Evanna Lynch has a lot to be grateful for from Harry Potter author JK Rowling. The Deathly Hallows actress says that before she was cast as the lovely and loopy Luna, she wrote to Rowling and the mega-successful author was inspirational in helping her overcome an eating disorder at the young age of 11.
“I told her the books gave me hope, particularly Luna Lovegood,” said Evanna. “I told how I looked up to her. She wrote back and was like a counsellor. She told me anorexia is destructive, not creative, and the brave thing was not to succumb to it. I told her I’d love to be in the films and she encouraged that but said I’d need to be well to do so. In the end I think that’s why I recovered.”
Lynch, of course, went on to win the role she was so captivated with and has been able to put her anorexia behind her to costar in the HP films. (She really is a perfect Luna, don’t you think?)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 is in theaters now.

November 2010 – the beginning of the end of the Harry Potter movie phenomenon. That is the release for part 1 of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. This extended trailer is less about the actual 7th installment itself and more about the characters journey to this point. It makes me very nostalgic for the final two movies. It’s quite an amazing cinematic time capsule of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as they age with their roles. What do you think? Are you ready for the last films?

Triwizard Tournament Dragon Challenges, Flight of the Hippogriff, Olivander’s Wand Shoppe, Quidditch gear and butterbeer from Hogsmead village – that and more will be new at Universal Studios Orlando adventure park opening in the spring of 2010. The Florida theme park will present The Wizarding World of Harry Potter as part of it’s Island of Adventure property and visitors will be allowed to tour Hogwarts, have fun on different roller coaster rides and purchase Harry Potter themed items based on author JK Rowling’s imaginative tale.
The estimated cost? $265 million dollars. Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmead Village will be recreated for fans and there will three rides central to the park. One ride is still super secret – “a high-tech experience inside the castle called Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey that involves the likenesses of the heroes from the films.”
In between filming the final two installments of the Harry Potter movies, Tom Felton has peeked at the upcoming park. The Draco Malfoy actor told the NY Times how he felt about the future home of Hogwarts:
“We always say on set, ‘If this place was real, it would be absolutely fantastic,’ ” he said in a telephone interview. “To actually walk into this world and be able to touch it and taste it and smell it — well, it’s just going to be fantastic.”
Now fans worldwide will be able to interact with the beloved characters, long after the films have come and gone in theaters.

Tom Felton sat down with GMTV and chatted about growing up with Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint on the HP sets and how he became a fan of the books only after he got the Draco Malfoy part. Nice to see the other young actors getting a chance to talk about their experiences too.
Don’t forget, the sixth movie Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince is in theaters on July 15th.

Getting hit with a mild case of swine flu, Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint has had to postpone working on the latest film while he recovers. Scenes for the seventh and final chapter of the JK Rowling book, The Deathly Hallows, that did not involve Grint’s Ron Weasley character were shot so the movie was not interrupted. The actor is no longer contagious and will appear for the press tour and premieres as the sixth film – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – is opening world wide in the coming weeks.
