This child actor has been acting since he was 5 years old and now at 23 and “all grown up,” he has definitely grew into his looks! I had no idea who this was and saw a picture of him posted on OMG Blog and finally realized who it was. He played an awkward-looking, orphan in a famous movie franchise that you’ve definitely seen.
In a recent interview with The Yorkshire Post, he talked about having to wear a fat suit and fake teeth for his role. “It just helps with the whole image of [his character]” says the actor. “He’s not supposed to look like Brad Pitt, the character is described in the book as being very round-faced. But from the third film onwards they started sticking the fat suit on because I just grew up. I simply grew taller and thinned out. As for the teeth, it was something I’d always wanted to do but it would have meant me wearing a brace for two years, which I just couldn’t do. In fact Warner Brothers said if I put it off until we’d finished filming they’d pay for it – and they did. But they were always keen for me to look less than perfect.”
It’s Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter (or Matt Lewis in real life). Of course they used fake teeth and a fat suit to make him fugly, but still! Like I said, he definitely grew into his looks.
Recently while at a press conference promoting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Lewis announced that he had to step out because he really had to pee. LOL. That’s definitely something I would do. Check out the funny moment below:
