Another Harry Potter star has ‘Neville Longbottom-ed’. In a big way.

 

Once upon a time, there was a young actor called Matthew Lewis. When Matthew Lewis was an early adolescent, he was cast as the ever-down trodden Neville Longbottom in the popular Harry Potter film franchise.

During the first six films, Lewis’ character was never the object of teen girls affections, like his comrade Alfred Enoch who played Dean Thomas in the series.

Then something magical happened.

Turned into this:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One and Two were released over two consecutive years and the world stopped. Suddenly, Lewis was, well, smoking hot. Because, you know, puberty happened.

And so, the phrase 'Neville Longbottom-ed' was created.

And now it has emerged another Harry Potter star has also Neville Longbottom-ed.

Remember this guy?

Yeah, we forgive you if you don't. He was the Sytherin Player who said a bunch of nasty things to Harry Potter, during a Quidditch match in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Also, yes those teeth were fake.

And this is what he looks like now:

Jamie Yeates, now 32, played the role of Slytherin captain, Marcus Flint in the second Harry Potter film.

According to his IMDB page, Yeates has not starred in any films since Chamber of Secrets was released in 2002, although he had starred in two films prior to that, Mirad (1997) and Mr. Bean (1990).

The former actor has steered clear of the limelight since his Harry Potter days. With no apparent active social media profiles, we're unsure of Yeate's current career.

Is he a model? A recluse? Does he still live in England? Does he have kids? We may never know, but congratulations on the whole 'getting super attractive' thing, dude.

Matthew Lewis is staring in the much-hyped Me Before You film alongside Emily Clark and Sam Claflin. You can watch the trailer below.
