The Libearty bear sanctuary in Romania had a magical visitor recently. Evanna Lynch, the actress who played Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films, visited the bear sanctuary to help us celebrate 10 years of rescuing bears from cruel captivity. Evanna was thrilled to see the rescued bears relaxing and playing in the sanctuary meadows and pools and she made a donation of a special bear to the teddy bear museum which will open to muggles and wizards early in 2016.
The teddy bear is dressed in a Ravenclaw scarf (Luna’s school house in the Harry Potter films) and also a Luna Lovegood/Ravenclaw lanyard which Evanna signed on the front, and wrote a personal message to the sanctuary on the reverse. The “Harry Potter” teddy is now sitting on the museum shelves waiting for the official opening.
