An X-Men actress known for her role as Psylocke will be handing over her social media accounts to B.C.'s top doctor for a day.

The Ministry of Health confirmed today that Dr. Bonnie Henry will be taking over Olivia Munn's social media accounts.

It's part of the #Passthemic movement where celebrities are handing over their social media accounts to COVID-19 medical professionals across the world on June 30.

Munn has 816,000 followers on Twitter and 2.6 million followers on Instagram.

"The COVID-19 pandemic is dominating news channels, social media and our daily conversations. With such an overwhelming amount of information, it can be hard to cut through the noise," according to ONE World's website. "That’s why we’re launching #PassTheMic, so that we can hear directly from the experts and frontline workers. Each day, celebrities including Julia Roberts, Danai Gurira, and Hugh Jackman will hand their social media channels over to medical experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci, frontline workers like Dr. Tsion Firew of Columbia University, and policy experts like Nigeria’s former finance minister Ngozi Okonjo Iweala."

Henry, beloved by B.C. residents, has multiple social media fan clubs, and is known for her cool, collected demeanour when delivering the province's daily COVID-19 updates.

She's been featured in the The New York Times and had Fluevog shoes designed after her.
