It was revealed on February 2, 2006 that Evanna Lynch has
been cast as Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter and the Order of the
Phoenix. Lynch started filming at the end of February at
Leavesden Studios in London.
Evanna Lynch is a huge Harry Potter fan and, according to her family, is "obsessed" with the series. In 2003, Evanna met Potter author J. K. Rowling and received a signed copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. She was let out of hospital to do so. Evanna Lynch had told the author that she would never be cast in the film because she lived in a place called Termonfeckin, where it was too quiet for anything exciting. Evanna received a letter from Rowling that responded, "Don't be too hard on Termonfeckin, it does have a lovely name".
Rowling met Evanna Lynch for a second time on the Leavesden lot in the early stages of the fifth film's production. After a long chat, Rowling had one thing to say about Evanna portraying Luna: "perfect".
Evanna Lynch has a cat named Luna who has had several kittens, one of them named Dumbledore. Another cat Lynch had, named Crookshanks, has died.
