Matthew Lewis (born 1989) is an English actor best known for playing Neville Longbottom in the ''Film/HarryPotter'' series. He had some minor television roles before trying out for Neville. He had been a Harry Potter fan for a while, and liked Neville, so when it came time to audition, he based his performance on Neville. Once he got the part, Matthew Lewis became popular with HP fans, especially as Neville TookALevelInBadass. When he is not playing Neville, Lewis enjoys soccer/football, cricket, and computer games. He is also a frequent sight on the convention circuit.

!!Roles Of Note:
* ''Film/HarryPotter'' (2001-2011) as Neville Longbottom
* ''Series/{{Bluestone42}}'' (2013-present) as Corporal Gordon "Towerblock" House

----
!!Associated Tropes:
* {{Adorkable}}: Comes off this way rather sweetly in interviews.
* AscendedExtra
* BeautifulAllAlong: He has received quite an EnsembleDarkhorse very recently at how attractive he is, since he's no longer had to wear a FatSuit in the movies and got his teeth fixed.
* {{Cosplay}}: Yes, he does it. [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_loyd11AXL41qe5akho1_500.jpg Here's a picture]] of him as [[Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet the Johnny Depp version of Sweeney Todd]].
* FanservicePack
* OneOfUs: He has read the books, and it's obvious in the interviews that he has in-depth knowledge of his character and the book in general.
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Subverted trope. Matthew Lewis had a bigger physical transformation than any of the other cast members, and as a result he was made up to look like his goofy [[spoiler: Later {{Badass}}]] character in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. It was later shown that he was quite handsome under all the costumes.
* NotSoSmallRole: Had relatively bit parts in ''Film/HarryPotter'' for the first couple of movies. Later on ended up becoming a pretty central character to the plot, and series.
* PermaStubble: Sports a 5'O clock shadow most of the time.
* PromotedFanboy: Was a big fan of the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series before getting cast as Neville.
* SexyManInstantHarem: Seems quite befuddled by the overwhelmingly large amount of female attention that has recently come his way.
* SharpDressedMan: At premiers, and in general.
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* ThrowItIn
