Social Media Roundup: Celebrations and Nostalgia Abound for Wizarding World Alumni

We are excited to bring back to MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup after our hiatus! Over the past several months, Wizarding World alumni have taken to social media to share life updates, exciting new projects, and even a bit of Potter nostalgia. 

Congratulations are in order for several alumni who have revealed some exciting news on social media. In March, Bonnie Wright announced her marriage to Andrew Lococo in an Instagram post showcasing their unique wedding rings. Since then, Bonnie has shared more photos on her Instagram that give fans an inside look at the couple’s beautiful ceremony.

Warwick Davis (Filius Flitwick/Griphook) also shared some important family news on social media. Davis wrote on Twitter that his wife, Samantha, had fully recovered from sepsis and shared a news story from the Sun that detailed his family’s experience. He hopes that sharing their story will spread further awareness of the condition.

 

 

 

In addition to family updates, several alumni took to social media to promote recent projects they have been working on. 

Jamie Campbell Bower (young Gellert Grindelwald) gave fans an inside look at the hard work that went into the special effects of his buzzworthy role in the fourth season of Stranger Things.
