Pictures of Neville Longbottom Actor Matthew Lewis at Harry Potter: The Exhibition Launch at Powerhouse Museum Sydney

Matthew Lewis Kicks Off Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Sydney

Matthew Lewis landed in Sydney yesterday at the tail-end of his huge world tour to promote Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II. This morning he made a special appearance at the Powerhouse Museum for the launch of Harry Potter: The Exhibition, which will be open to the public from November. (In attendance were media and a group of young children dressed in Gryffindor costumes.) At the end of a short video presentation about the exhibition a screen dropped and Matthew appeared with the blue Ford Anglia (from Chamber of Secrets) behind a cloud of smoke. Wearing a Rabbitohs jersey, the actor, famous for his portrayal of Neville Longbottom, explained to fans what they can expect from the exhibition: “I brought my own wand, some of Neville’s costumes. We’ve got the mandrakes and you can pull the mandrakes out of the pot like Neville — hopefully you won’t faint like Neville.” He also said that he prefers seeing the props that weren’t connected to his character “because I can go and see that stuff as a fan.”

Matt’s other exhibition highlights include Hagrid’s hut and “stuff that you don’t appreciate in the film: things, little details that a lot of effort has gone into, like the programs from the Quidditch World Cup, which you get to see for a second in the film.” After addressing the crowd, Matt took some questions from the young uniformed students and later met with an excited group of older fans who had lined up to see the star. Unlike the busy schedule he’s had leading up to his trip Down Under, which has seen him go from cities like London, New York, Toronto and Chicago in a matter of days, he’ll have some down time during his Australia stay.
