In a new podcast interview, Matthew Lewis recalled the moment he watched Alan Rickman’s trailer while filming Harry Potter on the last day. What happened afterwards was an unforgettable moment.
Sometimes most movie moments take place away from any camera.
Neville Longbottom, who starred in the Harry Potter movie franchise for Matthew Lewis, was a dream come true, but in a new interview, the actor remembered a day he could never forget.
While Matthew appeared on the Inside of You podcast, he shared a memory that he will win forever with Alan Rickman.
I went to his trailer on the last day, he remembered. And I said to him, ‘Hey, this is your last day and I wanted to say that working with you for so long was amazing. Actually, I know we don’t talk too much, but I wanted to say this because I was so scared, but you were incredible. Thank you for letting me work with you for 10 years and never yell at me or think that none of us are less than your equals. ‘
So what happened next? Alan invited Matthew to drink in his trailer.
“He hid his kettle and we had a cup of tea and chatted about my forward career and what I was advised to do, and I was very pleased with what I did,” Matthew continued. I hope I did this five years ago. At least I can say I did it. I’ve never done this with anyone.
While most of his speeches will remain private, the 31-year-old will remember some of the British actor’s advice.
‘You can do it! “He said these things,” Matthew shared. He suggested theater, so I did some theater. I learned a lot more about what I wanted, not just myself as an actress, but on stage as a person and outside of life.
Alan died in a London hospital in January 2001 after a private battle with deadly pancreatic cancer. He was 69 years old.
His death aroused the respect of hundreds of Hollywood stars, including the Harry Potter actors and crew.
I remember the trailer he gave me the biggest advice I got about this crazy career he shared with me, Matthew posted on Instagram after learning about Alan’s transition. Coming back to these corridors reminded me of many things and I will live these memories for a lifetime. It inspired my career more than he ever knew and I will miss it.
