As we’ve reported in the past, Evanna Lynch stars in My Name Is Emily, a beautifully moving film about growing up, first love, and loss. The film is now available on VOD and can be purchased from iTunes! You can also see the film in select theaters.
Emily has been living in a foster home ever since her father was institutionalized after her mother’s death. Still, she keeps in touch with him through the birthday cards he sends her every year. As Emily starts at a new school, she catches the attention of her shy classmate Arden. When her father doesn’t send a birthday card on her 16th birthday, Emily decides to take matters into her own hands. Enlisting Arden’s help, she runs away, and the pair set out on a road trip to break her father out of the psych ward. As their journey progresses, Emily and Arden must depend on each other as they learn about life, love, loss, and letting go.
Bonnie Wright spoke to Evanna for Interview Magazine and they discussed the film as well as Evanna’s career choices up to this point. Read a quick snippet below.
WRIGHT: […] what non-negotiable things did you set yourself as an actor choosing material? For instance, with My Name is Emily, what was it within the script that stood out compared to maybe some other things you’d been reading that seemed a bit two-dimensional?
LYNCH: Maybe I am a lazy actor. [laughs] Maybe it is still the writing. Simon [Fitzmaurice]’s writing is so beautiful. It was so poetic and thought-provoking. I think there are a lot of writers that can get away with not being gifted with words. I’ve done a few writing classes in L.A. and they are very focused on the plot and the structure and all that.
Pottermore has revealed some of the cast and crew from the Potter films that will be attending a Red Carpet Gala opening for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 5th. Warwick Davis, Tom Felton, Evanna Lynch, James Phelps and Oliver Phelps along with composer John Williams will attend the Grand Opening event.
The attraction has been five years in the making, and features a stunning recreation of Hogwarts castle as well as Hogsmeade village.
Following in the footsteps of Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Japan, the Hollywood attraction will bring back some of the fans’ favourite rides, as well as a few new surprises.
The park officially opens on April 7th but is currently doing “soft openings” where fans can visit the park with limited rides and stores open. Here’s a quick definition of a soft opening for those of you unfamiliar:
A soft opening is usually a less strenuous opening for the ride or attraction. It might not open at park open or might close before park close. It may open and close periodically throughout the day for minor adjustments or to run routine safety checks, although usually these closures are “soft” closures – they don’t clear the queue, they just cycle and empty cycle or stop the ride after everyone’s off for a moment or two. There may be private events, training or staffing requirements, repairs, media, or inspections that require the attraction be closed an entire day or more during this time. Certain effects or features might not be working yet.
A synopsis of the film may be read below followed by the trailer.
After her mother dies and her father is institutionalized, Emily is placed in a foster home and in a new school where she is ostracized. When her father’s annual card fails to arrive on her 16th birthday, Emily knows something’s wrong. She decides to take matters into her own hands and, enlisting her only friend at school, Arden, sets off on a road trip to break her father out of the psych ward. As their journey progresses Emily and Arden become close, and both come to realize important truths about the nature of relationships, both to their parents and to each other.
