HollywoodNews.com: Matthew Lewis doesn’t just play a heroic do-gooder in the Harry Potter films: after launching new cancer research scanning equipment at St. James’s Hospital yesterday, he’s proven his real-life heroism as well.
Lewis, who will play Neville Longbottom in the upcoming two-part “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”, spoke to the Yorkshire Evening Post about the cutting-edge cancer-fighting equipment’s purpose, saying, “I don’t think there is anyone in the country that knows anyone who hasn’t been affected by cancer.”
Dr. Andrew Scarsbrook, a radiologist and nuclear medicine physician for the company behind the equipment, calls the launching “a vital step in taking cancer care in Yorkshire to the highest level.”
Matthew also shed some light on what he’s brought to Neville’s character development in the final two films, explaining, “It has been more of a challenge each year to bring a little bit more as Neville’s character grows. He has become a reckless resistance leader with no concerns for his own safety. He wants to do the right thing.”
We’ll get to see him lead the forces of good into battle when Part Two is released next July. The first part of “Deathly Hallows” hits theaters in November of this year.
