Matthew Lewis to Star in “Ripper Street”
The series Ripper Street has added new cast members, including our very own Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom). Matthew will be appearing in the fourth season of Ripper Street, which has already begun filming in Ireland.
Ripper Street is a crime/mystery series based in London beginning six months after the infamous Jack the Ripper murders. Inspector Reid is haunted by the Ripper killings and vows to keep the streets in order. The first three seasons were aired on BBC One. When the fourth season is released, the series will be exclusively available on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
It has been rumored Matthew will be playing a policeman on the upcoming season of Ripper Street. Matthew has not confirmed this casting but has hinted about his role on Twitter:
Sometimes I like to dress like a 19th Century policeman and insist somebody takes pictures of me next to a horse. pic.twitter.com/xdStaC2cMc

Creator of Ripper Street Richard Warlow is excited about the new additions to his cast:
As these new characters’ lives take shape on the page, it is a daily inspiration to know that they will be brought to life by the most magnificent troupe of actors Ripper Street has yet assembled.
