- 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.

Exciting rumors have been announced, Luna fans! Actress Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) is said to join the cast of “Dancing With the Stars”.

Dancing With the Stars is gearing up for its twenty-seventh season, and while the entire cast has yet to be announced, some details about the ensemble have started to trickle out. One recent piece of information is that Evanna Lynch, our beloved Luna Lovegood, has joined DWTS, as reported by Us Weekly.

A lot more rumors about who is joining the upcoming season are going around. Meanwhile, ABC only revealed on Good Morning America this Tuesday, as per Entertainment Tonight, that Disney star Milo Manheim will be paired up with Dancing With the Stars pro Witney Carson for the upcoming season.

For those who have never watched the show before, here is some information about how the show works.

The competition begins with an all-new cast of celebrities who will be paired up with the show’s pro dancers and brave the dance floor for the very first time. Each week these celebrities will leave their comfort zones and endure hours of grueling rehearsals to master new dance styles and technical choreography to perform a dance, which will be judged by a panel of renowned ballroom experts as well as voted upon by viewers. In the end, only one star will rise above the rest to be crowned champion and win the coveted Mirrorball trophy.

So, we are quite certain that Dancing With The Stars asks for a little bit more complex dancing techniques and dance-steps than what Luna had to cope with during Yule Ball. However, Luna would undoubtedly just have a good time and not worry about the judges, or cameras, or what anyone else thinks, for that matter.

Actress Katie Leung (Cho Chang) hopes the rise in Asian representation in film and TV “isn’t a blip”.

Katie Leung – who portrayed our beloved Cho Chang and now stars in ITV’s Strangers – has applauded the rise in Asian representation in film and TV, but cautioned that true equality is still a way off. There has been a positive reaction the world over to Asian-led movies and series, including the US box-office hit Crazy Rich Asians and Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

But 31-year-old Leung told Digital Spy and other press that she’s “really yet to play a role that is not down to the colour of [her] skin”.

“I hope the increase in Asian representation in film and TV isn’t a blip,” she said. “I think that America is probably doing slightly better in terms of diversity, but I like to think that we are getting somewhere in terms of representation.”

The actress, who was born in Scotland and is of Hong Kong descent, added: “In the 15 years that I have been acting, I have really yet to play a role that is not down to the colour of my skin, so I can’t say that I have experienced anything like that yet, but I look forward to that day.
