J.K. Rowling Helped Luna Overcome Anorexia.
Apparently, Lynch had suffered from the age of 11 and wrote Rowling to thank her for the books, which gave her "hope".
Lynch told Britain's The Sun, "I told her the books gave me hope, particularly Luna Lovegood. I told how I looked up to her. She wrote back and was like a counsellor."
"She told me anorexia is destructive, not creative, and the brave thing was not to succumb to it. I told her I'd love to be in the films and she encouraged that but said I'd need to be well to do so. In the end I think that's why I recovered."
