This story is faked. J.K. Rowling and Evanna Lynch had not met before the movie. True they had communicated via letters, but they lost touch before Evanna ever tried out for the role of Luna. Evanna got her part fair and square, she out-acted her competition, she wasn`t given it.

Well, this is obviously a stylized, augmented version of what happened, but I think it`s super cool that JK did, in fact, write back to Evanna, and apparently several times. And it appears that her correspondence did help Evanna stay motivated to beat address this condition, which is really wonderful. Good job on both of them.

Nice story but it sends out a horrible message. "Starve yourself, it`ll get you attention from celebrities and eventually lead to wealth and fame!"

Nevertheless, Rowling`s statement (that Lynch could audition for the role if she beat anorexia) implied that she could not audition if she remained hospitalized for her anorexia. Although Rowling did not make a promise to offer an audition, she did give encouragement for Lynch to get control over her anorexia so she could move on goals including her acting career.

No one is saying that Rowling promised her anything. In the actresses own words she says Rowling said she could audition if she was healthy. So could 15000 other girls. So could you if you would have wanted to.
`Could` is not a promise.



The word promise was never used except by you.

You `could` be king but I am not promising you will be.

I`m saying the JK Rowling promise to let her audition is a myth. JKs great, love her. Love Luna. But this is just one of those publicity stories you hear that aren`t really true.

What am I saying? I`m the guy that keeps saying "believe in magic you muggles!" so... Yes this story is 200% true. I sand corrected. Must have been a confundus charm.

Gerry why would it have been public before she auditioned? She was an unknown. She was in the hospital for anorexia - verified fact. She went to a book signing and that is her at age 11 holding the signed book, at the book signing - verified fact. She auditioned for the part - fact. She got the part - fact.

What exactly are you saying is a myth?

I don`t doubt Evanna Lynch is perpetuating the myth, but her encounter with JK Rowling never became public until after she answered a cattle call open audition with thousands of other girls. It`s called Publicity... she`s working it.

Although you can argue that Rowling had no input into the casting process, the claim made above, that "if she beat anorexia she could audition for the role," is true; she could audition along with thousands of other girls. It would be true even if Rowling had not said anything. That she got the role was fortuitous. Nothing above implies that Rowling made any promise to influence the casting process.

Totally myth. She auditioned at a casting call with 15,000 other girls. Got a call back to audition with Daniel Radcliff and then got cast. Rowling had nothing to do with it. She was anorexic though when she was younger.

*ahem* Evanna Lynch`s Wikipedia page says nothing about this. She`s a professional actress, and auditioned like anyone else. JK Rowling also appeared to have nothing to do with the cast process directly.
