11. Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood)

The role of the bizarre Luna was a form of treatment for Evanna Lynch. At the age of 11, she was hospitalized for anorexia. She wrote a letter to J.K. Rowling to tell her about her problem and to tell her that she had always wanted to play a role in Harry Potter. The writer replied and they started writing. Three years later, Rowling invited the girl to audition. Evanna managed to shine in front of more than 15,000 contestants and got the role even though she had no experience of comedy. After the Harry Potter films, she starred in 5 other films. Her last work was a role in My Name Is Emily. Today, Lynch participates in Dancing With the Stars.
