Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley), and Sean Biggerstaff (Oliver Wood) had some pretty fantastic interactions with Lin-Manuel Miranda as the Potter actors geeked out over Hamilton, and Miranda, in turn, expressed his Potter appreciation.

Felton kicked off the action by tweeting his admiration for Hamilton.

 

 

Miranda seemed pretty pumped by the compliment.

 

 

Felton responded with a pretty tempting offer.

 

 

While Miranda seemed thrilled, Biggerstaff and Rankin suggested that Hogwarts might not be as keen to listen to Felton’s character as their own.

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Felton also had his own request for Miranda.

 

So Miranda took it upon himself to connect some threads between Hamilton and Harry Potter.

 

 

When someone called Felton out for being late to the Hamilton fandom, Lewis got involved.

 

 

 

Miranda was floored! This led Lewis to reveal his own connection with Hamilton.

 

 

And with that comes the end of this week’s Social Media Roundup. Check back next time to see which fandoms might collide via Twitter or what stunning photos your wizarding world favorites might share.
