Now that we know Harry Potter's frumpy-dumpy Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis) is cryzaaaaaazzzzy hot, how exactly does he feel about being called the "new Ryan Gosling?" And how exactly does he handle his own magic wand?

(Ahem. We are talking about an actual magic wand here, people. Expelliarmus, you pervs!)

We just got a sneak peek at the amazing new Diagon Alley attraction in Universal Studios Orlando, and took a train ride with Matthew (and his magic wand!) on the new Hogwarts' Express, where he opened up about the evolution of his look and self-esteem, his fondest Potter memories, and so much more—like, you know, how to prep for a homoerotic dance party! It was a good talk.

We also got to take a tour of Gringotts' Bank with Bellatrix Lestrange—the unmatchable (and always a bit crazy in the best of all ways) Helena Bonham Carter—who spilled some Harry Potter secrets, including why she was "annoyed" at the Harry Potter casting directors, and how very badly she wants to do the new series of movies.

Plus, many more of your favorites hit the red carpet for the Diagon Alley preview party. (Confession: We switched teams for Draco Malfoy. Don't tell!)

Watch all the exclusive videos above and below!

And keep checking E! Online in the coming weeks for more exclusive secrets from Diagon Alley, which opens to the public July 8.

Also, if you're on the West Coast, make sure to tune in at 8 p.m. tonight (Friday) for E!'s Live From the Red Carpet: Diagon Alley!

SHHHH....We tried all the Harry Potter ice cream at Diagon Alley and ranked it!
