Author Details

Angel Shaw is a Core Features Senior Writer on Screen Rant's Movies/TV and Harry Potter teams. She holds a bachelor's degree in language interpreting and is passionate about all things culture and communication—especially in how it relates to popular media throughout history (from Shakespeare to Friends to Game of Thrones). 

Industry Focus

Angel specializes in Harry Potter and the Wizarding World franchise, having read the books and watched the movies too many times to count. She especially enjoys writing book-to-screen analyses, which has expanded to other franchises such as The Lord of the Rings and The Hunger Games. 

Favorite Media

While Angel could analyze the plot and characters of the Harry Potter books all day, she is passionate about any of the comforting binge-worthy classics. Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Pirates of the Caribbean, and all Disney has to offer are never far from her heart.
