Social Media Roundup: Birthdays and Throwbacks

Welcome to another edition of Social Media Roundup. This week, wizarding world stars celebrated two special birthdays, shared some amazing throwback photos, wrapped up projects, and lots more. Keep reading to find out what your favorites have been up to.

The end of July brings with it two very important birthdays, and some wizarding world stars took to social media to celebrate the special days of J.K. Rowling and (of course) Harry Potter.

Firstly, Emma Watson posted a photo of herself and Evanna Lynch with J.K. Rowling to celebrate the author’s birthday.



Evanna also sent well-wishes to Jo (and Harry) with a very appropriate word-of-the-day tweet.



Chris Rankin also tweeted his birthday wishes, before posing a very unusual Potter question a few days later.



Elsewhere, Daniel Radcliffe has had a busy couple of weeks. First, he wrapped filming for the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt interactive Netflix special.



Daniel could also be found across various parts of the internet promoting his newest film, Playmobile: The Movie. He even dropped by Radio One to take on their alphabet prank call challenge.



Now for some throwbacks! Gary Oldman posted these film negatives featuring some shots of himself from 1981.

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"!
