Post Evanna Lynch shares her ideas on 'Cursed Child' not being part of Harry Potter canon

Evanna Lynch chatted about all things Harry Potter and the Wizarding World, from her early days as a fan before she was cast as Luna Lovegood, to how that changed her life. The actress also had the most interesting comments regarding the eighth and final installment in the series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

For reference, Cursed Child was written by Jack Thorne, with J.K. Rowling giving the plot details and overseeing the script. She did not, however, write the story itself.

There are still those people who'll say, you know, ďI wish sheíd stop, I wish it had just ended with Deathly Hallows and she would stop saying things on Twitter.Ē What would your response be to that?
Evanna Lynch:
I personally just feel like, you know what, Jo is queen of the Harry Potter world. You may not like it, but you donít like everything that happens in your own life. You know, your own life follows trajectories that you didnít plan, so you just have to accept it.

I do understand about some people not accepting Cursed Child, because itís not pure J.K. Rowling. I know she approved everything, and she was so heavily involved in the creative process, but she didnít write it. So, for me, the portrayal of Harry is notÖright.

Yeah. I went to see it on the first night of previews, before the book came out, so I saw it without any bias. I loved it as, likeÖ
Evanna Lynch:
Its own thing.

Yes. And I think itís an incredible piece of theatre. But in my head I donít consider it canon.
Evanna Lynch:
You donít slot it in with the rest of the universe. Iím the same. Itís like, itís speculative, but for me itís not the real Harry Potter world. It just didnít feel like Harry to me. I relate to people who have that purist mindset that if itís from J.K. Rowlingís mind, then it is, but thatís not just her creation, itís a lot of peopleís creations. Itís the same way the films are an amalgamation of so many peopleís visions and opinions of the Harry Potter universe, so you donít have to accept that. Thatís why part of me is always a little bit sad that she didnít write the encyclopaedia.
The two-part Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is now running at London's Palace Theatre, and will come to Broadway's Lyric Theatre this April.

Jo is our Queen no matter what, so I do think Cursed Child is canon. Under their standard would Fantastic Beasts be canon? But I relate very much with Evanna Lynch and Ellie Bate. Classic Harry Potter is perfect, Cursed Child was fun but it just wasn't the same. Just my opinion.
