In 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,' the character of Neville Longbottom (played by Matthew Lewis) finally emerges as the brave leader that his placement in Gryffindor House promised so many years ago. It's been quite a trip for Neville, having started out as a very timid first-year who could barely keep track of his pet toad, Trevor.

Along the way, he joined Dumbledore's Army and learned to defend himself and his friends against dark magic, even when it seemed crazy to think that this weakling of a boy could ever match the courage of his parents, former members of the Order of the Phoenix who were tortured to the point of insanity by the Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange.

Moviefone recently sat down with Matthew Lewis to hear his thoughts on closing out the long-running, super-successful 'Harry Potter' franchise, and he let us in on a secret or two. Check it out below, and if you missed it yesterday, here's our sit-down with Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley. (And check in tomorrow for our talk with Tom Felton, aka Draco Malfoy.)
