Social Media Roundup: Behind the Screens

Welcome back to MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! As January turned into February this week, stars of the Wizarding World have been updating their followers on their new projects, sharing behind-the-scenes photos, and catching up with the latest trends.

First up, Bonnie Wright has been thinking a lot about clothes lately. She posted a video of herself sorting out her closet on her Go Gently YouTube channel, in which she reflected on some of her choices and shared tips for how viewers could be more sustainable with their clothing.

Also doing some reflecting on clothing choices was Evanna Lynch. She shared a photo from a walk in the park while commenting that she had been “wearing too much black lately and staying indoors trying to get evvvverything done at once so I figured I’d glam up and admire the world this afternoon!!!”

Sticking with behind-the-scenes, Natalia Tena (Nymphadora Tonks) has been taking a look at the Game of Thrones Studio Tour, which opened on February 4. Located in Belfast, this experience will give Game of Thrones fans a look at the sets and artistry behind their favorite fantasy series (much like another magical studio tour we know!).

James Phelps has also been giving his followers a look behind the scenes. He shared a photo of himself, Oliver Phelps, and actor Hayley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense) in Austria. The trio was filming for James and Oliver’s upcoming travel show

Staying with TV shows, Matthew Lewis’s All Creatures Great and Small is currently airing on PBS. The most recent episode featured a particularly testing game of cricket.



Also getting sporting was Oliver Phelps. He has made an appearance over on the social media accounts of soccer team Valencia CF. In a video that played on George Weasley’s love of mischief, Oliver revealed the transfer of soccer player Bryan Gil to the club.



Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick, Griphook) took to Twitter to celebrate his wife’s birthday! He paid tribute to her approach to life in the post, calling her “an inspiration.”



Also celebrating a birthday was Claudia Kim (Nagini). She thanked her followers for all of their best wishes and shared photos of her birthday cake and bouquets of flowers.

Afshan Azad-Kazi (Padma Patil) joined legions of viewers in sharing thoughts on the trending Netflix documentary Tinder Swindler.



Chris Rankin got involved in viral word puzzle trend Wordle. In this game, players get six chances to guess a mystery five-letter word. Each guess helps to reveal the word by highlighting letters grey, yellow, or green, and players have been sharing these colored squares to Twitter. 



However, we think it’s safe to say that not everyone is enjoying this viral trend. Will Dunn (James Sirius Potter) made his thoughts on the game clear after incorrectly guessing the word with only one letter left to guess. Maybe he should try MuggleNet’s own Wizarding Wordle instead!



That brings this edition of Social Media Roundup to a close. Make sure to check back in two weeks’ time to see what the stars of the Wizarding World have been up to.

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"!
