CBBC Newsround reports that the casting for Ravenclaw Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix film is expected to be announced within the next few weeks, by early January. Additionally, the five final candidates were told to keep their secret, so you can pretty much file those claiming to be one of the finalists in the rubbish bin.
Over the past few weeks, several sites and message boards on the internet have featured teenagers saying that they are one of the final five with many of them posting photographs of themselves.
Girls who are really in the last few have been asked to keep the news secret and Warner Brothers say that as far as they are aware, none of the names or photographs of the girls genuinely in the last five have appeared on any website.
News on which lucky girl will get the part is expected in early January, with other casting news later in the year.
