Rhys Ifans on Working with Evanna Lynch in "Deathly Hallows"

Actor Interviews

We Are Pop Star has released an interview with actor Rhys Ifans in which he discusses working with on-screen daughter Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood).  The actor, porting Xenophilius Lovegood in the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" film, speaks to the wealth of knowledge Miss Lynch holds about the Harry Potter series, by saying:

 "She's amazing," he said.  "If there's a question on set -- and they have a plethora of researchers and people who've read the books -- but if anyone needs to know ANY miniscule detail about anything that has happened in any Harry Potter novel from start to finish, they ask her.  She knows it all.  So it was quite intimidating.  I was working with this expert in Harry Potter.  But she was a joy to work with.  All of them, all of the kids or whatever you call them, it was just a great couple of weeks."
Mr. Ifans goes on to speak of the honor it is to work on the Harry Potter films, and of his inability to truly discuss his role in the film.  The full article can be read right here.

It’s people like Evanna that are hardcore fans of the books who make the movies great. :D I’m excited to see Mr.Ifans! He seems to be really grateful about being in the movies! He seems like he’ll do Xenophilius justice!

Good article. He looks like he will do justice to Mr. Lovegood. Evanna is so right for the part of Luna it would be hard to imagine anyone else who could do the part at all. He is correct she is amazing!

Thank goodness for Evanna! Without her, W.B. would be going on nothing. Most of them seem like they haven’t read the books. And Evanna is just perfect for the part Luna! Everything from her dreamy, far-off voice to her homemade radish earrings… perfect!

It’s amazing that true fans such as Evanna can be a part of the movies and help bring the characters to the screen, it would be heartbreaking to see some snobby actress (or actor) portraying a character their heart wasn’t really in.
