B.C.’s beloved provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry is stepping onto an even bigger, virtual stage as she’s set to take over actress Olivia Munn’s Instagram.

The American actress will be sharing her social media platforms with British Columbia’s top doctor for a day to talk about COVID-19 to Munn’s 2.6 million followers.

Dr. Bonnie Henry will be featured primarily on Munn’s Instagram account on Tuesday, June 30 as part of the ONE World Campaign’s #PassTheMic initiative.

The campaign is from ONE, a non-partisan global movement aimed at ending extreme poverty and preventable disease by 2030, co-founded by U2 lead singer Bono

The ONE World Campaign is “demanding solidarity and collective action against COVID-19 from leaders across the planet.”

The #PassTheMic initiative has seen various celebrities hand their social media channels over to medical experts and frontline workers to explain how we can beat the pandemic.

Munn is known for roles on “The Newsroom” and “X-Men: Apocalypse”.

Other celebrity #PassTheMic participants include actors Julia Roberts, Danai Gurira, and Hugh Jackman, who will all be using their platform to give a louder voice to health authorities.

Medical and policy experts who’ve signed on to take over celebrity accounts include top U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Tsion Firew of Columbia University, and Nigeria’s former finance minister Ngozi Okonjo Iweala.

Dr. Henry has won the hearts of British Columbians, having a shoe specially designed in honour of her by a famous B.C. artist, and even having an octopus named after her.
