In 2001, Matthew Lewis slipped into the role of Neville Long bottom for the first time. At that time he was only twelve years old. Today the actor celebrates his 30th birthday – and is hardly recognizable.
He appeared in the first part of the “Harry Potter” magic saga – and Matthew Lewis also appeared in all the other films. The then twelve-year-old played the role of Neville Long bottom. The clumsy wizard student with the Pausbäckchen, the rabbit teeth and the slightly crooked mouth played quickly into the hearts of the fans, a heartthrob but he was not.
Today, however, the world looks different again. 18 years have passed since “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”. Matthew Lewis has changed a lot over time. In fact, the now 30-year-old has become a real eye-catcher.
The round Babyface is today distinctive, the bacon rolls disappeared. Instead, his body is toned, he has his teeth straightened. Of the dub in the film is not much left today.
After his role in “Harry Potter” Matthew Lewis has participated in other films. Among other things, he was seen in “A Whole Half Year”. Currently he plays in the TV series “Girlfriends”. Privately, it is also successful for the British. Last year the actor got married. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Angela Jones.
