Harry Latino let us know about a new interview they conducted with actress Evanna Lynch about her upcoming role as Luna Lovegood in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. You can read the entire translation of the interview below, however here are a few of the highlights:

And what what about the earrings you are using? Did you made them yourself, like in the movie?

Oh, yes. But J.K.Rowling gave me this one herself [pointing at her silvery necklace with a hare and a moon ("Luna" in Spanish means moon)]

Oh, it's your Patronus!
Yes, the hare!

Because in the trailer it seems more like a horse.
But that's not mine. I don't know who the horse belongs to, but mine it's the hare, I've seen it


You can see this Patronus that Evanna is referring to, here in our galleries.

J.K.Rowling said that you're a perfect Luna Lovegood, ¿do you have any kind of contact with her?
Yes, I do, and I asked her about some of my theories about the books. She always listens to them, but she doesn't say anything.

Did you ask her more about your character, like her Patronus, or her birthday? Some characters like Robbie Coltrane and Alan Rickman know more about their characters. Could you tell us something else about her?
No [laughs].

Do you visit Harry Potter fansites?
¡Oh, yes! ¡Mugglenet is my favorite! I feel like I owe to them. I like The Leaky Cauldron, but through Mugglenet I found out about the casting.

...and the fans want to know if you chat or comment in forums with other name.
Yes, I used to, but I don't any more.


Where will you be on July 21st and with who?
Oh, yes! I'll go with my cousin and my sister, we'll make ourselves t-shirts and we'll go crazy, I think we'll go to London, because that's where everyone will be, so it will be more exiting.

Then you'll go to the book launch in London?
Yes, but I'm not sure about it, I'm still thinking, because there will be so many fans and probably they'll recognize me, and I'll be surrounded all the time.

We know that you like the shipper Harry and Hermione, but what about Luna?
My shipper is about Luna and Dumbledore, I know he's dead and it was a little older. [laughs] So I don't know what will happen with Luna.

And what what about the earrings you are using? Did you made them yourself, like in the movie?
Oh, yes. But J.K.Rowling gave me this one herself [pointing at her silvery necklace with a hare and a moon ("Luna" in Spanish means moon)]

Oh, it's your Patronus!
Yes, the hare!


Because in the trailer it seems more like a horse.
But that's not mine. I don't know who the horse belongs to, but mine it's the hare, I've seen it.

If you were at Hogwarts, which house would be your house?
Gryffindor. I think I'd be brave and great for it.

Why did you want to play Luna?
Because it's very unusual to find people like her. Most of us have some kind of cover against the rest, but she doesn't, and she's conscious of it, and happy about it.

Could you describe your character?

She's in fourth year and she's new to Harry. Her father works at The Quibbler. She's forgetful and close to Harry. Everyone thinks she's different, but she doesn't try to impress nobody. She always tries to be herself subconsiously and she accepts it that way.

Do you see part of you in her?
No, I wouldn't say that she's like me, but she's someone I'd like to be like. I think that she might be a rule model to follow. I think that people should show more how they are.


Evanna, this must be like a fairy tale to you, how was this experience?

It's been amazing. Everything has been different as I imagined, so unexpected, it's weird.

How did your parents reacted to the fact that a fourteen years girl was so determined, specially with this situation of going to London, to this casting?
As usual, they nodded and laughed [laughs]. When my mum saw me disappointed, she told me to go, so I tried, I went to London and I got it.

How did you prepared yourself for the casting, being this so important to you?

I haven't prepare anything special. I read the books and that's been all my preparation… well, I tried to remember some things.

Do you consider yourself as a funny person?

Yes, and I'm also a great fan, and I wanted to show that.

What are your next goals now that we know that you've the part?

I want to meet Tim Burton, and also the fans. I want to be a director, but that would be in some years.

Are you sure?
Yes, a child director! [laughs]

Well, you could be the first. Haven't you thought about following an acting career?

Hmm… yes, it could be, between other things.

Guess That Book

"Take this thing for a walk?" he repeated in disgust, staring into one of the boxes. "And where exactly are we supposed to fix the leash? Around the sting, the blasting end, or the sucker?"
