The Transformation of Matthew Lewis

I, as you may know am an avid Harry Potter fan, books first and then films. And previously my Hogwarts guy of choice would be Rupert Grint. I have a not so secret thing for gingers! However this as the title suggest isn’t an article on my love for Rupert but of my new love for Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom in the series. I was pleasantly surprised after I saw him at the New York Première at how much he had grown up. He was like the best friend you have known all your life coming back from a holiday and you seeing them in a completely new light. So I wanted to take a look back of his life so far in stills, just so we can figure out the tell tale signs, so we aren’t too surprised when one of our own friends comes back from a break all gorgeous looking.

So basically in the last 10 years we have gone from this, very cute little boy:

To this, most gorgeous young man:

So look out for the guy you know who:

  • Lost some weight
  • Tried lot’s of styles with his hair
  • Wasn’t the centre of attention
  • Always smiling
  • The guy you would think of as the ‘friend’

You never know what people will grow up to be like, but I think this is also fantastic for Matthew’s career, unlike the rest of the Potter characters, I feel he has completely left his character at Hogwarts and can now establish him self as the great actor we have only glimpsed. So I will be most anticipating The Sweet Shop in 2013!
