Facts about Evanna Lynch
1-This was her first acting gig
2-Before she played Luna, her younger self loved the book series so much that her cats’ names are Luna and Dumbeldore. She also had a cat named Crookshanks who has since passed away and that it helped her overcome her struggle with anorexia.
3-She made the radish earrings that Luna wears in Order of the Phoenix. In a special feature on the Half-Blood Prince DVD with Jany Temime, Evanna revealed that she also made a bracelet that Luna wore at the Slug Club Christmas Party.
4-Even though she did have a connection with J.K. Rowling before the movies, she auditioned for the role along with 15,000 other girls. She beat the competition all by herself.
5-Not only has J.K. Rowling been a major influence and help to Evanna’s life, but she has inspired Rowling as well. J.K. has said that Evanna is the only actor/actress who has influenced her writing.
6-She has used her experience battling anorexia to help and inspire other women.”Being someone who makes people feel okay about themselves, being able to make people accept things they went through, accept themselves more, that makes me feel way better about myself than any diet has ever done.”
7-She’s a vegan! For a long time she was vegetarian, but she recently made the transition.
“Becoming vegan was always something I wanted to do, but I didn’t want it to feel unpleasant or like I was depriving myself or sacrificing, which some people do. Someone gave me very good advice about going vegan: crowd out your old habits with new ones, before you start cutting out lots of food, start learning new recipes.”
