Actor received veg in post

Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis once received an unusual gift from a fan.

The actor – who plays Neville Longbottom – was sent a message written on a vegetable.

I got a pepper once,’ Matthew tells Now Online. A yellow pepper. The fan mail itself was written on the pepper.’

Co-star Tom Felton – who plays Draco Malfoy – has also had some strange presents from admirers.

‘I’ve had a few silver spoons from Japan,’ he says.

I think it’s a good luck thing. I don’t think you’re supposed to eat with them.’

Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince is out on DVD now.
