Social Media Roundup: Spreading Magic and Love with Lumos
It may be nearly Christmas, but that doesn’t mean that things are slowing down for our favorite Potter alumni. They’ve been busy over the last few weeks, traveling, filming, speaking at UN events, working with Rowling’s charity, Lumos, and much more. Let’s catch up with some of them.
For the Phelps twins, it was a chance to record their first-ever podcast.
Whilst Oliver and I were in Madrid we did the first of our new #DoubleTrouble #socialAudio #podcast . We hope this to become weekly thing of fun talks etc. If you have any ideas on how we can make it to what everyone wants to hear please let us know. #limor #socialaudio ➡️ https://t.co/1OmQL9lCl2 https://t.co/jM9l5GQIrP https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZRLDuaN8O4q6JX-qx_UKZQ ??????
Matt Lewis made some particularly specific British jokes before announcing a new partnership.
At the third stroke, the time sponsored by @acura will be: DRIVETIME! Niche British gags aside, I’m thrilled to have partnered with @acura and to be driving their new MDX. Crazy tech on this vehicle and plenty of room for the dogs. It makes me appreciate life so much that I drive out to watch the sunset and look wistfully over my shoulder. I was caught doing just that here in this completely candid and not at all posed photograph. #AcuraPartner
Dawn French (the Fat Lady) was up to mysterious things backstage – watch this space for more details about what on earth this was all about…

Nat Tena (Tonks) was busy filming, but everyone deserves a break for Thanksgiving.

Meanwhile, Bonnie Wright headed to the UN on behalf of Lumos to talk about why it is important for children to be with their families.

A not so normal day at the office. Had the honour of joining @wearelumos today at @unitednations in a panel on modern day child slavery in orphanages. A highly undiscussed topic that we need to re-educate ourselves about. Did you know on average 80% of orphans have a living parent that they could be living a much healthier life with?

It wasn’t just our Potter alumni who were keeping busy. Alison Sudol (Queenie) released some new music (in between, we presume, a busy Fantastic Beasts shooting schedule!)

Eddie Redmayne headed to the British Library with Lumos to celebrate the opening of the new Potter exhibition, where he met fans.
And finally, it’s that time of year when we are all busy giving gifts, celebrating with our loved ones, and eating a little bit too much. If you’ve got a bit extra to give somewhere, then why not heed Jason Isaacs’ call and support Lumos this year?
It's #GivingTuesday – an entirely apolitical, unquestionably wonderful tradition I'd urge you to uphold. If you can spare cash, pick a worthy cause and donate (you might consider @lumos). If you can't, think of someone who needs help and help them #TheRealThanksgiving
