Social Media Roundup: Passion, Perseverance, and Positivity
In this week’s roundup, we take a look at the different activities and projects that our favorite Harry Potter alumni have been busy with. From attending award ceremonies to helping charities, they continue to accomplish incredible feats, and of course, we couldn’t be happier for them!
Daniel Radcliffe’s exciting news entails his new role in Miracle Workers – an upcoming comedy also starring Owen Wilson – so prepare for lots of laughs!
Just like Dan, Rupert Grint will also be in the spotlight, thanks to the renewal of Snatch, in which Rupert and the cast “have created memorable characters” for the TV show’s viewers. The second season of Snatch will launch in 2018, so get ready to see more of Rupert as a gangster. We can’t wait!

Meanwhile, Emma Watson was busy attending the MTV Awards, where she won the first gender-neutral acting award, for Beauty and the Beast. Congratulations, Emma!

Preferring to engage in more fun, Matthew Lewis appeared to have a wonderful time at Ottawa Comiccon with numerous friends.
Oliver Phelps looked thrilled to be in Edinburgh for the European Professional Club Rugby, although we still prefer seeing Oliver cheering for the great Quidditch match between Ireland and Bulgaria. Don’t you?
And when he isn’t passionately watching the rugby, Oliver spends his time volunteering at children’s charities to put smiles on children’s faces. Alongside other volunteers, Oliver completed a surprise garden makeover for a young girl to play in. What a heartwarming tale with one half of our favorite twins!
Like Oliver, Dame Maggie Smith showed her support for charities by attending the Presidential Awards with Judi Dench, Tamzin Outhwaite, and Samantha Bond. These awards were organized by theatrical charity Acting for Others to celebrate its most supportive fundraisers.
And Danielle Tabor, who played Angelina Johnson in the Potter films, is all about self-love and fitness, which we think is awesome!
LIFE CONTEMPLATION BEING TAKEN VERY SERIOISLY: ? 1st leg of the US tour DONE! Life hasnt gone exactly how I imagined. When I was 8 I decided I waned to be an actress. Like @bettemidler She was my idol. She made me laugh & cry all at the same time & did something to me that felt like magic. I wanted to do that. Then ego, fear, teenagedom, other priorities, life happened. The chase for something other than the magic, took over. Just wantin to book a job, prove a point, make some money, not have to work my waitress job, buy a coffee without worrying my card declined. (Actually it still does?) In 2015 I came to LA for pilot season. Whilst family & friends sent me off with “Go be a star” well wishes & dreams of me booking a job like ‘Friends’? I knew it wasnt that easy & whilst I was sure I waned to be creative with my life, I was growing out of love with the industry. Of course I waned something life changing to happen. And funnily enough, it did. Just not the way I ever imagined. But I had this epiphany that I could create the life I waned without bein beholden to an industry that, threw my own issues, made me feel less than. I dint feel like I was doin what I was “meant to b doin” I wasnt passionate or full of excitment about any of it. I wasnt making anyone feel like magic, in fact, it was stealing my magic bit by bit. So I decided to let it go. Stop chasing. Let go of fear. Create a life I waned. Find the passion & connect with myself & other people. This was what Id been missing. And when that happened, somehow space opened up to evolve & grow in a way I hadnt been whilst waiting for life/a job/magic to happen to me. And im not sure how but 2 yrs later from the exact date I left the US, I ended up bk there, to go act in a world tour & have the best time of my life. I dont know exactly what it all means, but I have discovered that we can make choices to sometimes, let go of what we ‘think’ we want & the universe will give us everything we need. My dreams keep evolving & I hope I just stay present & open to whatever is meant for me. Lets connect with each other & ourselves & have scary conversations about what we really want & how we can mk it happen ?
With everyone showing perseverance in their ongoing tasks, it is wonderful to see how they use passion and positivity to achieve them. How do you feel about this week’s roundup?
