J.K. Rowling does make the internet a fun place to be sometimes.
We all know that Matthew Lewis, the podgy and gawky boy who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter movies, has grown into a handsome and muscular young man. This is one of those transformations that you’d be tempted to call ‘magical,’ if that didn’t belittle all the hard work involved.
Nevertheless, when Matthew appeared on the cover of Attitude magazine this week in a pose that left almost nothing to the imagination (above the waist, at least), it proved to be a startling moment, not least for the woman who created his character in the first place.
