In a far away land...

I have a passion for music and writing, and am an avid reader!
Watch this space to keep track of what I am currently obsessing over!

Most people say that it’s ridiculous to say that the Harry Potter books saved lives, but read this and you’ll change your perspective. Evanna Lynch, who plays Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter, once wrote to J.K. Rowling begging for at least a tiny role in one of the films. At the time she was young and was dying due to her anorexia. She mentioned it to J.K. and begged to have one part in the film before it was too late. J.K. Rowling responded with a deal: she’d give her a part if she got better. Evanna got better and never returned to her anorexia.


The Irish actress had the deadly eating disorder for two years from 11 and wrote to J K Rowling begging for help, reports the Sun.“I told her the books gave me hope, particularly Luna Lovegood,” said Evanna, who went on to play the character in the films.“I told how I looked up to her. She wrote back and was like a counselor. She told me anorexia is destructive, not creative, and the brave thing was not to succumb to it,” she added.“I told her I”d love to be in the films and she encouraged that but said I’d need to be well to do so. In the end I think that”s why I recovered,” said Evanna (x)
