Luna Lovegood in the Order of the Phoenix film, Evanna Lynch, recently conducted her first, exclusive interview with an Irish newspaper, Drogheda Independent. As the interview requires registration, various statements from the article have emerged in various Potter sites. Notably, she gives a statement to the Harry Potter fans who have voiced their (not-so-nice) opinion of her being selected for the coveted part, courtesy of CBBC Newsround:
To all the fans that are disappointed in the choice for Luna having seen the photo of me in the papers... that this was my first photo shoot and I felt a bit awkward.
I promise to work hard to do a good Luna!
Thanks to everyone who wrote in.
