People reacted on social media –

‘Harry Potter’ Star Matthew Lewis, AKA Neville Longbottom, Weds

The Harry Potter star, whose real name is Matthew Lewis, shared the happy news on his Twitter account on Monday evening.

Matthew Lewis, better known for his role of ‘’Neville Longbottom’’ in the Harry Potter series, has confirmed the news of his marriage on his Twitter account. The star made the announcement of his nuptials on Monday evening.

Matthew shared a photo of himself in a suit and bow-tie alongside his beautiful partner Angela Jones wearing an elegant white wide dress on social media on Monday.

‘’Not only did I miss @ArcticMonkeys in LA but they were performing in Italy at the same time we were there and my wife made me get married instead.’’ Said Matthew, before jokingly adding: ‘’Fuming”.

Once he shared the happy news, Matthew’s Twitter feed was flooded with messages of congratulations and well-wishes from fans and co-stars alike.

Fellow actor Chris Rankin, who played the role of Percy Weasley in the films, added: ‘’ “Look at you. Congratulations beauties x”. Tom Felton, who played the role of Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, congratulated Matthew by adding: ‘’ “Top lad xx.”

It was reportedly in January 2016 that the couple met for the first time. Back then, Angela was working at an event at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, Florida. They began dating in July 2016 and it was in November the same year that Matthew proposed to her, apparently at the Eifel Tower in Paris, France.

“They’re both over the moon. They got together in July and hit it off straight away,” a representative for the couple told E! News at the time.

See? You don’t have to have a love potion for a happy ending every time.

Alan Rickman Was Frustrated With ‘’Severus Snape’’ Role In Harry Potter

His frustration is now revealed to the world after Rickman’s collection of letters were released for auction a few days ago.

Alan Rickman was frustrated with the way his ‘’Severus Snape’’ role was portrayed in the Harry Potter series, his personal letter collection has now revealed.

He played the role of a moody professor in the series who was never able to come on good terms with Harry Potter.

One letter, which is written by producer David Heyman, sheds light on the frustration Rickman had about his role in the series.

“Thank you for making HP2 a success.” the letter reads.  “I know, at times, you are frustrated but please know that you are an integral part of the films. And you are brilliant.”

There is another letter which Rickman penned himself in 2009 while he was working on ‘’The Half-Blood Prince’’. Named ‘’Inside Snape’s Head’’, the letter brilliantly captures the frustration which Rickman had about his role and how Director Yates managed the storyline of his character in the movie.

“It’s as if David Yates has decided that this is not important in the scheme of things i.e. teen audience appeal,” Rickman noted.

The letters which were under Rickman’s possession before his death in 2016 also include one from JK Rowling, the author of Harry Potter, in which she thanks Rickman for ‘’doing justice to my most complex character’’.

In addition to containing letters from the team of Harry Potter, Rickman’s collection also includes letters from Bill Clinton, Prince Charles, and Tony Blair.

Other items in his collection – which is set to be auctioned off at the ABA Rare Book Festival in London – include Rickman’s copy of ‘’Die Hard’’ script, the 1988 movie in which Rickman played the role of villain ‘’Hans Gruber’’.

Actor Neil Pearson, who has brought together the worlds, told Daily Mirror that Rickman’s collection consists of 35 boxes. And that it contains the script of ‘’Truly Madly Deeply’’ and ‘’Robin Hood Prince of Thieves’’.

The collection is valued at £950,000.
