The 21-year-old actor showed up at the AMC River East Theatre to surprise some lucky midnight screening movie goers in Chicago on Thursday night (July 14).
“Had a sick night at Studio Paris in Chicago celebrating HP7P2 release. Shame I gotta get up at 7am! Let me know what you guys think. Ta x” Matt tweeted after his appearance and night out on the town.
Matt also ran into MTV to dish his most embarassing fan moment: “I had a terribly embarrassing moment in New York City. I was in Times Square with my friend Nick, and there was a big Harry Potter poster in Times Square. I was pointing out where I was on the poster. I said, ‘I’m just there next to Emma [Watson],’ and as I started pointing at the poster somebody tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Excuse me, are you Matthew Lewis?’”

The 21-year-old actor chilled out with hostess Phoebe Dykstra before posing for a few photos and then heading over to the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II at the Scotiabank Theatre.
Matt recently spoke with the Yorkshire Evening Post about having to wear a fat suit through most of the films.
“It just helps with the whole image of Neville. Heâ€™s not supposed to look like Brad Pitt, the character is described in the book as being very round-faced. But from the third film onwards they started sticking the fat suit on because I just grew up. I simply grew taller and thinned out. As for [bleaching] the teeth, it was something Iâ€™d always wanted to do but it would have meant me wearing a brace for two years, which I just couldnâ€™t do,” he shared. “In fact Warner Brothers said if I put it off until weâ€™d finished filming theyâ€™d pay for it â€“ and they did. But they were always keen for me to look less than perfect.”
Daniel, 21, told Total Film Indonesia about who on set that he will miss the most, “I suppose the most important person to me on that sat was a man called Will Steggle, who was my dresser. He worked in costume and we got each other through the films, basically, because youâ€™re there for then years and there are good days and bad days. There are some days when Iâ€™m like ‘oh my god, Iâ€™m tired’ but weâ€™d gee each other up and weâ€™d tell each other to stop complaining and get on with it. Itâ€™s great, we love each other. Heâ€™s awesome and heâ€™s my best mate. So for my best memories, even though I canâ€™t think of a specific one, he was probably there for all of them.”
