Evanna Lynch on her relationship with fame and her desire to create deep connections Therapy Works

    • Mental Health

If you want to hear someone who is crazily famous and who is totally unchanged by her fame then you want to listen to this wonderfully open and honest conversation. It is tender, funny, warm and wise. Evanna Lynch is best known for her role as the quirky Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter, she is also a podcaster, a supporter of animal rights and an author. She is an incredibly interesting woman that I know many young people will relate to. 

Amongst the many interesting topics we explored were:


Evanna’s relationship with fame – the unprecedented level of success she experienced, how she struggles to find a way to live with it and to still have a connected ‘normal’ life.

How the depth of connection from having genuine deep conversations is far easier than small talk. 

Her passion, which is infectious, to protect innocence – in all things, animals, children, the environment.

How we can drive ourselves mad trying to find an attributable reason for our negative, self-harming behaviours when sometimes there just isn’t one. 

How it is legitimate and normal to feel existential pain without needing to ‘do’ anything to fix it. It is also important to recognise that there can be times, that we need to address it, and the sooner we deal with it, the better the outcome. 

The power of small trivial things like chocolate to give us little moments of joy that can see us through a dark day.
