NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM

Neville Longbottom is a young wizard in the Harry Potter series who was born on July 30th. His parents are Frank and Alice Longbottom, and his family comes from a long line of pure-bloods making Neville a pure-blood himself. His parents, while they were young suffered terribly under the hands of Bellatrix Lestrange - a strong follower of Lord Voldemort - and ever since then have been unable to care for their only son, because of this Neville had instead been raised by his grandmother : Augusta Longbottom. A very strict and demanding woman, who while she no doubt loves her grandson dearly, hasn't had the best track record of showing that love. .... Neville himself was a very shy, and forgetful young child - who while at school as usually the butt of numerous jokes and pranks - however, through the years and through his own budding friendship with Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Hermione Granger, and Luna Lovegood, Neville proved that he was and always would be the embodiment of a true and courageous Gryffindor. Someone who would always stand up for what he believed in, and would always fight for what he believed to be right. He was a hero, the one who could have been the boy-who-lived, and the one who helped his friends and no doubt did his parents proud by his brave soul and wonderful heart.

___________________________________

Neville Longbottom Through The Years...

PS/SS:

"Gran, I've lost my toad again."
"Oh, Neville," he heard the old woman sigh.
~~~
"You can't go out," said Neville, "you'll be caught again. Gryffindor will be in even more trouble."
"You don't understand," said Harry, "this is important."
But Neville was clearly steeling himself to do something desperate.
"I won't let you do it," he said, hurrying to stand in front of the portrait hole. "I'll – I'll fight you!"

PoA:

"She [Trelawney] says the crystal ball's told her that, if I tell you, I'll have a horrible accident!" squeaked Neville…

GoF:

After Moody's class on the Unforgivables: "Neville?" Hermione said gently.
Neville looked around.
"Oh, hello," he said, his voice much higher than usual. "Interesting lesson, wasn't it? I wonder what's for dinner, I'm – I'm starving, aren't you?"
"Neville, are you all right?" said Hermione.
"Oh, yes, I'm fine," Neville gabbled, in the same unnaturally high voice. "Very interesting dinner – I mean lesson – what's for eating?"
~~~
"As Harry took off his glasses and climbed into his four-poster, he imagined how it must feel to have parents still living but unable to recognize you. He often got sympathy from strangers for being an orphan, but as he listened to Neville's snores, he thought that Neville deserved it more than he did."

OotP:

"My gran says that's rubbish," piped up Neville. "She says it's the Daily Prophet that's going downhill, not Dumbledore. She's cancelled our subscription. We believe Harry," he said simply. He climbed into bed and pulled the covers up to his chin, looking owlishly over them at Seamus. "My gran's always said You-Know-Who would come back one day. She says if Dumbledore says he's back, he's back."
~~~
"And in our first year," said Neville to the group at large, "he saved that Philological Stone –"
"Philosopher's," hissed Hermione.
"Yes, that – from You-Know-Who," finished Neville.
~~~
"Expelliarmus!" said Neville, and Harry, caught unawares, felt his wand fly out of his hand.
"I DID IT!" said Neville gleefully. "I've never done it before – I DID IT!"
~~~
"Harry was pleased to see that all of them, even Zacharias Smith, had been spurred to work harder than ever by the news that ten more Death Eaters were now on the loose, but in nobody was this improvement more pronounced than in Neville. The news of his parents' attacker's escape had wrought a strange and even slightly alarming change in him."

HBP:

"They’re even staring at us," said Neville, indicating himself and Luna, "because we’re with you!"
"They’re staring at you because you were at the Ministry, too," said Harry ,as he hoisted his trunk into the luggage rack. "Our little adventure there was all over the Daily Prophet, you must’ve seen it."
"Yes, I thought Gran would be angry about all the publicity," said Neville, "but she was really pleased. Says I’m starting to live up to my dad at long last. She bought me a new wand, look!"
He pulled it out and showed it to Harry.
"Cherry and unicorn hair," he said proudly. "We think it was one of the last Ollivander ever sold, he vanished next day – oi, come back here Trevor!"
And he dived under the seat to retrieve his toad as it made one of its frequent bids for freedom.


DH:


"Just in case they're - busy - and you get the chance - "
"Kill the snake?"
"Kill the snake," Harry repeated.
"All right, Harry. You're okay, are you?"
"I'm fine. Thanks, Neville."
But Neville seized his wrist as Harry made to move on.
"We're all going to keep fighting, Harry. You know that?"
~~~
"But you are a pure-blood, aren't you, my brave boy?" Voldemort asked Neville, who stood facing him, his empty hands curled into fists.
"So what if I am?" said Neville loudly.
"You show spirit, and bravery, and you come of noble stock. You will make a very valuable Death Eater. We need your kind, Neville Longbottom."
"I'll join you when hell freezes over," said Neville. "Dumbledore's Army!" he shouted, and there was an answering cheer from the crowd, whom Voldemort's silencing charms seemed unable to hold.

Nagini on the foreground... :thud: I love that Matt made more DH movie promos this time around. For DH1 he wasn't even on the NYC premiere. :(

Also posting here his interview from Plush magazine where he talks about HP and living in Leeds. :)

Quote:

“There’s just something about [Leeds], whether it’s my group of friends, I don’t know really, but I just don’t really want to move away, and I don’t have a reason to anyway. I just don’t want to. Leeds is where I want to be.”

I didn't even see Nagini I was too distracted by his hotness :lol:

That's a shame about DH1 but he was pretty much non-existant in that movie, cause they weren't at Hogwarts but I like that he got his chance to shine in part 2 :)

wow :thud: look at his pose in that picture :thud:

L i N d $ @ y 08-16-2011 01:44 AM

He's grown tall and is very handsome. People were buzzing about him during the DH2 premiere. I have friends who don't really care for the actors but when they saw Matt at the premiere they were like "Lindsay, are you serious that's Neville?" They couldn't believe it. :lol:

When my mom (who has never seen a HP film) heard Matt being interviewed by a local Chicago radio station, she asked me if I could show her a picture of him. She thought Matt was very good looking but was more impressed by his manners, etc.

Made her a Harry Potter fan after that!

Haha, that's good! :lol: He's a bright boy, very articulate and fun to interview. :)

Eleonor: Welcome to the thread! :wave:

I haven't checked this out yet (will do later) but here's a radio interview of Matt with NovaFM in Australia where he talks about HP, rugby & more. Audio is about 6 minutes long. :)

Thanks Lindsay! :)

I haven't really seen/read/heard that many interviews with Matt. I should.
