Evanna Lynch Opens Up About How ‘Harry Potter’ Helped Her Overcome Her Eating Disorder

Evanna Lynch shows her stripes while heading to dance rehearsal on Friday (October 5) in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old actress and DWTS competitor recently opened up about how the Harry Potter books helped her with body issues and an eating disorder.

“I wanted to talk about how before Harry Potter, I was quite sick, and how the Harry Potter books really helped me through an eating disorder. And the reason I wanted to talk about it on here, it’s really healing for me,” Evanna told ET. “That is the full story, that’s the only kind of honest way to tell it, and that’s why it was so special because it was the only kind of light that I saw in the world at a very dark time.”

“I could not have gotten through doing the Harry Potter films if I had continued down that route,” she continued. “I just wanna say that once you put yourself out there and believe in yourself, things happen.”

Tune in to Dancing With The Stars on Monday night (October 8) for the “Best Year Ever” themed episode, where Evanna and partner Keo Mostepe will dance the Viennese Waltz to “Hedwig’s Theme.”
