We’re looking back at our favorite moments in Harry Potter history, and its stars, ahead of the release of J.K. Rowling’s book Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, available for all Muggles on July 29.

Attention Channing Tatum: Is it too late to cast Matthew Lewis in Magic Mike XXL?

After all, he’s already got the magic thing down – and now he’s got the body to match.

The former Harry Potter star, 25, continues to prove how far he’s come from his days as Gryffindor’s most awkward young wizard.

With an Instagram game that rivals his fellow Hogwarts grad Tom Felton, the British star has been making fans swoon like teenage girls at a Pygmy Puff convention.

Earlier this week he posted his hottest shot yet, showing off a pair of formidable biceps as he hoisted a hefty box from Britain’s Protein Food Shop.

Along with the magic muscles, Lewis also offered a look at his sexy tattoo: a feather on his left bicep. Could it be an homage to his quill-scribbling days at Hogwarts? Perhaps it’s a tribute to J.K. Rowling’s Fawkes the Phoenix, who rises from the ashes [read: puberty] to become a breathtaking and life-giving magical being [read: super-hot guy]?

Whatever the reason, Lewis told PEOPLE last year that he’s “incredibly flattered” by all the attention on his looks: “It kind of leaves me at a loss for words.”

No worries, Matt. The photos speak for themselves.
