‘Harry Potter’ Star Matthew Lewis Engaged
Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis is engaged.
The 27-year-old British actor popped the question to girlfriend Angela Jones last month while on a romantic trip to Paris, France, according to TMZ.
The couple met during the annual Celebration of Harry Potter event at Universal Studios’ Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida, in January, where Jones is an event planner.
This will be Lewis’ first marriage, and the second for his fiancee, whose divorce from her first husband was finalized in July.
A snap of the couple taken after they got engaged was posted to Jones’ Instagram page, but Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom in J.K. Rowling’s hugely successful magical franchise, has yet to officially announce the news.
He did, however, ask his fans on Twitter in late November for advice on where to watch English rugby matches while in Orlando, Florida – hinting he may be spending more time with his fiancee in the U.S.
“Does anybody know of a decent pub/bar in the Orlando, FL. area that shows Super League (@leedsrhinos)? #WillingToTravel #AskingForMe #Thanks,” the Me Before You star wrote. “Your collective knowledge of public houses in the Orlando area is extraordinary. Many thanks. If you see me there I’ll buy you a drink xx I’m not in Orlando FYI. Just curious for future reference. Season doesn’t start until February. Look for me then for that drink.”
Lewis will be in Orlando again for the next Celebration of Harry Potter event in January next year, where he will be appearing alongside Warwick Davis, who played Professor Flitwick and Griphook in the movies. It will be Warwick’s first time at the hugely successful fan event.
More stars are expected to be announced over the next few weeks.
The annual celebration takes place from January 27-29 at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios, Orlando.
