Evanna Lynch talks ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie at Harry Potter Celebration 2015

Evanna Lynch, along with her Harry Potter co-stars Michael Gambon and Phelps twins,  attended the Celebration of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando a few days ago.

At the event, Evanna spoke to Snitch Seeker about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

SnitchSeeker: In Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, who would you cast as Newt Scamander?
Evanna Lynch:
You know, actually, there was an actor who I auditioned with for My Name is Emily and he was brilliant.

They went a different way for that role – George [Webster] was brilliant for that role, it was just kind of his role – but Luke Newberry, I met him and he was just so good.

He’s sensitive and he’s quite quirky. He definitely has a deep sensitivity. He was just a pleasant person. There was good energy about him. So what happened was, on Twitter people were saying … he has a fan base. He played Teddy [Lupin] in the [Harry Potter] films – or he was supposed to play him. His fans were saying, “Luke for Newt,” and I was like, “Oh, that would be really great actually. That’s a really good fit.” So, I know he’s interested and would love to play it, I think. Who wouldn’t? It’d be an amazing part. So I think he’d be good.

Pictures from the 2-day event can be seen in the gallery here.

The official Harry Potter twitter account also tweeted Q&As with the cast. Evanna’s answers can be read below:
