The brother of Afshan Azad, who played Hogwarts student Padma Patil in three of the Harry Potter movies, admitted in court this week to assaulting the actress. Ahraf, 28, and father Abul, 53, were also charged with threatening to kill the 22-year-old girl but charges were dropped when she refused to testify, saying she fears for her safety. The two allegedly threatened to kill Afshan when they confronted her at the family home last July because she refused to enter an arranged marriage. They called her a “prostitute” because she was dating a non-Muslim man and after her brother physically attacked her, Afshan managed to escape through a window. Her brother was allowed to post bail on the condition that he does not contact Afshan. “Domestic violence can result, even for a man such as you, in imprisonment,” Judge Roger Thomas warned him. Ahraf is scheduled to be sentenced on January 21.
