What Has Evanna Lynch Been Doing Since Harry Potter?

"Harry Potter" remains one of the biggest film franchises in the world even more than a decade after the final release, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2." The big-screen saga, which is based on the magical books by J.K. Rowling, made household names out of many of its young actors.

Among the breakout stars was Evanna Lynch. Lynch, despite her hilarious reaction to the first book, played fan favorite Luna Lovegood in four of the eight films and was generally praised as perfect for the role (via Culturess). Luna is an aloof, eccentric girl who attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and gradually becomes more and more critical to the central plot as the series goes on.

Still, with Lynch not as active in the industry as co-stars Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint following the end of the "Harry Potter" movies, fans might be wondering what the performer has been doing in the years since.

Lynch has taken up podcasting and become an author

Since the end of the "Harry Potter" series, it would seem that much of Evanna Lynch's life has revolved around vegan activism. In 2019, she narrated the short film "Behind the McChicken Wrapper," and in 2021, she starred in the short film "You Eat Other Animals?" Lynch has also launched two podcasts, "The ChickPeeps" and "Just Beings," and a cruelty-free, vegan, and clean beauty box called Kinder Beauty.

She has continued to act in movies and on television shows, starring as the titular character in Simon Fitzmaurice's drama "My Name Is Emily," playing Abbie Fox in Jason Mewes' comedy "Madness in the Method," and taking on voice acting roles in such projects as "Middle School Moguls" and "Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." She also appeared on two episodes of the BBC One crime series "Silent Witness" in 2021.

In 2018, Lynch was a contestant on Season 27 of "Dancing with the Stars," coming in third place (via TV Insider). And in 2021, she published a memoir titled "The Opposite of Butterfly Hunting: The Tragedy and the Glory of Growing Up," which details her struggles with anorexia, her time making the "Harry Potter" films, and other aspects of her life.
