MuggleNet wishes happy birthday to Professor Snape and Imelda Staunton!

Characteristically, Snape may not be too happy about it, but today we’d like everyone to join us in wishing a very warm, enthusiastic, and heart-felt happy birhtday to our favorite Potions professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! He would have been 53 today if he hadn’t been, well… we’re sure you’re familiar with the story.

We at MuggleNet would also like to wish happy birthday to Imelda Staunton, the actress who portrayed Professor Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter film franchise.

Were you aware these two celebrities from the Harry Potter fandom shared the same birthday before we told you? If not… for shame! But we’d like to remind you that you can keep up with all of the birthdays, all of the conventions, and all of the most significant dates from the Harry Potter book series for a whole year by purchasing the MuggleNet 2013 fandom calendar.
