Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch features in the trailer for new BBC drama Danny and the Human Zoo.

Written by Lenny Henry, it's a fictionalized account of the actor and comedian's life growing up in Dudley in England in the 1970s.

Newcomer Kascion Franklin plays Danny while Lenny Henry plays his dad Samson, and Lynch is his love interest in the drama.

The official synopsis reads, "Danny’s world is a series of complex minefields which he has to negotiate: his home life - which his ebullient mother rules with an iron fist in an iron glove; his love life - where the Irish girl he's in lust with won't give him the time of day until he wins his first competition; and finally the ups and downs of his emerging career."

Lynch (23), who played Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter film series, recently hit the headlines for asking homophobic trolls to quit her social media accounts.
