The absolute best perk of being a former Harry Potter actor has got to be the amazing friendships the castmates made. That is what we got a view of this week when Evanna Lynch made it to the final round of Dancing with the Stars.
Lynch played Luna Lovegood in the beloved movies and has been on the reality TV show since September. She and her partner, Keo Motsepe, made it to the final round when the cast sent her their best wishes.

Her friends reached out in touching video tributes. Among those were J.K. Rowling, Emma Watson, Katie Leung (who played Cho Chang), James Phelps (aka George Weasley), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom).
Lewis also sent out a great tweet, wishing his friend luck!

It’s difficult to hate Harry Potter.

Evanna and Keo were able to snag third place in the competition, losing out to Bobby Bones, a country music radio host, and his pro, Sharna Burgess. Judging by the internet reaction, however, they won in the public’s hearts.
