Harry Potter's Evanna lands place at Trinity but heads to Hollywood

Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch is heading for Hollywood.

The Diary can reveal how the Dublin star, who played Luna Lovegood in the smash hit movies, is heading to America to kickstart her next big project.

This is despite having just landed a coveted place at Trinity College to study French.

"My mum really wants me to take up the place but I'm going to America to meet with some agents and see what happens on the work front," she said.

"I feel like if I don't do it now I never will and I want to grab every opportunity that comes my way right now," said Evanna, on her fist visit to the Electric Picnic

She was spotted in the VIP area of the Bacardi tent after popping down with a few of her friends.

She was wearing a trendy pair of black shorts and a black leather jacket and was also sporting cat whiskers on her face.


"I went over to get my face painted and she asked me what I wanted and I told her to do whatever she wanted and this is what she came up with," she explained.

She added that she was a huge fan of Arcade Fire.
