Our favourite ethereal actress, Evanna Lynch, is as much friends with beasties on-screen and off.

Like Luna Lovegood who fed the Thestrals in the forest, Evanna Lynch cares for animals every way she knows how.

Recently working on ensuring bunnies can't be kept in cages anymore, Evanna also is a full-time vegan.

The Howart's Alumni is also something of a wizard (eh?) in the kitchen it turns out.

So she hooked up with Peta2 to show off some magical, cruelty-free snacks.

The video includes how to make Chocolate Forgs, Butterybeer and Pumpkin Pasties.

Since Evanna has been walking the hallowed halls of Hogwarts, she has been saving the animals and acting. Her most recent film is called My Name Is Emily.

It is the first feauture by Simon Fitzmaurice, who was diagnosed with ALS a few years ago. He is now paralyzed, and wrote and directed My Name is Emily using only his eyes.

Potter co-star Bonnie Wright (Ginny, obvs) interviewed he ex-schoolmate (am I conflating fact with fiction?) about the move from the popular franchise to regular acting life for Interview magazine. Evanna said of the switch.

I always get asked that question: 'Did Harry Potter hold your back? Was it a help or a hindrance?\ And I always feel like it's been a help—it's up to me to redefine it. Sure, casting directors have preconceptions, but it does open doors, it is a big name. I wasn't the kind of ballsy actress who just wanted people to know me, so I think having that history and that backing was helpful. In L.A., you have to be so assertive. You have to just go for things.

She spoke about how the first couple of years out of Harry Potter she felt disllusioned, nothing she read for was as good as the film. Bonnie agreed saying of the film series,

You realize and respect the importance of good writing. Having now gone to the more practical side of filmmaking and directing, I'm so pleased that everyone who we worked with, through all departments, was just amazing at their craft. I therefore had such great respect and a belief that you have to have integrity, even in a world that is essentially a business. I think it's really important to have a taste for the material and the collaborators—you want them to really be invested in the film industry first through a creative reason.

We know nothing is as good as Harry Potter girls, why do you need to keep reminding us?!
