If she's anything like her character, Evanna Lynch who played "Luna Lovegood" will add a dreamy, fairy-like touch to the newest season of "Dancing With The Stars." 

The actress, as well as singer Tinashe, are the latest additions to the upcoming 27th season of the popular dancing show according to US Weekly magazine.

Tinashe, who is 25, rose to popularity with her debut single "2 On" back in 2014. The song reached No. 24 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Last season's winner of DWTS, Adam Rippon, made a brave statement after his success when he hosted 2018's TrevorLIVE New York Gala in June. 

He arrived at his first red carpet appearance with Finnish boyfriend Jussi-Pekka Kajaala. The two posted pictures together on social media before, but this was their big public debut.
