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 love Evanna. She’s wonderful and she really deserves to be in the DH.
Can’t wait to see her and Mr. Ifans. =)

They couldn’t have found a better Luna! I love Evanna — it’s so easy to see how much she “gets” her character!

I love Evanna Lynch! She’s such an amazing Luna, and she’s so much like us: the diehard HP fans who anyone can ask and we can answer! People at school and my neighbor (also a huge HP fan) say that other than my appearance, I’m just like her! (Except for the fact that she has an awesome Irish accent! I’m jealous! :D)
