known for his role as Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter movies, recently took a delightful trip down memory lane. Lewis portrayed the character of Neville throughout the film series, starting with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in 2001 and concluding with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 in 2011. Neville initially appeared as a nerdy and forgetful secondary character but later played a crucial role in the battle against the dark lord Voldemort, rising to prominence.
Lewis recently took to Instagram to share his visit to significant sets from the Harry Potter movies, allowing fans to join him in revisiting those memorable locations.
Lewis’s post on Instagram serves as a promotional video for the new Warner Bros tour in Tokyo, which features meticulously recreated iconic sets from the Harry Potter movies. While the tour includes more sets, Lewis’s teaser video specifically showcases his visit to the Gryffindor common room, the Hogwarts stairwell, and the school’s library, evoking a sense of nostalgia for fans of the magical franchise.
What Matthew Lewls Has Done Since Harry Potter
Lewis dedicated an entire decade to the Harry Potter franchise, fully immersed in its world. However, once the series concluded, he ventured into various other significant roles. While he now balances his time between movies and television, one of his notable appearances was in the widely known 2016 romance film, Me Before You. In the movie, he portrayed the character of Patrick, the envious boyfriend of Lou, portrayed by Emilia Clarke. Patrick’s presence creates complications in Lou’s relationship with Will, played by Sam Claflin.
In 2016, Lewis landed one of his initial notable television roles in the detective drama Ripper Street. He portrayed the character of Sgt. “Drum” Drummond, making his debut in the fourth season and continuing to portray the character in the subsequent season. Following that, he appeared in seven episodes of the James Herriot adaptation All Creatures Great and Small, which premiered on Channel 5 in 2020. These television roles have allowed Lewis to showcase his talent and expand his repertoire beyond his Harry Potter days.
While Lewis will always be remembered for his iconic role in the Harry Potter franchise, he has been actively exploring diverse characters and projects. As he continues to expand his repertoire and take on different roles, he is likely to discover new roles that resonate with audiences. This video demonstrates his willingness to revisit his past and embrace his younger years, but it is just a glimpse into the larger scope of his career. Neville is just one facet of Lewis’ multifaceted journey, and he still has many exciting opportunities ahead of him.
