"I told how I looked up to her. She wrote back and was like a counsellor. She told me anorexia is destructive, not creative, and the brave thing was not to succumb to it," she added.

"I told her I'd love to be in the films and she encouraged that but said I'd need to be well to do so. In the end I think that's why I recovered," said Evanna.
