In honor of Matthew Lewis’ new television series, Bluestone 42, airing tonight (at 10pm on BBC Three) we decided to do a news roundup to get you up to speed. All news is thanks to our partner site, Matthew-Lewis.com, so be sure to visit for all the latest Matt news.
Matt stars as Corporal Gordon House aka Tower Block in the second series of the show. Bluestone 42 follows the antics of a bomb disposal detachment serving in Afghanistan. In an interview with the Gloucestershire Echo Matt discusses his joining the show and his character:
“I watched the first series and remember thinking that I’d love to be part of a show like that. It’s a comedy and aims to make people laugh but it’s not trivialised,” says Lewis, who made his first appearance in the Christmas special and cements his character in the new six-part series. Cheeky chappy Gordon, nicknamed Tower Block, was brought in to replace Corporal Millsy (Gary Carr) as number two to Captain Medhurst (Oliver Chris).
“He’s the best of the best and came top in all his classes, but when he arrived in Afghanistan he was very green and thought he knew a lot more than he actually did,” explains Lewis, who admits his alter-ego “had a bit of a chip on his shoulder” at first.
“He didn’t get on with Medhurst initially, there was a bit of friction between them. Gordon’s a lad and loves getting stuck in with the banter – especially giving Medhurst stick for being a posh public schoolboy, but then he did a lot of growing up in that half-hour special.”
In another interview, Matt’s co-star Oliver Chris talks about their characters’ relationship:
How is the class war between Nick and Tower Block [Matthew Lewis] developing?
“I’d say it’s added a new dynamic. One bit of feedback we got from series one was that my character’s quite posh and no one seems to pick him up on it. Who better to do it than a whippet-licking, tripe-smoking Yorkshireman with a massive chip on his shoulder? Matt Lewis has fitted into the group brilliantly.”
Radio Times has posted Ten reasons to watch Bluestone 42 and, Matt is one of the reasons to tune in:
Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter
We know what you’re thinking. When did the gap-toothed, gormless kid from Hogwarts transform into such a hunk? It’s a wonder what a few gym sessions, some stubble and a decent haircut can do for a fella. If you tuned in at Christmas you’d have seen Matthew Lewis join proceedings as Nick’s deputy Gordon “Towerblock” House, replacing Gary Carr’s Sergeant Millsy. We’ve been promised shirtless scenes.
Finally, view the trailer for the show below:

In a new interview with The Telegraph Daniel Radcliffe talks about his role as Igor in Frankenstein. In their quick interview he talks about his longer hair for the film:
“I don’t mind how it looks but I mind dealing with it. I don’t know why any man would have it voluntarily,” he laughed. “The amount of work it takes, having to dry it – doing anything to it is a f—— nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn’t be growing my hair this long in my own time.” He added: “I actually don’t mind it because there’s something really fun about looking totally different and seeing yourself that way. But it’s not a permanent change.”

Of his win at the What’sOnStage Awards he said:
He told the Telegraph: “It’s very lovely to win. We were blessed with amazing audience the whole way through the run. It’s also kind of crazy to me to be nominated against James and Ben. Watching them was very formative in my experience of theatre – Ben in Hamlet, James in loads of things but particularly Privates on Parade. They were just amazing so to be in a category alongside them is just surreal.”
He also talks about The Cripple of Inishmaan:
“I had a meeting with Michael about wanting to do a play in London. He gave me five plays to read, one of which was Cripple of Inishmaan, and immediately I knew I wanted to be part of it,” Radcliffe said. “It was a real luxury, a dream position as an actor.”
The Cripple of Inishmaan is a departure from his previous work. “It’s a darker comedy than I’ve ever done before. It’s breahtakingly cruel at times and that’s one of the things that’s so exciting about it and gets audiences so vocal. They’re shocked a lot of the time. I just think it’s a beautifully written play and I’m excited about taking it to Broadway.”
Emma Watson has been announced as one of the presenters at this year’s Academy Awards. It has not been revealed which award she will present, but the show airs on Sunday March 2nd at 8:30pm on ABC.
