Matthew Lewis knows it's important to remember where you came from — and who helped you get there.
To celebrate J.K. Rowling's 50th birthday on July 31, Time asked 17 Harry Potter veterans to send the author some birthday wishes. Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom and has become the poster child for dork-to-stud transformations, went beyond the basic HBD message and offered up a super sweet note explaining how much of an impact Rowling has had on his life.
Awwwww. Little Neville Longbottom has turned into a real catch, you guys. Matthew Lewis is going to make a very good husband someday.
You can read the rest of the Time J.K. Rowling birthday wishes here. And you can catch Matthew Lewis in the upcoming film Me Before You, which co-stars Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire).
