If you’ve been on the internet long enough, you would’ve come across the term ‘longbottomed’ that has been floating around for years. Just to refresh your memory, the term comes from Neville Longbottom, the shy and clumsy Hogwarts student, who was played by Matthew Lewis in the Harry Potter films who over the years, let’s just say, blossomed completely. Basically, the term has been coined to refer to such dramatic transformations.
I mean, just look at that glow up! If that doesn’t deserve its own term and to become an internet phenomenon, then I don’t know what does.
Well, his incredible transformation has sent the internet into a meltdown before also, but this time he has outdone himself. The actor can now be seen starring in the new ITV show ‘Girlfriends’, and during a trailer that aired this week, he can be seen shirtless, and that has obviously got people on Twitter talking.
Even though he is 28-years old now, people still remember him as the awkward little kid from Harry Potter, and that’s why his transformation is confusing a lot of people with comments like “It just feels wrong finding Neville Longbottom so attractive”.

Along with making everyone excited about his new show, he also seems to be having a mini ‘Harry Potter’ reunion because of it. His character’s mom, Gail, is played by none other than Zoë Wanamaker, who was Madam Hooch in ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’. Well, it seems like life has come full circle for him.
