Harry Potter Actor Says Rowling Made Reading Cool
“It’s a credit to Jo [Rowling]. I remember when I was 10, reading wasn’t the thing to be seen doing during on your lunch break or after school. She single-handedly changed that.
“At the end of seven books, lots of readers wanted to try something else – Twilight, The Hunger Games and hopefully lots more.”
Evanna Lynch, who played Luna Lovegood, said: “The Hunger Games is great. When people compare it to Harry Potter, they’re such different worlds. But it is a tribute to Harry Potter for setting the bar.”
