Crazy, insta-fame world.

Last month, the folks doing the new Harry Potter movie had tryouts for a new character named Luna Lovegood. 15,000 young girls showed up to audition for the role. On February 2, the studio announced that the part had gone to Evanna Lunch. She is not a celebrity and has not acted before.

And someone has decided to create a fan page for the girl.

In fact, looking at internet records, it appears that someone bought the domain name and started designing the page on the exact day that it was announced that Lynch had gotten the part.

Y’know, when you create a fan page for someone, it’s usually because you like their work. You think they’re a great musician, or an amazing basketball player or whatever. But this girl hasn’t fucking done anything yet!! Are you a fan of the way the letters in her name stand next to each other? Do you greatly admire the way she was able to not blink during her press photo?

In conclusion, world = fucking crazy, thank you.

  1. y’know, i wouldn’t really get hot and bothered about this. seems like there are a lot more crazy things in the world. for instance, vice president dick cheney shooting a 78-year-old man in the face. i would also like to point out after visting the site that i bet her publicist is behind it, knowing that rabid fans will visit and start buzzing about her/the site/ etc. looks like it worked.

  2. Evanna Lunch? You’re serious?

    …that’s not a made-up name, like Amanda Hugginkiss or Ivana Tinkle?


    Boggles the mind.

  3. You know the scary thing? She looks like a cross between Malfoy(sp?) and Ann Coulter…

  4. LOL, while those are certanily admirable
    traits, that’s not actually why I registered

    The reason I registered that domain so quickly
    were actually a culmination of the fact that
    Luna Lovegood’s indifference to others’
    opinions of her has made her my favorite
    character in the HP books, and when I saw
    Evanna’s picture, I realized she looked very
    close to how I had picturing Luna this entire
    time. I registered the domain because I read
    that she was a HP fanatic for “years and
    years”, had gone to all of the HP book
    premieres, things like that, and was amazed
    that such an avid HP fan was actually having
    her dream being realized. I registered the domain
    because I knew I would love her soon enough,
    and for once in my life, actually felt the
    desire to open a fansite, and felt that it would
    actually be able to go somewhere and be of use
    to HP fans across the world.

    And then, of course, the reason it has grown
    so large in such a short amount of time has
    been due to the fact that Evanna has since
    given several interviews and shown that
    she is not only the ideal image for Luna
    Lovegood, but that she’s extremely humble,
    intelligent and caring, as well, which has already
    gained her a huge fanbase. She’s shown that
    she has depth and is truly living her dream.

    I hope this cleared some things up for you. :)

  5. […] Doh! I guess we made some sort of back-end changes to the blog when we upgraded, because dozens of comments that y’all made were waiting for approval by me, and therefore weren’t on the site (including one by the webmaster of a site I’d given a bit of a ribbing). Sorry about that. I went ahead and made the changes, and hopefully comments will get up in a timely manner from now on. […]
