It comes after many HP actors spoke out in support of the transgender community following controversial comments made by Rowling.

Not to mention Rowling was barely involved in the recent reunion special that aired on New Years Day.

As quoted by Independent.ie, Evanna told GB News, "I think there's things we don't all agree with and don't understand."

"I've talked to all the cast, they all have great respect for her even if they don't agree with her beliefs."

"I really strongly disagree with the narrative that there's a rift," the Luna Lovegood actress said.

"She has her beliefs and she's doing her thing."

Evanna continued, "We all have strong beliefs and it's been a very difficult conversation."

"I want there to be healing and I don't want us to keep fighting, so I reject that narrative that there's been a cold shoulder."

The actress also shut down speculation that Rowling's lack of involvement in the reunion had anything to do with the controversy.

Evanna explained, "I think she's busy writing books."

"I don't think that was about the conversations that have been had about more controversial issues."

"I think she was busy and she was never on the sets very often. She's still a big part of it."
