This one is for all of our fellow Matthew Lewis (a.k.a. Neville Longbottom) fans—those who have been on board since the beginning after being drawn in by Matthew’s roly poly adorableness at age 12 in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” and those who jumped on the bandwagon in a big way after seeing photos of Matthew all grown-up at last year’s premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.”
We’ve lost count of the number of “Matt Lewis Is A Total Hottie”-themed fan pages that have been created since, but we’re doing our part as well. MTV News was lucky enough to get our hands and eyes on a batch of brand new photos of the one-time Hump Day Hottie looking very grown-up and smoldery.
The photos were taken by acclaimed London-based photographer Idil Sukan, who was the official photographer for the British Independent Film Awards and has shot a slew of popular British stars, like The Wanted and Rebecca Ferguson. Just look at how serious and stylish the 22-year-old is! So thoughtful and focused, it’s like he’s staring into our souls. Or thinking really hard about something important like world peace or saving kittens.
So when and where can we see Matt again? We’re told that he just wrapped filming on a major BBC TV project called “The Syndicate,” and will soon start work on a new film, “Wasteland,” from writer-director Rowan Athale, at the end of February.
