Social Media Roundup: Adventures in the Big Apple

It’s time for another Social Media Roundup, and there sure is a lot to catch up on! Over the past two weeks, our favorite wizarding world alumni have been reuniting with castmates, promoting new projects, attending events, and more. Keep reading to find out what everyone has been up to!

Quite a few wizarding world stars have started the month of October in the city that never sleeps for New York Comic Con. Luckily for Tom Felton (and Drarry fans), his appearance at the convention meant that he was also able to see Daniel Radcliffe’s new play, The Lifespan of a Fact, on Broadway.

Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski) has also been in New York City this week. As well as appearing at his booth at Comic Con all weekend, Dan attended the premiere of the new Netflix show The Good Cop.

And last of the updates from the Big Apple, the cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been having fun in the city over the past two weeks, attending the Lumos Gala Dinner and having a blast at their first-ever Comic Con panel!

After watching this clip of Jamie Parker singing at the Lumos event, we’ve decided that we definitely need a full-length album of Harry Potter singing piano lounge songs.



And although we’re glad that Anthony Boyle (Scorpius Malfoy) and the rest of the cast members enjoyed their time at New York Comic Con, if there was ever a tweet that needed more context, this is it.



There has also been a number of alumni project announcements and updates since our last roundup. Bonnie Wright has released a new video, which she directed for the new single of singer and actress Sophie Lowe.



Emma Watson posted a photo of herself and Reni Eddo-Lodge, whom she interviewed as part of her online book club, Our Shared Shelf. The interview will be out soon, so make sure to keep an eye out!



After teasing fans with news of upcoming new music in July, Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein) has been celebrating the release of her highly anticipated new song, “Moon.”



And in what is probably the biggest project news of them all, Jamie Campbell Bower returned as young Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald trailer!



Finally, everyone at MuggleNet would like to send wishes for a speedy recovery to Ellie Darcey-Alden (young Lily Potter), who underwent surgery recently.



That’s it for this Social Media Roundup! Check back next time to keep up to date with the stars of the wizarding world.

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
