Pretty Louth lady Evanna Lynch attended the Irish Premiere of the much anticipated Harry Potter 6 AKA Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, yesterday. The movie was premiered at the Savoy Cinema on O’Connell street and hundreds of fans turned out to get a glimpse of the 17 year old Irish actress.
She was accompanied on the Red Carpet, by Matthew Lewis who plays clumsy Neville Longbottom, a Gryffindor with a knack for Herbology. He wore a smart grey suit and she wore a gorgeous Sonia Rykiel dress from BT2. While on the red carpet the pair signed autographs and posed for pics before heading inside to watch the movie.
This is only the second movie that she has starred in; the first was The Order of the Phoenix. Evanna plays “Loony” Luna Lovegood in the magical movies and is a self confessed huge Harry Potter fan. While attending the world premiere of the movie in London last week, she was asked how she managed to keep so grounded. To which she replied, “If you come from a place called Termonfeckin, you can’t really get airs and graces!”
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince opens nationwide Wednesday July 15th!
