Matthew Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom in Harry Potter movies, wants to act in Game of Thrones. The actor, who is also starring alongside Jerome Flynn (Bronn) in the upcoming season of Ripper Street, revealed that he has already tried to work his way into the hit HBO fantasy series.
“I just worked with Emilia Clarke, she was like, ‘They’re going to be doing some new casting.’ I was like, ‘Right, well, why don’t you tell them I’m free and I can come and do it. I’ve seen a bit of the first season and a bit of the second, and I’ve read all the books, so I’m a big fan of the story. I’d definitely jump at a chance to be involved in that. I’d get to do my own accent, which is always nice, and it’s fun. I know a few people on it and it sounds like the most amazing fun—swords, shields, riding on horseback. What an era to throw yourself into!”
