Evanna Lynch: "Emma Watson made me feel at home"

 




[Version fran├žaise]







As the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter movie is approaching (November 16), it seems like we're getting more and more random interviews of the cast. Today (actually yesterday) we're getting Evanna Lynch thanks to US Weekly.
 


Meeting Emma, Daniel and Rupert:
 
"Emma was always so nice to me and made an effort to get to know me and make me feel at home, which was a huge deal coming from her. And because I was such a big Harry Potter fan, I was very nervous around those three and intimidated by them. And I used to be in the car on the way to set, kind of rehearsing conversations I’d have with them. And obviously, the conversations never worked out like that. I was so nervous. So, I just remember her being really kind and making a lot of effort to make me feel at home."

 
Getting to know the rest of the cast:
 
"The thing is they (Daniel, Rupert and Emma) were always working every day on set. The rest of us, we’d have breaks and we’d be off getting to know each other and playing games and stuff."

  
The last day of filming Harry Potter:
 
"I didn’t have much to do. I was just standing there fighting off death eaters. But it was just nice to feel like part of a team, part of a family. And when they said cut everyone hugged each other. And there was a sense of joy, euphoria, sort of tinge of sadness. Very much sort of sweet. I wasn’t ready for it to end, so I didn’t, I just kind of pretended it was another day on set. I definitely cried, but I didn’t cry until I went to say goodbye to the producers in the office. To me, that’s when it was like, ‘Oh, this journey is ending.’ That was that last day."

Let's face it the trio were the stars, so interviews with people such as Tom & Evanna are very much 'tell us about your experiences HP', whereas really what the interviewers want is gossip/stories about the big three.

Depends how keen Dan, Emma & Rupert are for the big bucks as to whether we have a 'Friends Reunion' type show for the HP trio.

Is she really getting married with Leo? Has that been confirmed or is it true that they’re just happy to be together and don’t necessarily plan to marry yet? I’m just wondering.

Leviathan's Phone said...

Eden's mentioned on Twitter that she's had a computer problem that has led to a login problem that won't let her post new posts or moderate comments on existing posts.

Please be patient until she can get "back in the saddle."

Thanks, all!

You’re not missing much anyway. I don’t think there’s any news/new sightings. I haven’t seen any.

she was born into privilege her parents were very wealthy lawyers her whole life

Anonymous said...

Her parents were lawyers, not thieves. They've studied and worked hard, and when they're divorced her family have had economic difficulties. Then she achieved a position thanks to her work. That's not privilege, while yours are certainly envy and racism.

Anonymous said...

her parents never had financial troubles during the divorce her dad even bought a vineyard during that time lol also she is from a privileged background of elites and snobs she even went such a posh racist school that they recently had to change the name of it to be less racist against east Asian people

oh wow, she went to the dragon school? that place is one of the most expensive school in Britain in the 90s yeah her parents were pretty rich in that case she wasn't from a troubled poor background

Anonymous said...

Tbh you can tell she is from a really sheltered elite background with how she talks about not being a white feminist because she had a black boss once or making snide remarks about Beyonce being for the male gaze. I like Emma but she often puts her foot in her mouth around feminist issues and makes semi-racist remarks that she probably thinks are harmless due to her background and the white privilege she grew up in even attending a school with a racist name like it was normal.

Guys she is made a few mistakes but she is still growing and learning as a person and already admitted her privilege in interviews and is doing her best to make up for her issues just give her time stop judge so harshly all of the time!

I believe the phrase is 'she talks the talk, but doesn't walk the walk'.

how much more time should be given? she's in her thirties now if she hasn't learned not to say these silly things about POC by now its unlikely she will change

why do some sound shocked that she was from a wealthy background? its pretty obvious if you google her for 5secs you see she was well off her entire life its not some big secret info you haters think it is lol

As someone else posted Emma already owned up to her problems and is working on fixing this in her activism and how she talks about people stop trying to use it as a weapon against her clowns

Everyone knows that she is from an elite background and you can pretty much figure that out from her accent. So please don't act dumb.
Also no one is perfect the sooner you realise it the better off you will be.

I used to be a stan, but because of her actions in recent years, I’ve stopped and moved on. Now, before everyone comes at me and says “so why are you here?”, I just want to explain myself. Her traveling to multiple countries and vacationing, especially during the time covid was at its peak is the biggest reason. She probably stayed in lockdown for a month or less and then traveled again. Shame on her, and Leo, for just allowing it to happen and joining her. Second is her recent Tweets. She flat out lied to her millions of fans saying that “like us” she’s been staying home when WE ALL KNEW she wasn’t doing that. And thirdly, her activism activity. I personally don’t know any celebrity who claimed to be so passionate in something and then to just ditch it entirely after 3 years. Like seriously, it seems to me her entire advocacy career was just PR. If she were really passionate about her gender equality and women liberation activism, she would have at least said something like an exit of the advocacy, but she literally just ditched the entire thing without a trace of exit. That’s my rant of why I’m no longer a Stan.

Anonymous said...

I don't believe she ditched her advocacy, as you believe. People were accusing her of performative activism. What do you do when accused of that? You stop being so public about it and do the work privately. Which is what she does do. To be honest, I rarely comment on here when her "ex stans" go on rants or whatever, because they look foolish coming here to hate on her. But had to say something in regards to her activism. She's damned if she shares what she does, and she's damned if she doesn't. You ex fans are never satisfied.

Well, I'm proud of Emma Watson becoming a bad girl and not being overly correct at any second as she used or maybe tried to be.

"why do some sound shocked that she was from a wealthy background? its pretty obvious if you google her for 5secs you see she was well off her entire life its not some big secret info you haters think it is lol "

well some stans were trying to push a myth that she grew up poor and hard a rags to riches story when she grew up rich went to an extremely expensive school and would have been well off even without getting HP so it needed pointing out to some who were trying to make it sound like she had a rough poor childhood or something

Anonymous said...

Hmmm never really heard people trying to say she grew up poor or had a hard time as a kid you can even see one of her childhood holidays on youtube staying at some fancy castle in France some American tourist posted it lol

Dont think anyone would fall for the idea of her having some rags to riches story even if her parents had some money issue during their divorce they still were working as lawyers and well off enough to send her to that dragon school or whatever so plenty of money around clearly.

Anonymous said...

Emma herself said she was poor as a child there is no reason not to believe her
maybe her parents took out loans to send her to a good school???
ever think of that??
you don't know the truth so stop guessing she was rich all along stupid haters

'there is no reason not to believe her'

even though 70% of what she says is later proven false or she backtracks soon after? lol

Normal Emma fans who live without grudges or hatred are doing our things and living our lives as Emma does and when she shows signs of sighting again we are happy to see her well and when she returns to the movies we will be excited as always. Life is one, live and let live, stop envying the rich and sowing hatred in the poor that is mediocre.

I doubt she will work again in movies she got rid of Prosper PR and her manger or agent said she is no longer seeking work

Anonymous said...

dumb hater she is "dormant" for now but will have a comeback! probably on netflix!

You really think she is just going to stay on holiday for the next 50 years or so of her life? I dont think so.

Anonymous said...

I dont think she will do nothing for the rest of her life but movies? that gig is over...she'll probably move into working with more clothing brands like Kering in some boardroom role.
There is better money it for her now than acting she was only booking 1 movie in like 4 years thats not great so i can see why she would move to do something else.

Anonymous said...

No longer working with her PR team is a sign she is moving out of entertainment but i doubt she is ending her public life

I don't usually comment on here but... I'm just wondering why people would waste time on a blog about somebody they don't like.

Also why is anybody surprised that Emma came from wealth, her accent should've been a dead give away. Since people like to randomly bring shit up from years ago cause they're bored here we go. Yes Emma did say her family struggled financially for a WHILE growing up. However she never said she grew up poor or implied that she's a rag to riches story either.

For those of you that don't know it's more expensive to live in England than it is in France, Especially if your a single parent of 2 kids who had just gone through a divorce, and a fight for sole custody of said 2 kids. I'm pretty sure everybody knows how expensive a divorce is now add a custody battle to that. As well as having to relocate to a new country you're kids have never lived in before while having type 1 diabetes ( insullin can get expensive depending where you are in the world and your health care provider) on top of that.

Yes Emma's dad did buy a vineyard after the divorce, however Emma didn't live with him. She visited once every other weekend and then went back home to her mom. Her dad was the on who payed for Dragon (the school she went to from 6-12 years old) not her mom. Later on her mom and dad recovered financially but that doesn't mean there wasn't a financial struggle for a while either.

Honestly just say you don't like her and go

People like to claim she was poor as a kid to defend her white privilege that Emma already admitted she has...so yeah she wasnt from a porr background and was very well off

Her being poor idea just comes from a meme
hp fans made where it says she only got pencils
as birthday gifts as a child
which is just nonsense
when she is getting sent to such
an expensive school haha

Anonymous said...

Tbh the media twisted things Emma said to make her life look worse than it was they did this to JKR Rowling as well claiming she was almost homeless and broke before she wrote HP but its just lies. Media try to implant rags to riches stories on every celeb to sell more papers and often celebs like it that way too as it creates sympathy for them from fans.

"Normal Emma fans"

Just wait for new stuff and don't stalk sites like this for new private pictures or somehow know where she is and where she was been etc etc.

So basically not you.

I am a normal fan who knows that Emma is taking time and that she will wait until her next movie or project, that's all, it's very simple live and let live. Read a book, learn something new, stop feeding on hate on blogs, Tumblr or whatever, stop looking for fan sites to spill garbage, it's not healthy. This is a fan blog here there are people who love Emma and only come to see if there is new news that's all, many of us do not comment and avoid reading the comments because it is full of hating trolls who take their obsession with Emma beyond what healthy.

you come to a site that stalks Emma every move with creepy shots taken by paps and random members of the public you stans have te obsession tbh

TBH from what I have seen, there are no normal people on this blog just a bunch of incels wanting to get her private social media and talking nonsense about her BF.
I'm just here to study this weird fan love for my video essay on the dangers of fan culture

As a fan I will admit the personal attacks on Leo upset me and go too far as for creepy pics I don't think Deuxmoi stuff should be posted its invasive

I would rather the blog didn't post that but I'm not in charge of it. I come here for news its not my fault if the blog owner sometimes posts invasive images.

tbf to eden there is no proper news so what else is she meant to post? she has to post something or the blog will just die

Beware, honestly, I tried the same as a study project about the psychological categories of fans and haters. It's sometimes hard to resist not to get involved. By her obsessive fans AND haters.

I was not informed that my capitalizations will matter that much.

I personally think majority of Emma's activism gig is done not because she wants to do it but because it was proposed by her prosper PR team. I notice that their clients are often leaning on the activism side to contribute to their public life (ex: tom hiddleston, vanessa kirby)

Ps. i'm not saying she is not a feminist/activist irl. Im just saying that at the end of the day it did eventually cause her harm (backlashes) when she decided she cannot/doesnt want to continue her social media activism anymore. Add to that that she and her PR team wasnt able to deal with the criticisms in a proper way (ex: her ig post abt not posting for the BLM movement was really self serving and did her no good, especially when they stopped posting after like 8 posts. Ngl, that was really disappointing)

Yep. Called this out in 2013 got flamed for it. This was when Emma was at the peak of her powers and everyone wanted a piece. It was all about keep herself current and therefore being considering for the big roles. It's a Hollywood thing.

Though funny her star has somewhat waned since Harvey got busted...... :/

She will probably take time off have a family, perhaps a small role here and there and then return in full when the inevitable Harry Potter sequel comes later this decade or early next.

I really dont think she wants to keep acting and will move to do more stuff in the fashion industry like Kering gig

Honestly, Emma already hinted she was stopping activism a long time ago with that 'expect a new quietness from me and less red carpet appearances" interview stating she will only work on things in private from now on.

Becoming a UN ambassador isn’t something you would keep private. The UN would’ve probably anointed something. She’s not an ambassador for sustainability at the UN, it’s for Kering. And she’s working on things in private.

Guys, I've read the Fortune article but I haven't foud a reference to a new position that Emma would have at the United Nations. Coul someone enlight me?

Anonymous said...

The article was edited to remove her new position it now says her old role I guess it was a typo

Anonymous said...

She’s still UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. The article clearly confused that with her role at Kering. If she switched the UN would have announced it. She’s still listed as a current ambassador on the UN women site.
She’s been investing for a while through her company, but this is the first big one. She’s stepping up as an Angel investor (Leo has probably sparked more of an interest in that.)
