The Opposite of Butterfly Hunting – a young adult memoir
Venue: Kells Theatre
What do you do when fame comes to you as an insecure teenager (is there any other kind?). When you have no real idea who you are but you are being fêted for your performances in one of the most successful film franchises in movie history? This is what happened to Evanna Lynch from Termonfeckin when she scooped up the part of Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter movie series, starting with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in 2007. From there on it was anything but plain sailing for the young actor as she navigated stepping into the life she’d always dreamed of, and finding that she didn’t quite fit... Her critically acclaimed memoir The Opposite of Butterfly Hunting is an honest, open, self-appraisal from a vulnerable human being as she explores the many highs and lows, the up and downs, the tragedy and the glory of growing up. Evanna Lynch will be in conversation with Myles Dungan.
