Luna's Radish Earrings Designed by Evanna Lynch
Last week we had our first look at official photos from the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, including this photo of Evanna Lynch as Luna Lovegood. In the photo she is seen wearing some radish earrings. As mentioned on our recent LeakyMug from California, we can now confirm that yes indeed, Evanna herself designed those radish earrings, proving a what a dedicated (and very cool) fan of the Harry Potter book series she is to bring those kind of details to the movie role of Luna. As mentioned in the latest LeakyMug, she told us on-set that she designed jewelry, but the question of who made the earrings was up in the air when we left.
Also, in this photo of the Trio, you can see them standing in a dark room , in front of a dirty old looking fireplace. WB has confirmed to us that the photo is indeed from the Hog's Head Inn at Hogsmeade. :)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be released next year on July 13, 2007.
Here is the link to the hi-res photo where you can see the earrings better.
Julie Walters Talks More on Order of the Phoenix
Julie Walters has given a new interview where she talks more about Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Remarking that the sets for the new movie are "amazing," Julie also mentions the role of the Weasley family in this new movie (“Oh yeah, Christmas; we have a very good Christmas"), as well as working with the new director David Yates.
And working with new Potter director, David Yates, has been fabulous. She mentioned David brings a new style and feel to the set compared to Chris Columbus and Alfonso Cuaron. “He’s very unassuming; they were in a way, Alfonso was, but he’s fantastic. [David] is very into the emotional truth of it, the kids absolutely love it; he’s very sweet and kind, and very, very into the story like a child is. And he’s really into the emotional depths, and he’s really fantastic, he’s a lovely man.”
And David sets a different vibe on set as well. “It’s great, cause they all like him, and that’s important; he doesn’t shout or anything like that. There always is when there’s a different director; it’s very easy going. And it was always with Chris, and with Alfonso, it was just different ways. [David] is very unassuming, but he really knows his stuff.”
