The actress who played Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films interacted with JK Rowling before she was ever cast for the movies.
When Evanna Lynch was 11 she wrote JK Rowling begging for help with anorexia.
"I told her the books gave me hope, particularly Luna Lovegood. I told how I looked up to her. She wrote back and was like a counsellor. She told me anorexia is destructive, not creative, and the brave thing was not to succumb to it.”
The letter may have even helped her get a role in the films.
"I told her I'd love to be in the films and she encouraged that but said I'd need to be well to do so. In the end I think that's why I recovered."
JK Rowling is so amazing!! HP forevs!
