Los Angeles: Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch, who essays the role of Luna Lovegood — feels jealous as Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them — set in the wizarding world of New York in 1926, and a prequel of sorts to the Potter stories — is being filmed.
"I am so excited. Those are my two favourite things: animals and Harry Potter. Eddie Redmayne is going to be fantastic! He's definitely a wizard. I do get a little bit jealous when I think of them filming right now. I miss it,” Lynch told people.com
Redmayne will be essaying the role of Newt Scamander who is a 'Magizoologist' adamant on tracking down an array of magical creatures in 1926 New York. In the prequel Luna is married to Newt Scamander's grandson, Rolf.
Asked when the scene featuring Luna will be flashed?
"I'm just waiting for the call! Fans have been concocting all these scenarios where Luna narrates the film. As if telling it to her children or grandchildren,” she said.
"They didn't go that direction," she added.
