LOS ANGELES: Father and brother of actress Afshan Azad, who starred in 'Harry Potter', have been charged with threatening to kill her. The 22-year-old actress was cast as Padma Patil, a classmate of the child wizard in the film series.
The actress' father Abdul Azad, 54, and her 28-year-old brother Ashraf are alleged to have threatened her at her home in Manchester, England. Ashraf is also accused of assaulting his sister.
Afshan was allegedly attacked because her family, who are Muslim, did not approve of her relationship with a Hindu man, according to a spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service, People magazine reported.
Afshan first appeared as her character — the identical twin sister of Parvati Patil — in 'Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire', the fourth film in the wizard series. She will also be seen in 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows', the final film in the saga.
According to the Daily Express, they assaulted her when she refused to cut off relations with her Hindu boyfriend. The paper said the two men allegedly confronted her in her bedroom and the assault left her "badly bruised".
That's horrible I hope she's okay now.
