As we previously reported, Matthew Lewis was to take part in the Great North Run last Sunday for chartity. He recently spoke about the upcoming race under his recent title as Leeds Rugby Foundation Vice President. You can check out the video here.
He also reported on Friday last that donations "broke the £1,000 barrier" and as it turned out raised £1,085.88. It seems donations are still open so donate here. Matt finished the run in approx 7 and a half hours (going by his start and end tweets at 10.24 am & 6.06 pm) and is may be already back in action on the rugby pitch as he was made aware of the new winter programme. He was running as part of Team @RugbyLeeds with @RLBarrieMc10, @nrushfirth and @jonodebono.
In other Matt news, Snitchseeker are reporting that he has a new project in view with the BBC. He recently spoke to The Independent newspaper about Potter and his participation in the aforementioned race and let slip that he would be filming in South Africa for "a lead role for a BBC project" which will aim for a Spring 2014 release. More as we get it.
Matt also took part in a photoshoot and these images can be seen here.
