‘Harry Potter’ Star Evanna Lynch Reveals Which Hogwarts Pals Have Offered Support Throughout ‘DWTS’
Harry Potter alum Evanna Lynch (aka Luna Lovegood) has brought a little bit of that Hogwarts magic to each Dancing with the Stars performance this season. And while Lynch and her partner Keo Motsepe were busy captivating the audience and judges, her personal fan club was right there cheering her on.
Lynch, 27, opened up exclusively to PureWow about how the support of her fellow Harry Potter stars, friends Scarlett Byrne (Pansy Parkinson), Katie Leung (Cho Chang) and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), have helped her flourish on the dancing competition show.
Lynch expressed gratitude for her longtime friends suiting up and showing up through her 25-hour-minimum practice weeks and nerve-wracking performances. “They’ve been so supportive and they’ve all been excited to see and excited to cheer me on,” she shared.
But Lynch’s magical squad hasn’t just been shooting an encouraging text here and there, they’ve pulled out all the stops. As Lynch explained, “Katie’s actually been staying with me the past couple weeks in L.A., and she and Bonnie came to watch the show.”
Byrne even lent her own dance prowess to team “Kevanna” and performed alongside Lynch and Motsepe in a three-person salsa.
