Behind the scenes
- Jarvis Cocker portrayed Myron in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
- Jarvis also appeared in the movie Fantastic Mr. Fox as Petey along with Michael Gambon playing Franklin Bean, Helen McCrory playing Mrs. Bean, and Alexandre Desplat composing the music.
- In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, a character named "Vocalist" can be unlocked. It is safe to assume that Wagtail is the "Vocalist".
The name "Myron" is derived from Greek μυρον (myron) meaning "sweet oil, perfume". Myron was the name of a 5th-century BC Greek sculptor.
