Irish actress EVANNA LYNCH is keen to reprise her HARRY POTTER character after learning there's a link to Luna Lovegood in author J.K. ROWLING's latest film adaptation, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
When she heard the film was in development at Warner Bros., Lynch tweeted studio bosses at Warner Bros. and begged them to cast her in the prequel.
She explains, "When the news broke that was the first that I heard of it and I had a bit of a freak out on Twitter. I actually tweeted at Warner Bros., 'Please put me in the movie!' They were like, 'Sounds good'. I don't know what that means."
But she isn't holding her breath: "I don't think Luna will be in it, because it's set 70 years before (the Harry Potter films) and, with the time it took us (10 years) to make Harry's span at Hogwarts, 70 years of a time lapse between this guy's life and when Harry's born, I think I'll be too old. I think I'll be an old woman by the time I get round to it.
"But someone did say on Twitter, 'You could do the story from the point of view of Luna relating the story to her children about your great grandfather 70 years ago,' which I would be totally down for."
Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, has also expressed an interest in seeing Rowling's script for the new film, but insists he won't be back as the boy wizard.
