ACTRESS Evanna Lynch made her stage debut in her home country to a standing ovation.

The 22-year-old, who rose to fame as Luna Lovegood in the 'Harry Potter' movie franchise, plays the wife of illusionist Harry Houdini in 'Houdini', which opened at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin last night.

Lynch stars opposite Jamie Nichols and Stuart Brennan in the play, which re-enacts several of the magician's high-risk stunts for the audience. Evanna said taking on a stage production was always a career goal for her.
