Social Media Roundup: Remember to Wear a Mask and Enjoy the Moment
Welcome back to another edition of MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! During the past couple of weeks, the stars of the Wizarding World have posted about adorable puppies, an engagement, wearing a mask, sports, important causes, creative projects, and more!
The majority of people are still experiencing lockdown because of the pandemic, which can make it difficult to fuel the creative fires. But these Wizarding World alumni have been resourceful and creative with their time while keeping safe. When they have had to venture outdoors, they wear a mask. Katie Leung (Cho Chang) and Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) even shared posts with a touch of humor on mask tips.

Even though we haven’t seen much news coverage on the Black Lives Matter protests recently, that doesn’t mean they are not still happening. Katie Leung took to her Instagram and posted a reminder for justice that included an image of Breonna Taylor, the EMT who was shot and killed in her home on March 13, 2020.
Bonnie Wright had guest Leah Thomas on her Instagram Live recently. The pair talked about intersectional environmentalism, the climate crisis, social justice, and Leah’s platform that she founded.
Bonnie Wright also shared an image of a boy playing in his yard with a drilling site right behind, bringing attention to Bill AB 345, which would enforce a distance between people’s homes and drilling sites.

Fans of Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) were responding to cryptic Twitter posts, worried that something was wrong. It turns out, he was watching soccer.
Thanks for all the concerned messages. I'm fine, just watching the football ⚽️

Also getting into the sport was Matthew Lewis, who posted an image thanking and celebrating his team.
Speaking of celebrations, Anna Shaffer (Romilda Vane) shared some photos of when she was in Whitstable. Going through them, you can see a picnic set-up, various foods, and a photo announcing her engagement! Congratulations – we wish you both all the best.
Doing some stargazing, James Phelps (Fred Weasley) saw and photographed the comet Neowise, which passed by recently. The comet was discovered in March and was visible in certain locations for 70 days. It truly is magnificent.
Holding a little pup, Tom Felton can be counted on when it comes to posting adorable puppy content.
On the official 007 Instagram page, there was a photo of Harry Potter’s Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort) as M and Daniel Craig as James Bond from the set of No Time to Die. While it has concluded filming, due to COVID-19, the release is among the many others that have been delayed.
Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) shared a funny two-minute short video made in quarantine with Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) called Das Fone Hell. It is about what happens when Neill goes out shopping for groceries, forgetting his phone at home.
