Social Media Roundup: Reminders and Life’s Magic

Welcome back, all you wonderful Muggles! Get ready to catch up with some of the Wizarding World stars in this latest edition of MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! During the past two weeks, there have been anniversaries, posts in support of National Coming Out Day and World Mental Health Day, some reminders to wear face masks and to go out and vote, and much more.

But first, let us ask you this: Do you believe in ghosts? Things tend to get a little spooky with it being October, as Jamie Campbell Bower (young Gellert Grindelwald) found out. We cannot help but wonder which Harry Potter ghost paid him a visit – Moaning Myrtle, perhaps?

 

 

Also tweeting about nighttime adventures, albeit much less spooky ones, was James Phelps (Fred Weasley) who spent some time stargazing. Phelps took advantage of the clear night sky to look at Mars, which was the closest to the earth we will see for another 15 years. The image he shared is truly magical.

 

 

Sharing some of her processes and celebrating her completed and submitted novel was mama-to-be (again!) Jessie Cave (Lavender Brown). Congratulations! We cannot wait to read it when it’s published next year.

Novel. Sent. I’ve never worked so hard in my life and I’m so proud of it, whatever it may be. Thank you to the baby inside of me for staying in long enough for me to finish it. Thank you to my sister, @bebecave, who’s been my editor and with me every step of the way. 💜💜💜Thank you to my beautiful boyfriend, @alfiebrowncomedian who I’ve ignored for quite a few weeks as I’ve become a I AM WRITING A NOVEL super bitch. thank you to the cat who lives opposite who’s watched me crying, pacing and shouting in my room. thank you (sincerely) to the people who’ve watched my stories throughout this process and sent me words of encouragement 💪 but most of all…. Thank you to my mama, who’s looked after my kids so I can write and so looked after me. 🧡🧡🧡 OUT NEXT YEAR! 🌅 🌅

Continuing with the celebration posts that took place this month, Natalia Tena (Nymphadora Tonks) passed her sneakers on to Sophia Topley for the walk they are doing to raise funds for the Orchid Project. So far, they have walked 861 km on the walk to Fatima, Portugal.

 

 

Sharing the stunning photos from her wedding day three years ago was Afshan Azad (Padma Patil). Happy anniversary!

 

 

October 10 was World Mental Health Day, when a lot of people shared their stories, mental health education, awareness, and advocacy to remove the stigma of mental illness. Harry Potter actor Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) shared an insightful post on the importance of taking care of your mind.

 

 

National Coming Out Day takes place annually on October 11. It is a day to bring awareness and celebrate those in the LGBTQ+ community, regardless of if they are “out of the closet.” Advocate Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) shared the following tweet showing his support.

 

 

With COVID-19 cases on the rise, a couple of the Wizarding World stars, such as Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), shared some informational posts about wearing a mask. At the same time, Oliver Phelps posted a short video about stopping the spread of germs with d2p antimicrobial technology.

 

 

 

Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange) posted an image of herself holding her mail-in ballot, reminding her American followers to vote in the upcoming election. Kravitz then shared a video about one of the swing states, Wisconsin.

 

 

 

Have you ever wondered what Tom Felton’s voice would sound like coming out of a chicken? Well, thanks to this post, you no longer have to. Felton announced that he has joined the Community platform, which allows fans to text stars directly. Fans who live in the United States or Canada can now text him at (310) 356-3710.

 

 

Felton also announced that he has joined another social media platform. This time, DracoTok. I mean, TikTok.

 

 

 

We have reached the end of this edition of the Social Media Roundup! Check back in two weeks to see what some of your favorite Wizarding World stars have been up to.
