Evanna Lynch: Episode 92

20Jun

When is calling home not the best thing to do? In this week's episode actress Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter, My Name Is Emily, G.B.F.) speaks to Jarlath about her life in LA and whether it is hard to function in an image obsessed industry when you've overcome an eating disorder. Evanna explains how our idea of Hollywood is not accurate, auditions, rejection, learning full self-respect, overcoming cynicism, the vacuum that Potter left behind and the phone conversations we don't necessarily need with our parents.

 

With a rare maturity beyond her 23 years, Evanna talks about why she believes in running towards fear, choosing her charity work carefully and why she thinks ambition in the arts might not be appreciated in Ireland as much as it is in America.
