Matt’s interview from de.paperblog.com
Ragna: “What is your opinion about the props going on big tour so that everybody can see them? It’s like a little look behind the scenes and a look behind a big part of your life. What’s your opinion about that?”
Matthew Lewis: “Well, I think it’s brilliant. You know, we finished filming four years ago. To come here today and going to the Exhibition… it just takes me back to that time. Melting to that world, that’s so wonderful. It’s weird and so incredible to have so many fans around the world. Having Fans in England, that’s crazy, but having fans in Germany it is like: WOW! I think it is great that we can take the things out to the fans and show them the props in this Exhibition.”
Ragna: “What do you think is the coolest and most awesome prop here?”
Matthew Lewis: “In my opinion, all Neville-Stuff is pretty cool. To see my costume and the probs it reminds me of the great time. I love the Quidditch Stuff – to play the quaffel is very cool. I love sport, I’m a big sport fan. Quidditch is a whole concept. I love it.”
Ragna: “How does it feel that people on the street only connect you with Neville Longbottom rather than with Matthew Lewis?”
Matthew Lewis: “Well, I’m quite fortunate actually that since Harry Potter finished I’ve been doing a lot of different stuff and a lot of this has been in british Television. Not really in other countries. So in England I come away from Neville and do other stuff, different from Neville. The roles I’ve been getting are far away from Neville. When you make a program or a film for ten years you always gonna be associated with. It could be worse. The character of Neville is a fantastic character. I wouldn’t be able to do the shows at the West end in London when I wouldn’t have acted as Neville before.”
Ragna: “Are you in contact to the main cast from Harry Potter?”
Matthew Lewis: “Yes, I spoke to Emma (Watson) last week. I was talking to her about her UN – “HeForShe” - campaign, which is wonderful. I think it’s brilliant, you know it’s incredible. Her speech was mind blowing and she texted me and asked me if I could send her a picture for her campaign. So I did that for her and I spoke to Dan last month. Well, it’s difficult to see each other, because we are all around the world doing different stuff, but we are still in contact with each other and I might even go play football with Oliver Felton at some point when I am back next month.”
Ragna: “If you could be a wizard yourself: what would be the one thing you would desire the most to conjure?”
Matthew Lewis: “Ibuprofen! I drank too much last night. Too much Kölsch. There are simple pleasures, like Pizza and Ibuprofen.”
Ragna: “How was it to play sort of a loser (Neville Longbottom)?”
Matthew Lewis: “I think everybody on the planet is capable of incredible things and people get put down by all other people and society and that’s getting in the way, but everybody is capable of incredible things. Everybody has that inside of them, and so to be able to play that. This journey that someone who wasn’t a complete loser, but bullied and shy and you know that other stuff, to be able to take him on that journey and to show everybody what’s in Neville. I was so privileged and I still get fan-mails from people, who say that Neville helped them through tough times, crises in life or bulling at school. To read that a job that you have done, as an actor, has inspired people, is just great.”

Matthew Lewis has completed filming a project in the Caribbean a few weeks ago which he had to keep it secret. Today, it has been confirmed by Multitude Media and Radio Times that Matt will be a guest star in BBC One Death in Paradise series 4.
Death in Paradise is a crime drama created by Robert Thorogood. The drama is about a detective inspector who is assigned to investigate a murder on the paradise island of Saint-Marie in the Caribbean.
As the series returns, the endearingly clumsy but brilliant DI Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) is struggling to contain his feelings for DS Camille Bordey (Sara Martins), who in turn finds herself battling the dating scene - all thanks to her well meaning mother. Officer Dwayne Myers (Danny John-Jules) attempts to hold the fort following the departure of Sergeant Fidel Best (Gary Carr), who has left Saint Marie for a new job on a neighbouring island.
But Comm. Selwyn Patterson (Don Warrington) is keen to step up and exercise his investigative muscles once again, much to Dwayne’s frustration. The police department also welcomes new recruit, Sergeant Florence Cassell, played by popular French actress Josephine Jobert (Sous Le Soleil De Saint-Tropez).
Death in Paradise returns to BBC One in early 2015.
