As we all know, JK Rowling is quite active on Twitter. This morning, the author answered a fan’s question about Luna Lovegood‘s birthday, confirming that our favorite Ravenclaw was born on February 13.
Evanna Lynch recently talked to Jarlath Regan on podcast, An Irish Abroad about facing rejection during auditions.
Goss.ie provided a transcript of the audio:
“I do often have auditions where I’m like ‘ugh, what happened there? That was terrible.’ I used to always just call my mum from here, ‘what am I doing? How do I get through this?’” she said.
“It used to always be, ‘ah sure maybe go back to college, maybe it’s not for you,’ and it’s like, that’s not what you want to hear.”
“When you get that no, that’s the most cutting thing and you just want to go home and curl into a ball and be told ‘it’s ok’.
“I realised I wasn’t hearing what I wanted to hear. I would be inclined to believe what my parents said about me because they know me best and they have my best interests at heart.”
“But you don’t get any better by quitting. I love it, it’s what I want to do, I wont get any better if I quite and agree with my parents and take the safe option,” she said.
