Evanna Lynch to Appear at LeakyCon 2011!


Jun 03, 2011

Posted by Melissa Anelli

Leaky and LeakyCon are what can only be described as totally-freakin’-thrilled to announce that Evanna Lynch, who plays Luna Lovegood, will be joning the festivities at LeakyCon 2011, our conference in Orlando, Fl, next month.

In 2006 Evanna Lynch answered an open casting call for the role of Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films, and her life was changed forever. She went from being one of the series’ most ardent fans to the cinematic personification of one of the fans’ favorite characters. She was 14, and had only acted in school plays before; she took to the role with a level of passion and spirit only a true fan can apply. She has played Luna in the final half of the Potter films to acclaim by fans and critics alike, and remains one of Harry Potter‘s most enthusiastic supporters.

Evanna has also turned her creativity to fashion, bringing to life Luna’s famous radish earrings as well as designing the lion hat worn by Luna in the sixth film. She has actively supported charity efforts such as the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland and the HP Alliance, speaking out on issues of self-esteem and body image. She is currently finishing her studies and is excited to continue her acting career after Harry Potter.

LeakyCon 2011 is honored to call Evanna Lynch a friend, and yet even prouder to add her to the roster of special guests this July.

Evanna will be doing signings (for which there will be no charge) and
photo sessions, which are available (but not guaranteed) for all
registered attendees. (We are arranging a system that assures our best
efforts.) Access to the photos and signings will be prioritized by level
of registration.

You can now register for a new keynote featuring Evanna and all the attending actors. This will be SATURDAY, JULY 16, at 1pm. (This does not interfere with any other keynote – in fact it is on the
same stage as StarKid and more than an hour after that is over. :)

This keynote is available to add to your registration from inside your LeakyCon.com account. Please login at LeakyCon.com, go to the My Registration page and look for this keynote to add to your events. Attendees of this event will be given priority access to photos and signings with Evanna as well.

This is the fourth and last of our keynote annoncements. We will be announcing and highlighting more special events over the next week, and releasing a full schedule soon.

Main registration for LeakyCon 2011 is now sold out, but you can add your name to a waiting list here. Our park event, “Open at the Close,” is also sold out, and you may add your name to the waiting list here. Two of our previously announced keynotes – Arthur Levine and StarKid Potter – are also sold out, but this one as well as our EA Games are available. However we anticipate they will both sell out as well, so please be speedy.

Help us celebrate Evanna’s presence by sending an excited tweet to @evy_lynch. :)

Less than 40 days to go! See you SOON!
