Social Media Roundup: Sharing the Love

Welcome back to MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! In this edition, stars of the Wizarding World have been sharing the love on Valentine’s Day as well as celebrating birthdays and reconnecting with old hobbies, old projects, and old friends.

Whether you love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is a time when people celebrate their nearest and dearest.  This February 14 was no different for the stars of the Wizarding World, who took to social media to share the love.

Evanna Lynch celebrated the day by baking this delicious-looking cake, complete with heart-shaped icing. She also revealed that the photos were originally meant to be featured on the Instagram feed for her podcast, Chickpeeps, but that they didn’t make the cut!



Katie Leung (Cho Chang) also took to Instagram to celebrate Valentine’s Day with her followers, with a play on the well-known “Roses Are Red” poem.

Keen to remind everyone of the true meaning of the day, Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) took to Twitter to share his Valentine’s Day tip.

Also sharing a passion for music was Chris Rankin, who has picked up the violin again to rekindle his old love for the instrument.



Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick/Griphook) is incredibly passionate about every movie he’s ever worked on. These past few weeks, he has been sharing his love for the Star Wars franchise by posting about a very special flight to Orlando. The flight was renamed “The Falcon” for the Virgin Holidays Star Wars Experience, which took fans of the series to Orlando to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney World.




Finally, the cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway took to Instagram to share their love for one special audience member, Kristen Bell, who played Eleanor Shellstrop in The Good Place.

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"!
