Social Media Roundup: Guess Who Is at 1.1 Million Instagram Followers!

Welcome back to all you wonderful Muggles, witches, and wizards. It is once again time to see what some of the Wizarding World stars have been up to in the latest edition of MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! A lot has happened in the last two weeks: a Wizarding World star hit 1.1 million Instagram followers, new merchandise was launched, an audiobook was recorded, actors promoted mental health awareness, and more.

Each year in May, some countries have a mental health week or a mental health month. During this time, information is shared to educate and help those with mental health issues. For 2021, the focus was on the impact of COVID-19 and where people can find support and tools to use to improve their mental health. Among those bringing awareness to the cause was Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), who sang some songs and raised funds for the YoungMinds UK charity on his Instagram account.

Also sharing words of wisdom and an important cause was Afshan Azad-Kazi (Padma Patil), who promoted Boloh, the Barnardo’s charity’s COVID-19 helpline and webchat for those 11 and up.
