Social Media Roundup: Staying Home

Welcome back to MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! It’s time to take a look at what some of the stars of the Wizarding World have been getting up to over the past few weeks, from completing jigsaw puzzles to celebrating movie releases, all while staying at home.

Like a lot of us, Emma Watson has been spending her time at home reading. She posted a book recommendation on her Instagram for those looking for their next quarantine read.

 

 

Also supporting reading during this time is Evanna Lynch. She shared just what stories mean to her with Lumos to promote the new audiobook of The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

 

 

Tom Felton has been using his time at home to answer an important question: Which Hogwarts House would Draco Malfoy be Sorted into if he took the Wizarding World Digital test? Let’s just say the result wasn’t quite what Tom was expecting.

Thankfully, something soon came along to brighten Tom’s spirits. He took to Twitter to share his joy about Hamilton coming to Disney+ this July.

 

 

Afshan Azad (Padma Patil) has completed a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle during her weeks in lockdown.

 

 

Jamie Campbell Bower (young Gellert Grindelwald) has taken up gardening, although it appears that he may need some help from Professor Sprout.

 

 

Matthew Lewis has been reflecting on a previously forgotten moment from the early 2000s, when he and Daniel Radcliffe were front row at a wrestling event.

 

 

James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) reunited with their on-screen sister, Bonnie Wright, for an episode of their podcast, Double Trouble.

 

 

 

Natalia Tena (Nymphadora Tonks) also had something new to share with her followers. Her latest movie, Te Quiero, Imbécil (I Love You, Stupid) is now available to stream on Netflix.

 

 

Katie Leung (Cho Chang) posted a trailer of a mockumentary titled Arden: An Actor’s Life, which she appears in. The mockumentary was filmed during her time in Snow in Midsummer at the RSC in 2017. Caution: The trailer features adult language!

 

 

Finally, Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) recognized one of the little-talked-about elements of quarantine.

 

 

And that’s it for this edition of Social Media Roundup! Check back in two weeks’ time to see what your favorite stars of the Wizarding World have been up to.

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"!
