Social Media Roundup: Throwbacks and Thank Yous

Welcome back to another Social Media Roundup! Take a seat and read about how stars from the Wizarding World have shown their gratitude for birthday messages, support, and medical staff, as well as shared their memories from the Harry Potter film sets.

We’re starting off this edition by appreciating and celebrating the improving weather. With spring just around the corner, everyone is enjoying the sunshine. This includes Afshan Azad (Padma Patil), who shared a video on her Instagram page doing exactly that.

Sticking with the Weasleys, our favorite pranksters celebrated their 35th birthday on February 25! Both James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley, respectively) took to social media to thank everyone for the birthday messages they received. James posted on Instagram, showing his followers his birthday meal.

A fellow cast member was among these birthday messages – Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) posted a variety of pictures from the time he’s spent with the twins since meeting them on set.
