Rhys Ifans on Working with Evanna Lynch in "Deathly Hallows"

Actor Interviews

We Are Pop Star has released an interview with actor Rhys Ifans in which he discusses working with on-screen daughter Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood).  The actor, porting Xenophilius Lovegood in the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" film, speaks to the wealth of knowledge Miss Lynch holds about the Harry Potter series, by saying:

 "She's amazing," he said.  "If there's a question on set -- and they have a plethora of researchers and people who've read the books -- but if anyone needs to know ANY miniscule detail about anything that has happened in any Harry Potter novel from start to finish, they ask her.  She knows it all.  So it was quite intimidating.  I was working with this expert in Harry Potter.  But she was a joy to work with.  All of them, all of the kids or whatever you call them, it was just a great couple of weeks."
Mr. Ifans goes on to speak of the honor it is to work on the Harry Potter films, and of his inability to truly discuss his role in the film.  The full article can be read right here.

I think Ifans will make a great Xeno even if he looks a bit young. I love te fact the Evanna is a die hard HP fan and knows every little detail about the books, sounds a lot like me! :9 WB would be lost without I dare say.

They have a plethora of on-set researchers who have read the books? Seriously? Then what’s their bloody excuse?!?!?!?!?! Aargh!

“It was like getting your stripes” I love the way the HP films have become the recognition for British actors! They’re all clambering to get a part on set. And guys take what Gambon says with a pinch os salt, he’s an odd sense of humour and I’m sure he loves doing HP. There aren’t many parts goin where you get to scream at kids for no reason

Why do they have all those on-set researchers if even they don’t know the answers?! They should just ask some real HP fan like Evanna!
