'Harry Potter' actress escapes murder attempt

Harry Potter actress Afshan Azad, who played Padma Patil in the franchise, was allegedly the subject of a murder plot that took place in her own home, People reports. Azad’s father, Abdul, and brother, Ashraf, were charged with threatening to murder the actress after they allegedly attacked her May 21 in Manchester, England, because they disapproved of her relationship with a Hindu man. Azad’s brother has also been charged with assault. Both Abdul and Ashraf have been released on bail, and will return to court July 12.

    I feel so bad for her. It was probably some kind of attempted honor killing.
    I’m just happy she’s okay. Her father and brother should not have been released on bail.

    Man that awful I am glad she wasn’t hurt. And her father and brother should have remain in jail instead of being released.

    I hope she’s hidden somewhere safe. I can’t believe they were released on bail.

  • amonymous

    That’s messed up.

    The poor girl! Thank goodness they did not succeed…they should absolutely be locked up and denied bail!

  • Doug

    They should be sent to Azkaban.

    They should get locked up in Azkaban. Not cool.

    I saw this yesterday. I really like her in the movies. So glad they didn’t succeed.

      I’m afraid their goal was not to kill her, since they live in th UK where she’s famous and it would have drawn a lot of drama. But they definitely wanted to teach her a lesson.
      Honor killing is so stupid. Poor girl, God bless her heart.

    It was an attempted honor killing because she was in love with a Hindu man according to CNN. When are certain cultures going to evolve. I suppose once they shed their misogynist religion. I would never trust a man who has converted because he probably wanted to belong in the He Man Women Haters Club. We have murder and rape here but none justified by a perverted religion created by a crazy pedophile who went into trances and talked to his “Jin.” Maybe we can call them Death Eaters.
