Then: He was Neville Long­bot­tom, the scared in­tro­verted wizard who didn’t know why he got sorted in Gryffindor, a house known for brav­ery. Lewis was 12 when he got the part. As the se­ries con­tin­ued, Lewis had to wear a fat suit and fake teeth to look the part. He ad­mit­ted that he strug­gled with that look as a teenager on set.

“Be­ing 15 years old in the mid­dle of pu­berty, hav­ing to wear a fat suit. There’s girls around; I’ve got this fat suit on ev­ery day. No one knows I’m wear­ing this damn thing, they all just think I’m fat,” he said to Peo­ple mag­a­zine in 2017.

Now: Lewis, 28, con­tin­ues to make head­lines for his looks ... but it’s not what you think. The 182cm ac­tor’s trans­for­ma­tion from geeky to suave and fit has been widely re­ported. His most re­cent film work is the ro­man­tic drama Me Be­fore You.
