Neville Longbottom Is Shirtless in a New TV Show, and His Abs Are Riddikulus
Neville Longbottom, aka actor Matthew Lewis, had arguably the greatest glow-up of all the Harry Potter stars, transforming from a nerdy young wizard to a sword-wielding snake-slayer in the final movie. But if you thought that seventh-year Neville was hot, you better prepare yourself for 28-year-old real-life Matthew Lewis and his rock-hard abs.
The actor stars in a new British TV show, Girlfriends, as Tom, the troublesome son of the lead character, and according to Lewis, he’s “fresh out of prison.” He appears for a hot second in the trailer (shirtless!) and the Internet proceeded to freak out. I mean, with one look at those defined pecs, it’s hard not to see why.
His shirtless moment isn’t the only reason to get excited about Lewis’s new show: He reunites with a former Harry Potter co-star in the series. His character’s mom, Gail, is played by none other than Zoë Wanamaker, who was Madam Hooch in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Talk about a full-circle moment.
