Matthew Lewis has remained close with “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling in the years since the film franchise ended and the birthday note he wrote for her will make you feel all sorts of feelings.
A bunch of actors from the eight movies were asked to write short letters to celebrate J.K.‘s 50′s birthday in a new Time piece, but Matthew‘s is definitely the stand out.
“I could talk about the millions of lives Jo has enriched whether through the stories and characters she’s created or through the millions of pounds she’s given to charity. She’s a remarkable woman. However, I would like to thank Jo for changing MY life,” Matthew wrote. “Without her imagination and her talent I would never have become the man I am today. That’s not even to mention her generosity and loyalty when it has come to supporting everything that I have done in the years since Harry Potter. She’s just a wonderful human being and I consider myself so privileged and honoured to call her a friend. Happy birthday, Jo.”

Here’s what the 25-year-old who once played Neville Longbottom had to share:
On how he’s changed over the years: “Whenever I go back to Leeds or see people I went to school with they always talk about my veneers. I’m like, ‘I haven’t got veneers, these are my actual teeth!’ If I can’t f*cking convince people I went to school with how am I going to convince anyone else! I had these braces – which were fucking painful by the way – for six months, and then it was kind of a weird thing, I was excited I guess to go on the red carpet on the release of the last film and be me, and not to have to have the fat suit under my t-shirt. It was quite an exciting buzz. I was 21, I was like ‘yeah, this’ll be cool!’ It was never meant to be a ‘hey everyone, look at me!’ but it was nice to be able to go and be myself. And then obviously a lot of attention focused on it, which I didn’t expect at all. I’ve never considered myself to be good-looking at all. Just average.”
On his new film Me Before You: “My character, Patrick, is a triathlete and personal trainer, so he’s totally focused on the race that he’s going to be running. I spoke to the director and I said it’d be nice to get into the mindset of someone like that, because he’s not drinking alcohol, he’s just eating salads all the time, and I was very interested to know where you go to in your mind to have that level of commitment. So I sort of gave up alcohol – I say sort of, I have given up alcohol.”
