Aren’t they cute?! I found this at Gigei’s Deviantart page and just had to share it!
It’s images like this one that makes you glad to have Twitter and be able to follow actors, especially when they’re willing to share part of their experiences. Matthew Lewis (@Mattdavelewis), who played Neville Longbottom, was able to do just that with this tweet. Can you name them all?
If you can (without looking at the tags, of course), 100 points to your house! Just comment below.

Today’s July 30, Neville Longbottom’s birthday. Let’s celebrate!!!
Matthew Lewis was presented with an honorary degree from Leeds Metropolitan University!
According to BBC:
The 23-year-old actor, who was born and raised in the city, received the honour for his contribution to the arts and his charity work.
In 2010, he helped launch a cancer screening suite at St James’s Hospital in Leeds, and last year he joined the Leeds 10km walk for local charity, the Martin House Hospice.
The actor said: “I still live in Leeds and to be acknowledged in this way is quite overwhelming.”
We are so proud of Lewis’ great work! He’s not the only one being honored this week. Others include England Rugby Union head coach Stuart Lancaster, fashion designer Wayne Hemingway, Olympic torch designer Edward Barber and chairman of Huddersfield Town, Dean Hoyle.

Matthew Lewis, who we all know and love as Neville Longbottom in the HP Movie Franchise, is making his debut on London’s West End!
According to Broadway.com,
“…Our Boys is the story of five young soldiers whose daily routine of TV, lonely hearts ads and lighthearted banter is shattered when a young officer arrives from Sandhurst. The soldiers’ friendship is jeopardized by a dangerous incident and an act of betrayal. With charges of misconduct looming, accusations fly—and the fighting really begins.”
The production will play in a 15-week limited engagement.
What do you think, Londoners? Will you go see Matthew in his newest roll?
