Matthew Lewis talks Harry Potter 7, IMAX, and weird fans
Yesterday, we were proud to welcome Leeds-based actor Matthew Lewis to the Museum -- for two reasons.
One: so Matthew -- who plays Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films -- could watch Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince on our colossal IMAX screen, and cower in the shadow of his 5 metre-tall screen counterpart.
Two: so a gaggle of starstruck children (and at least three besotted and blushing teenage girls) had their chance to sit and chat with one of the heroes of the wizarding world -- and, incidentally, one of the nicest young men you could ever hope to meet.
Matthew took a seat in our Cubby Broccoli cinema for an exclusive interview with us about all things Harry Potter -- including the hugely-anticipated final two films in the series, due for release in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Click the play button above to watch it.
And if you haven't seen Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince yet, our IMAX page has all the information you need.
