Harry Potter’s Evanna Lynch has signed on to appear in Dancing With the Stars in the United States.

The 27-year-old Louth actress is going to be competing for the glitter ball trophy when season 27 of the popular ABC show returns later this month.

She confirmed the news this morning [Wednesday, September 12], where she also announced she was “so excited” to be paired with professional dancer Keo Motsepe.

Other celebrities signed on to appear this season include The Dukes of Hazard’s John Schneider; model Alexis Ren; singer Tinashe; Fuller House actor Juan Pablo Di Pace and Olympian Mary Lou Retton.

It comes as the actress, who played Luna Lovegood in the last four Harry Potter movies, announced earlier this summer that she would be launching her own cruelty-free beauty box.

She revealed her news on her Instagram Stories, where she asked her fans and followers for their input in the project.

She said at the time:

“Launching a cruelty-free beauty box later in the year and would love your input!

“Basically, as most of you know by now, I am very passionate about animals and I also love makeup, and I do not believe that the two should intersect.

“I don’t think that you should need to use animals for makeup.

“However, that is the way the industry is at the moment so that is something we’re trying to change.”
