Who is Chanel Williams on TikTok? The queen of Harry Potter parodies is going viral


Chanel Williams’ love of all things Harry Potter puts her on the map in a big way, mostly thanks to her hilarious impressions of Professor McGonagall.

Potterheads can all agree that out of all the fan content on the internet, Chanel Williams’ comedic parody videos of the iconic wizarding series take the proverbial cake.

Under the username ‘chanwills0’, Chanel Yasmin Williams has amassed over 2.5 million followers on TikTok due to her hilarious content, as well as 225,000 fans on Instagram and over 170,000 YouTube subscribers.

Williams is best known for her videos impersonating Professor Minerva McGonagall – and we have to admit, her impression is spot-on (especially when it comes to the more confusing aspects of the wizarding world).

Chanel’s uncanny ability to channel the Gryffindor professor is nothing short of… well, magical, and has earned her a huge following online. It even scored him major campaigns with brands like Amazon Prime Video, Wooga Games, and more.

Williams is more than a die-hard Harry Potter fan, she’s also a talented actress, model, and singer. Her StarNow profile cites herself as “a TV, film, and theater enthusiast with experience as an actor, model, and MUA” (makeup artist).

The Northamptonshire-based designer first created her TikTok account in 2020 and has only skyrocketed in popularity since then. In fact, his most viewed video sits at 6 million views (alongside his plethora of other TikToks which have also racked up millions of views).

What can we say – the internet loves a good laugh, especially when Professor McGonogall is involved. (We’ll just have to wait and see if Maggie Smith herself comments on Williams’ near-perfect impression.)
