Evanna Lynch – Exclusive JustJared.com Interview
JJ: How did shooting TV compare to your film experiences?
EL: I was excited and nervous because it was the first thing I did since Harry Potter, so it was the first thing I kind of felt like, you know this is job. Harry Potter was my childhood and it felt very safe and this was something I was excited about. I wanted to work and meet new people. (You can still vote for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 as MTV’s Movie of the Year!)
JJ: Tell me about the day you got your Harry Potter role and then the last day on set.
EL: It was when I was 14. I knew they were going to call me and tell me whether I got it or not. It was on a Monday and so I told my mom, “We need to go straight home after school.” I was checking my phone and nothing, nothing. Then she was like, ” We need to go pick up some groceries.” and I was like, “No, because you’ll take so long. I’ll get the groceries.” So I went into the store and I got the call!
And the day [I] left was obviously a sad day to see that chapter close. My last day was a group scene. I didn’t have any lines… I remember being there and being so happy to see everyone again. It wasn’t until the very end when I went to say goodbye to the producers and director David Yates that I just broke down, because that was when I first came to the studio for my first audition, that was where we went first. It was all very new and I ended up feeling so at home there.
JJ: Did you take anything from set?
EL: I didn’t steal any props. I collected all the call sheets (laughs) and I took the sign from my door that said my name. I wasn’t very daring.
JJ: What were your favorite looks from today’s photo shoot?
EL: The feathery one was fun. It was so much fun because they were not clothes that I would normally wear or choose for myself. I like how at photo shoots you go and someone sees you how you would see yourself. It just opens your mind to characters you can play and things like that.
JJ: You have a Michael Jackson tattoo…
EL: Yeah, I’ve had that for a while. I got that on my 18th birthday. I just always wanted a tattoo and it’s a place where I don’t see it so I don’t ever get tired of it. I think it’s fun because people don’t expect it of me.
JJ: Are there any books that you’d love to see get adapted into a movie?
EL: “The Hunger Games” is the big one for me recently. I don’t know, can I get back to you on that? I always liked that book, “Star Girl”. Have you heard of that one? She was very much like the character of Luna so that’s why I liked it. She was more damaged than Luna. I’m going to go look at my bookcase when I go home.
JJ: I know you like Disney. Who is your favorite princess?
EL: I love Ariel. I got her autograph. (laughs)
JJ: That would be an awesome movie, right?
EL: Yeah, absolutely yes! I think they should do like a dark one, like how they’ve done Snow White. Maybe they could do the real fairytale. The real fairy tale is where she dies at the end and he doesn’t love her in return.I think there’s sort of a message in there like wasted opportunities. Like she always wants to be this something. It is sad, but I think it would be interesting.
JJ: Would you dye your hair red?
EL: Absolutely, yeah. I can’t swim, though, so that’s a problem.
JJ: What kind of music do you listen to?
EL: I do listen to a lot of Michael Jackson. I also like Aqualung, they’re my favorite band.
JJ: Do you have any secret hobbies?
EL: I do a lot of yoga…I’m training to be a teacher. I enjoy it. It keeps me calm. I like art. I go to art galleries a lot.
JJ: Who’s your favorite artist?
EL: I think Chagall. His stuff is so dreamy.
