- Today, August 24, we want to wish a very happy 31st birthday to Rupert Grint. He was cast as Ron Weasley at the age of 11, without having much acting experience before. Ever since then, he starred in all eight Harry Potter movies until 2011 and we're more than happy about this and would like to thank Rupert for bringing smiles and laughter to us by portraying Ron so perfectly.

Happy birthday, Evy Lynch!

Today, August 16, 2019, Potterheads wish a very happy birthday to one of the cast members: Evanna Lynch, known as none other than Luna Lovegood. So, happy happy 28th birthday to this young lady, also known as Evy by her fans, friends and family members.

Evanna was cast as Luna Lovegood after she auditioned at a casting call in London for the role of Luna against 15,000 other girls in January 2006. She made her first appearance as Luna in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in 2007 and appeared in all three Harry Potter movies that followed.

Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) opens up about her eating disorder and tells how the Harry Potter saga helped her overcome the disease.

Evanna (Luna Lovegood) and her Dancing With the Stars partner Keo Motsepe are bringing the Harry Potter magic to the ballroom by dancing the Viennese Waltz to the tune of the iconic “Hedwig’s Theme.” Before taking the stage next week, ET’s Katie Krause was with Evanna and Keo at their DWTS rehearsal on Thursday, where Evanna reflected on how the famous franchise helped her with her body issues and overcome an eating disorder.

“I believe on raising awareness on this issue and it’s very healing for me to talk about this stuff,” she confessed. “I wanted to talk about how before Harry Potter, I was quite sick, and how the Harry Potter books really helped me through an eating disorder. And the reason I wanted to talk about it on here, it’s really healing for me… That is the full story, that’s the only kind of honest way to tell it, and that’s why it was so special because it was the only kind of light that I saw in the world at a very dark time.”

Adding that getting her Harry Potter role was a “fairy tale,” she however, doesn’t want her story to be sensationalized and for people to think that her mental issues were “cured” just because she got the part.
