Matthew Lewis Talks About Neville’s Growth in Deathly Hallows

By Hanako M. Ricks

HollywoodNews.com: Gone is the false teeth, the exaggerated ears, and the fat suit – Neville Longbottom in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is no one to mess with.

Fans of the Harry Potter series know that Neville Longbottom hits his stride in Hallows, when he steps up to take the leadership role for Dumbledore’s Army in the absence of Harry, Ron and Hermione. We learn that Neville becomes hero and protector during the tumultuous seventh year, protecting the female and younger students from tortured discipline as the students rebel when known Death Eaters have been placed in positions at Hogwarts.

Neville’s portrayer, Matthew Lewis, talks about the change his character has gone through over the years, and how Neville has evolved.

“Having started when I was 11 years old, Neville was shy and vulnerable, who was pushed around, bullied and was very nervous.

“Over the years, he has more depth and can stand up more for himself. In the seventh one, he’s almost a completely changed man. He’s a reckless resistance leader who wants to go and fight, and do the right thing. He’s become more heroic, he’s got heart, courage and loyalty. He’s still not perfect, but he comes through where it counts.”

We will get to see Neville’s growth and maturity when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is released; Part 1 is due in theaters on November 19, 2010, followed by the final film (Part 2) on July 15, 2011.
