Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter actress) has stepped out and is defending author of the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling for her stance on cancel culture and woke. As many may recall, Rowling spoke out in favor against woke and cancel culture putting forth some very intelligent and truthful reasons why the movements are so damaging to our younger society members.
As per FOX, “Harry Potter” actress Evanna Lynch, who played Luna Lovergood condemned cancel culture and defended the author of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling’s political views during a recent interview with U.K. outlet, The Telegraph.
Lynch explained that she grew up near the border of Northern Ireland, an area heavily shaped by the conflict that occurred during the latter half of the 20th century. The actress noted that a recent experience learning about a cast mates’ different views on the “Troubles” – as those in the U.K. refer to the conflict – helped her to realize the true nature of cancel culture.
She claimed that a similar kind of division that existed between those wanting Northern Ireland free and those wanting it to be with the U.K. is affecting society-at-large today.
She said, “I’d had this nice chat with one of the cast – he was so friendly. And then when it got to his turn to share about himself, he said he was a unionist, Protestant, and that he would have seen some of the political figures on the republican side as the devil. I immediately had this sense of ‘Ahh! I thought you were one of us!’”
