* DyeHard: She's a natural brunette, but she's become so associated with Luna's golden tresses that she seems resigned to keeping them.
* FakeBrit: Weird example. Being Irish, Lynch breaks Creator/JKRowling's British-only cast rule. However, Seamus Finnigan is Irish, so it is clearly canon that Irish wizards attend Hogwarts. Luna's accent was never specified to be either English or Irish in the books. In any case, Creator/RhysIfans, who is Welsh, plays his role with a FakeIrish accent in order to sound more like his on-screen daughter. So, whatever.

'''Evanna Patricia Lynch''' (born August 16, 1991) is an Irish actress best known for playing Luna Lovegood in the ''Film/HarryPotter'' movies. Her performance has been so good that one could almost say she ''is'' Luna. She is also one of the most involved in the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fan community, regularly showing up at premieres and conventions. In 2011, Evanna moved to Hollywood to continue acting and find new roles. In 2012, she was cast as Alehna in the TV series ''Series/{{Sinbad}}'', based on ''Literature/SinbadTheSailor''. She was set to act in the crime thriller ''Monster Butler'' alongside Creator/MalcolmMcDowell and fellow Potter actor Creator/GaryOldman, but the project has been impeded. She won plenty of acclaim in her native Ireland for a shockingly dark turn in the film ''Film/MyNameIsEmily''.

*** There is a piece of {{glurge}}, circulating Lynch was hospitalized because she was battling anorexia. When she heard, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming J.K. Rowling promised her]] that if Lynch beat her anorexia, she could audition for the films. Although, it should be noted that, in this case, "could" means "has the potential to," she was not guaranteed the role. While heartwarming on the surface, it raises UnfortunateImplications that Lynch had the role handed to her out of pity!

* PromotedFangirl: Evanna Lynch heavily identifies with the character of Luna Lovegood [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix since the day the character was introduced.]] Her audition consisted of her walking in on a whim, telling the producers "Nobody understands Luna like I do", and portraying the best Luna they had seen. She made many of the props and trinkets Luna wears in the films, notably her radish earrings, and for all of this portrays one of the few characters the fandom universally agrees the casting was great for.
** The first time Evanna was ever the subject of a news story was not for being cast as Luna, it was a [[YetAnotherBabyPanda puff piece]] on the release of an upcoming ''Literature/HarryPotter'' book whose midnight release Evanna was going to have to miss because she was in the hospital at the time. Instead, her hospital allowed her to leave just for that morning to collect her own copy at the bookstore that had been reserved for her, one of the few autographed by Creator/JKRowling (with whom Evanna had corresponded). The name of the book? ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'', [[ContrivedCoincidence the same book that introduced Luna.]]

* SuppressedMammaries: She was strapped down for her role as Luna in the seventh and eighth movies particularly, though it is a more minor example.

* PlayingWithCharacterType: Emily Egan in the Irish film ''Film/MyNameIsEmily'' is very similar to Luna Lovegood - MissingMom, wacky dad for a writer, bullied at school and something of an oddity. But while Luna was a lovable CloudCuckooLander, Emily is shown to be a very dark and depressed suicidal girl - whose odd behaviour is shown as a mark of just how broken she is. Essentially she's doing for Luna what Audrey Tautou did for {{Film/Amelie}} in ''Film/HeLovesMeHeLovesMeNot''.

* OneOfUs: A fan of ''Series/{{Glee}}'', Music/MichaelJackson, ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}'', ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''/''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', ''Theatre/LegallyBlonde'', Music/LadyGaga, history, and (of course) ''Franchise/HarryPotter''. At 2011 [=LeakyCon=], she and Creator/ScarlettByrne ([[AlphaBitch Pansy Parkinson]]) were wearing Creator/TeamStarKid shirts! Not just shirts: Evanna [[http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lofycbVb7b1qegfeco1_500.png hung out with]] Creator/DarrenCriss and [[http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lohdvhzDcY1qzepbco1_500.gif went to the Yule Ball with Joey Richter]].

* GranolaGirl: Evanna is a vegan, and promotes animal rights causes on her twitter.
* IAmNotSpock: Probably more so than for any actor in history. In fact, Creator/JKRowling openly admitted that, when writing the final two ''Harry Potter'' instalments, she heard Evanna's voice in her own mind when envisioning Luna Lovegood, meaning that not only did Evanna become Luna, but ''Luna became her''.

* FakeBrit: Weird example. Being Irish, Lynch breaks Creator/JKRowling's British-only cast rule. However, Seamus Finnigan is Irish, so it is clearly canon that Irish wizards attend Hogwarts. Luna's accent was never specified to be either English or Irish in the books. In any case, Creator/RhysIfans, who is Welsh, plays his role with a FakeIrish accent in order to sound more like his on-screen daughter. So, whatever.
