Post Video: Matthew Lewis attends & presents Sydney Harry Potter: the Exhibition preview

Matthew Lewis headed to Sydney, Australia, this week, where he assisted in unveiling a preview of Harry Potter: The Exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum. SnitchSeeker was on hand at the press preview Tuesday morning, where Sydney correspondent Laurenkmcgregor got footage of Matt's introduction and chat with host Richard Wilkins from channel 9's Today Show, as well as a question and answer session with several of the 120 Hogwarts-robes-clad children invited.

The preview also exhibited the first look at some of the new costumes and props from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 set to be featured, including Ron and Hermione's dress robes from Bill and Fleur's wedding. Those images, along with shots of Matt by the Flying Ford Anglia and posing with students can be found here and here in our gallery. Matt chatted about what's to come in the Sydney leg of the exhibition - the only scheduled for all of Australia - set to open November 19, 2011, and his work in the Harry Potter series, including his role as Neville Longbottom in Deathly Hallows: Part 2 - that can be viewed below. Lauren was also kind enough to write up a synopsis of the day's events.

Lauren McGregor: Well, I was ushered into a room where they had the displays of some items that will be at the exhibition, the knight chess piece that Ron rode in Philosopher's Stone, a Death Eater costume, the Bloody Baron's costume looking all red with blood, and Ron and Hermione's dress robes from Bill and Fleur's wedding in Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

The room was semi-set up to look like the Great Hall, with four candle-lit long tables for press to sit at. The mood was set by the playing of the Harry Potter soundtracks. "Hedwig's Theme" began and 120 children entered the room to sit in front of the stage - they all looked like they hadn't even been born when Philosopher's Stone came out in the cinemas, but all excited in their Gryffindor uniforms.

Richard Wilkins from Channel 9's Today Show came on stage, to introduced the deputy premier of NSW to the stage, where he talked about the magic of Harry Potter. Then a gentleman from GES came up talked for a bit and had an owl flown to him over our heads with a message. That cued the video of the exhibition then there was a crash and smoke filled the stage. The screen disappeared and out from the smoke Matthew Lewis came on stage with the Ford Anglia.

This is where Richard and he discussed the success of Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Matt wore a South Sydney Bunnies Jersey (Rugby league team), answered some of the lucky children's questions - a lot concerning Neville. After that he posed for photos with the children and for the media, then I followed him and his people to go around to the may screaming fangirls who broke the actual barrier so staff of the Powerhouse had to form a human barrier. Matt signed autographs and posed for photos; I managed to get him to sign my book I had brought along.
