Wikipedia Files: Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom)

This week, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 hits a theater near you. The movie is the final installment in the Harry Potter film series.

In Chicago, fans have been lining up at midnight and selling out theaters all day to catch their favorite characters, one last time. One of those characters is Neville Longbottom. Longbottom is played by English actor Matthew Lewis. Matthew is in town promoting the film (and getting his name in the gossip columns).

We caught up with Matthew Lewis today to fact-check his Wikipedia Page. He tells us about rugby, punctured ear drums and his love affair with the number 11.


As a bonus, on Thursday evening, WBEZ followed Lewis as he surprised fans at the AMC River East who were about to see a double feature -- Harry Potter and the Deathy Hallows Part 1, and the new Part 2.
