After being absent since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Edmonton Expo is back this September with a big Harry Potter star attending.

After postponing the 2020 and 2021 events due to the pandemic, Edmonton Comics & Entertainment Expo (Edmonton Expo) has announced some of the stars attending for the annual festivities, taking place from September 16 to 18 at the Edmonton Expo Centre.

The Edmonton Expo announced that Matthew Lewis would be a celebrity guest at this year’s event on Thursday. Lewis is best known for his portrayal of Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter movie franchise.

In addition to the eight Harry Potter films, Lewis has also appeared in movies such as Me Before You and series like BCC’s The Syndicate.
