Harry Potter: The Exhibition Boston Preview
UPDATE: 83 beauitful, high-res photos from the exhibit can now be seen starting right here!
Deathly Hallows notes from the fansite Exhibition interview with Matt Lewis:
– Matt has the script for Part 2 and will begin shooting next week.
– “The scale of it is enormous,” he says of Part 2.
– Neville is “a bloody and battered resistance leader – a battle hardened veteran.”
The East Coast premiere of Harry Potter: The Exhibition opens in Boston, MA on Sunday October 25, 2009. MuggleNet staff member Kat was able to preview the Exhibition this afternoon and also attended a roundtable discussion with actor Matthew Lewis.
We learned that Matt goes back to work for Deathly Hallows next week and will be filming the final battle scenes soon.
Matt also said that after seeing his own dancing shoes in the exhibition he recalled a scene that had been cut from filming in Goblet of Fire…
“I can't dance. They told me Neville is a good dancer. My partner was Bonnie, Ginny Weasley, and we learned the waltz. Which wasn't too difficult, I was okay with the waltz. You follow it back, to the side, back, to the side. That's easy, I can do that. Then we had to learn a tango. Now you see the other guys, like Dan & Rupert, they were fine because they were told they were supposed to be rubbish. It was supposed to be uncomfortable. Neville however was supposed to look like Fred Astaire. And so we did this tango, and we spent months on this tango and you know I have got two left feet. It was totally embarassing and Bonnie was probably cringing herself, but she was pretty good. And then we never even shot it, we never even did it. We never even got around to filming it. So that reminded me, with the dancing shoes.”
