Social Media Roundup: If Percy Weasley Can Do It…

Welcome back to another edition of MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! Get ready to catch up with some of your favorite Wizarding World stars as they celebrate Earth Day, share throwbacks, hit the golf course, and get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Earth Day is held every year on April 22 and is all about protecting our planet and combatting the environmental crisis. Bonnie Wright shared a video to her Instagram talking about some of the actions she has been taking offline to help the planet.

Also using their social media presence to raise awareness was David Bradley (Argus Filch). Bradley celebrated International Guide Dog Day on April 28 by sharing an adorable video of a guide dog’s first year of training with their volunteer.  



There was lots of looking back over the past two weeks, with a number of Wizarding World stars sharing throwbacks. Tom Felton shared a scene from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.



Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) took his followers back to 2010, when he joined the Old Vic Theatre in London for its annual  24 Hour Plays event alongside actor and presenter James Corden.

Even the Melbourne production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was in a throwback mood. In honor of International Dance Day, the account shared a video of clips of the “wand dance” from around the world. 



Elsewhere, James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) reunited for an Instagram Live…

And finally, is Matthew Lewis really a wizard? Some might say that it’s a coincidence, but the power of his DIY skills over the soccer scores speaks for itself.

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"!
