UPDATED x2: Matthew Lewis Attends Totally Lit Actor Programme Launch, Nominated for LFF Award,Screenings of Sweet Shop: Tickets Available Now

Totally Lit, an actor's workshop for 11-18 year olds launched recently and Matthew Lewis was in attendance. The programme includes Saturday classes in London for aspiring actors which are hosted by "leading industry professionals" according to the ad. Some images of the star can be seen in our galleries and another, with his brother Anthony and ex-Corrie actor Bill Ward, is left. No word on whether Matt will be one of the participants in this project as part of the "Masterclasses with top casting directors, actors and agents", but since one of the creative team is his brother Anthony, I'm guessing yes!

We've received word from Totally lit that Matthew will indeed be hosting a masterclass, so if you're an aspiring actor between the ages of 11 and 18 living in or near London, make sure to book your audition soon! Below is the statement from Mr Paul David-Gough, an artistic director of the programme:
Matthew is the one of the first actors to sign up to our masterclass programme. Just so you are clear, as I don't wish to mislead people, the masterclass is only for students at Totally-lit. We are recruiting in the first two weeks of September (7th and 14th). People wishing to audition will need to book in, in advance, but they can do this via the website. Anyone under 16 needs an adult (parent/carer) to book on their behalf.
