“Actually when [the filmmakers and I] were deciding on the look [of Luna] we used a lot of [Harry Potter] fan art to decide on the hair and clothes and things like that. They knew I was a fan and they asked if I had anything in mind and I was like, ‘Oh, yeah.’ […] For some reason, they missed that she was blonde and had long hair and I was like, ‘Wait, no, she needs to have long hair, and it needs to be all flowing and kind of crazy looking. [On dying my hair] we actually wanted it a bit darker than it was but my hair was kind of knackered from all the dying. So, we settled on bright blonde. But, it sort of added to making her kind of ethereal.” — Evanna Lynch, Runway Magazine (Fall 2012)
