Harry Potter Actress Trashes ‘Twilight’
Daniel Radcliffe may be able to recognize the superiority of Robert Pattinson, but apparently such is not the case with his castmate Evanna Lynch.
As reported by Irish Central, Lynch—who plays Luna Lovegood in the wizard-centric Harry Potter film series—granted an interview to Danish Web site kino.dk and made it clear in no uncertain terms that she’s not a big fan of the Twilight series—in particular, sexy vamp Edward Cullen.
“Get over it,” Lynch says of the Bella Swan character. “She’s always talking about how beautiful Edward is. Get over it.”
As for the Twilight series overall, Lynch figures that it doesn’t hold a candle to the Harry Potter collection. “They are good books but I don’t think they are as fantastic as Harry Potter,” says Lynch. “I don’t think they are that good, and for a time I was a bit, like, anti-Twilight. Everyone said it was the new Harry Potter and I don’t agree.”
Lynch had better hope that there’s a spell to protect her from the hordes of angry Twi-hards!
