Social Media Roundup: “Not Slytherin, Not Slytherin…”

Welcome back to another edition of MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup. It’s time to catch up with some of your favorite Wizarding World stars about their adventures during the last two weeks, from rehearsals and behind-the-scenes fun to campaigning for the climate and considering what it means to be a Gryffindor.

Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) has set off on a European adventure with The Magical Music of Harry Potter – Live in Concert. He shared a short behind-the-scenes video from rehearsals on his Twitter and reminded fans that they can head to his website to see which stops on the tour he will appear in.



Claudia Kim (Nagini) also gave her followers a look behind the scenes when she posted a photo from the set of her new show, Chimera.

After recently reminding the world that he is a lion at heart, Tom Felton and his dog, Willow, are fully committed to the Gryffindor life. Tom even went as far as donning a pair of glasses and drawing a scar on his forehead to complete his Harry Potter look.

James Phelps (Fred Weasley) put a call out on Twitter for listeners’ stories ahead of the new season of his podcast, Normal Not Normal, which he hosts with his brother, Oliver (George Weasley).



Bonnie Wright’s jam club has a released new flavor this month. She celebrated by posting a photo of what looks like a perfect way to enjoy the preserve, which is on toast for breakfast with a cup of coffee. Bonnie was joined by a feline friend, but any magical creature will make a perfect breakfast companion (just keep an eye on the teaspoons if you’re dining with a Niffler).

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"!
