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.

Rhys Ifans is really cool … I am so excited about him being in DH. It’s funny that someone as big as star as him could feel intimidated by Evanna Lynch’s knowledge lol. But, she is just so awesome and, her love of all things HP and of her character really show in the way that she brings Luna alive.

I just had a vision of Evanna Lynch with her lion hat shouting at the movie crew “YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG!” :D

Well, maybe not shouting, as Luna doesn’t shout. It’s really great to see a big fan of the books playing a character (and isn’t she perfect as Luna?)

I am glad that Rhys is playing Xenophylius Lovegood, and that he has Evanna Lynch as his mentor. She will teach him everything he needs to know about the world of Potter!

That would explain how she did the character of Luna Lovegood so well. She is a big expert on Harry Potter, some may even call her obsessed……
