Evanna Lynch Discusses Luna and Deathly Hallows

Evanna Lynch, who will be playing the role of Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, was recently interviewed by the Drogheda Independent. During the interview, Evanna spoke about her experiences on set and shared some of her theories with regards to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:

Q: Has appearing in ‘The Order of the Phoenix’ lived up to your expectations?

Evanna: I was a little bit heartbroken to find that all the sets were in separate parts of the studio or that some of them had been dismantled. Also as I got to know the other actors I realised how different a lot of them are from their characters, extremely nice but different. As a fan that was tough to learn at first.

Q: The new Harry Potter book, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ is due out in July. Have you any idea what is going to happen in this book and what is ahead for Luna? Do you know what the Deathly Hallows refers to?

Evanna: My favourite theory is that it refers to the veil in the Department of Mysteries. All Hallows Eve is the time when the ‘veil’ between the two worlds is at it’s thinnest. I think Harry will have to go through the veil for some Horcrux-hunt related reason and he’ll have to get to understand death more and he may meet Dumbledore because apparently JKR told Dan that DD was giving her ‘trouble’. Also JKR is always emphasising that there are worse things than death and I think it would be very like her to trick us like that, so that Harry is ‘dead’ but we’re still with him, death isn’t the end. Most people think that he either lives or dies but I like the idea that it’s an in-between.
