HARRY Potter's Evanna Lynch has found herself some magical new housemates in Los Angeles in the form of the Glee cast. And while most would be daunted by a move from Louth to LA, she has settled in well. The Irish actress is expected to return to the UK next month after filming for Sky. "Los Angeles is not a kind place to everyone but she's been very sensible and she's sharing with a few people from Glee who she gets on with very well," an insider told the Herald. "They understand one another because they've all had to deal with a lot of exposure so they're all very friendly. She's given herself a year or so to see how she gets on with her acting career and the fact that she was cast in Sinbad is already a good sign.
Blockbuster "The whole Harry Potter cast have been doing a lot of promotion for their last film together ahead of the awards season so it's also a good idea for her to be in LA when the blockbuster franchise is still fresh in people's minds." She is also set to return to the small screen after landing a part on the highly anticipated series Sinbad. Evanna is currently in Malta where the Sky programme is being shot and the Herald can reveal that the 20-year-old was invited to make a special guest appearance on the final episode of the show. "She didn't actually audition for a part, [TV producers] just invited her to join the cast a few months ago," a well-informed source told the Herald. "She will have a major role in the last episode and there is the potential of her returning as a regular character if the series proves as successful as Sky's other original series like Mad Dogs. "Her character is not all it appears and the series ends on a cliff-hanger so hopefully viewers will get to see more of her." With its extravagant costumes and exotic set, Sinbad is Sky's biggest drama commission to date. The 12-part series rediscovers the legend of the Persian sailor, who encounters mystical creatures and characters on his voyages.
