I have been following Evanna since I was a child reading and watching the Harry Potter series and am so proud of her and what she stands for. She provided me inspiration for getting through my case of anorexia when I was 12-13 years old. Now, 8-9 years later, I am a borderline vegan and I feel convinced that I should adopt veganism completely. Thank you for interviewing her! 😀 Evanna, thank you for being so awesome and inspiring!

Great to hear from Ivanna, a very honest and open young actor and I wish her every opportunity to show her artistic skills on stage and on tv, and the screen! I am relieved to see you are finally interviewing a woman… I am very amazed that Ivanna is the only woman you have interviewed out of the very many people you have listed. I hope you allow more women on your site!
