Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch keeps her long-distance romance alive by flying back to the U.K. to visit her actor boyfriend every two months.
Robbie Jarvis, who turns 30 next month (May16), portrayed James Potter in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
The couple has been dating quietly for three years since meeting at a ComicCon event in Chicago, Illinois, but Evanna, who now lives in Los Angeles, admits the distance between them can be somewhat of a challenge.
"He lives in Cambridge (England) and we see each other every two months, which kind of sucks, but I also feel if we lived in the same place we might be like, 'Oh, I really liked you at a distance'," she tells the Irish Independent.

Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch has become a vegan.
The Irish actress, who portrayed free-spirited Luna Lovegood in the Potter films, now lives in Los Angeles, where she has adopted the healthy culture.
"I love exercise," she tells the Irish Independent. "That genuinely makes me happy. It's not just an L.A. thing. I go to yoga or a Muay Thai class. I just ran a half-marathon.
"I'm vegan now and I've discovered you can be a lazy vegetarian, but you can't be a lazy vegan. You have to really plan your food if you want to eat healthy.

Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch has been put off directing by Hollywood's tough filmmakers.
The Irish actress now lives in Los Angeles, where she's chasing her next big role, and she admits the directors she's meeting at auditions are not as kind and gentle as David Yates, who she worked with on the last four Potter movies.
"I've had auditions here in L.A. where they are so rude," Evanna tells the Irish Independent. "They look at you like you're nothing and they just want to get through you and that just makes me crawl inside myself. I was very lucky to have David Yates bring me out.
"If he sees something he doesn't like, he won't say it directly, he'll just talk to you and ask about the character. His philosophy is that you know the character best and that really gives you the power back and makes you think for yourself."

Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch has credited the film adaptations of J.K. Rowling's books with helping her beat anorexia.
The Irish actress, who played Luna Lovegood in the Potter movies, admits she put her teacher parents through hell when she fell sick with the eating disorder around the age of 10, and they did everything they could to help her get healthy.
But it wasn't until she landed the role of Luna - after writing fan letters to Rowling - that she really turned a corner and found the strength to beat the condition.
"I'm very glad that all that happened to me before Harry Potter," she tells the Irish Independent. "I was very sick and all my parents' time and resources went on me - therapists, nutritionists. My sisters were young at the time and I think they were angry that I was making my parents so down."

Harry Potter Star Evanna Lynch Is Encouraging Fans Of The Magical Movies To Audition For The Upcoming Spin-off Series Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, Because That's Just How She Landed Her Big Break A Decade Ago.
Lynch made her movie debut as Luna Lovegood in the fifth Potter film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, in 2007, and admits she got the role after responding to a casting call on fansite MuggleNet in January, 2006.
Producers of Fantastic Beasts have turned to the same website in search of girls aged eight to 12 for the role of Modesty in the film adaptation of author J.K. Rowling's 2001 book.
Lynch took to her Facebook page on Monday (13Jul15) to encourage diehard Potter fans like her to take a chance and audition for a role that could change their lives.

The actress, who played kooky student Luna Lovegood in the franchise, is teaming up with the French branch of the Compassion in World Farming organisation to discourage the cruel method.
Lynch tells People.com, "I'm a passionate animal rights advocate. I wanted to find a charity that was more moderate. I love the work of Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), but I think it isolates a lot of people. But everyone can agree that even if they're fine eating animals, they don't want them to suffer unnecessarily."
The film takes a light-hearted yet clichéd look at being gay at high school.
Teen comedy GBF is set for release on DVD this week, after enjoying a modest outing (sorry) at various film festivals throughout January. With a cleaverly-written, light-hearted script and a peppering of quality jokes, captioned stills from the film are bound to make their way on to Tumblr before you can say "gay best friend."
'GBF' Stars Michael J. Willett As A Gay Teen Who Is Fought Over By Wannabe Prom Queens.
Michael J. Willett stars as Tanner, a high schooler who, like his best friend Brent Van Camp (yeah, seriously) is gay. The trouble is, no one in the high school has come out yet which would mean a whole lot of unwanted attention for Tanner if he was the first. However, the more social Brent learns that the new "must-have" accessory for the school's popular girls is a "GBF": a gay best friend, which is supposed to be a fast-track to prom queen glory.
Tanner and Brent Van Camp have been best friends for ages and both happen to gay, though the rest of North Gateway High don't know it. They've never been what you'd call popular; all Brent wants is to be surrounded by friends, while Tanner is perfectly comfortable with his lack of status and attention. When Brent discovers that the new must-have girl accessory is a GBF (that is, a Gay Best Friend) he plans to come out of the closet and finally become part of the popular crowd, but Tanner finds himself unwittingly exposed instead and immediately dragged into the high school's main clique of Caprice, 'Shley and Fawcett, who intend to fight it out between themselves as to who gets the GBF. Meanwhile, Brent feels abandoned and jealous, and Tanner has to decide who his real friends are.

Sharply important themes make this film a lot more important than its wacky style might suggest. It's essentially Mean Girls remade with a gay twist, and the smart script continually acknowledges that fact. There's also plenty of surprisingly deep subtetx, which adds weight even when things start to get a bit silly.
The story centres on Tanner (Willett), a 17-year-old who isn't quite ready to come out of the closet, then is inadvertently outed by his best pal Brent (Iacono). Suddenly, the leaders of the school's three cliques (Pieterse, Bowen and Roquemore) descend on him: the first out gay student, he'll make the perfect accessory as a Gay Best Friend. And wannabe activist Soledad (Levesque) latches on to him so she can launch a gay-straight alliance. But as Tanner strains to fit the stereotype, he finds himself increasingly distant from Brent and their pals (Tarlov and Mio).
Director Stein shoots this in the colourfully wacky style of a Glee episode (without the songs), but even though everything is just a bit over the top, the screenplay grounds the situations and characters with stinging wit and subtle commentary on big issues like peer pressure, bullying, repression, religious intolerance and the reason girls like to hang around gay boys. This lets the likeable actors deepen their characters in ways that continually catch us off guard.
