A DREAM came true for a ‘true’ Harry Potter fan, Evanna Lynch (11), when she received a copy of the latest Harry Potter book signed by author JK Rowling, one of just a half dozen in the country.
‘The Order of the Phoenix’ was released for sale at 7.30am last Saturday, and after consultation between the Lynch family, Our Lady of Lourdes hospital and Eason’s booksellers, Evanna was allowed out of hospital for an hour to collect her book. (x)
OH MY GOD
this was in 2003
she was in the hospital for anorexia
JK Rowling then wrote to her personally
and then she got the role of Luna.
I mean if someone were to write this in a fictional story everybody would be like “that is so not believable.”
I think it’s beautiful that she was promised the role of Luna Lovegood if she got better, to which she then went on to recover and permanently beat anorexia.
no i’m not crying someone fired an aguamenti spell at me
I didn’t know this. Wow.
Her getting the role is an even better story than I thought…
#actors who are actually their character
the greatest casting ever.
Even better when you think about how Dan got a place for himself in NY to continue his career, Emma went to a school in USA, and Rupert bought a fucking ice cream truck.
Follow your dreams Rupert
I didn’t know this. So I looked it up and - HE ACTUALLY DID.
‘I keep my van well stocked. It’s got a proper machine that dispenses Mr Whippy ice cream and I buy my lollies wholesale – 50 for a tenner – so I never run short.
I’m not allowed to sell my merchandise. I’d need a licence for that. ‘I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free. They’ll say, “Ain’t you Ron Weasley?” And I’ll say, “It’s strange, I get asked that a lot.”
It makes it even better that he just GIVES the icecream away. [Source]
