We very rarely hear from Evanna Lynch, (Luna Lovegood), from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix but recently she gave an interviewopens in new window in which tells of her experiences on the set. Evanna also mentions that she knows some things about the last book as well as gives her own theories.

You can read some snippets of the interview hereopens in new window:

Are there many similarities between yourself and Luna Lovegood?

Evanna: I think the main difference between us is that I am a lot more ambitious and that makes me serious. Luna is so free and seems to drift along with life, dealing with everything as it comes to her. I have more goals so I've more worries. I think that's why I love Luna so much. She doesn't have to have achievements or approval to feel satisfied and she's as wonderful and balanced a person as anyone could be. She knows worrying is pointless so she just floats and I really admire that in here

The new Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is due out in July. Have you any idea what is going to happen in this book and what is ahead for Luna? Do you know what the Deathly Hallows refers to?

Evanna: My favourite theory is that it refers to the veil in the Department of Mysteries. All Hallows Eve is the time when the 'veil' between the two worlds is at it's thinnest. I think Harry will have to go through the veil for some Horcrux-hunt related reason and he'll have to get to understand death more and he may meet Dumbledore because apparently JKR told Dan that DD was giving her 'trouble'. Also HKR is always emphasising that there are worse things than death and I think it would be very like her to trick us like that, so that Harry is 'dead' but we're still with him, death isn't the end. Most people think that he either lives or dies but I like the idea that it's an in-between.
