Want To Be In Potter?
Open casting call for Luna Lovegood

12 January 2006  |  Written by

If you're a girl aged between 13-16, living in the UK or Ireland and you can get to London on Saturday, then you might be the next Harry Potter star.

Warner Bros are holding open auditions for the part of Harry's loopy mate, Luna Lovegood in the forthcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which starts shooting soon. They're already trawled the UK's schools, but are holding the call to make sure they haven't missed out. Casting director Fiona Weir told CBBC's Newsround: "The wonderful thing about Luna is that she can have any sort of look at all, but it's a very particular quality that's important about Luna. I'm sure anybody who knows of the character from the books is aware that she's very otherworldly, she's not like anybody else."

The audtions are taking place between 10am and 2pm on Saturday January 14, at the Central Hall Westminster, Storey's Gate. Girls need to bring a passport to prove their age and are asked not to wear make-up, a costume, or high heels as the casting people want to see their potential Lunas as themselves.

Not a major character!
Unless she has a bigger role in Half Blood Prince (which i haven't yet read) surely they could afford to do away with Luna Lovegood. She doesn't after all, drive the story forward.For that matter get rid of Tonks as well - a ridiculous character, reminiscent of Marmalade Atkins. Taking into consideration the size of Order of the Phoenix, it would be doing the viewers a favour to get rid of these minor figures. That said they could cut a lot of the book down as the first half is mainly waffle! By More
