Ashraf Azad, the 28-year-old brother of 22-year-old Harry Potter actress Afshan Azad, has pleaded guilty of assaulting her last May, the BBC reports. Ashraf allegedly was upset that Afshan — known for playing Padma Patil in the Harry Potter movies — was dating a man who was not Muslim. Though Ashraf and father Abdul Azad were cleared of charges of attempted murder, Ashraf is facing jail time. His sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 21.
