Father, brother of Harry Potter's Padma charged with threatening to kill her

Tbd-afshanazad070510 The actress who plays Harry Potter wizardmate Padma Patil is involved in a court case in England after her father and brother were charged with threatening to kill her, the U.K.'s Sun reports. Deathly Hallows, indeed.

Afshan Azad's father Abul, 54, and brother Ashraf, 28, had to appear before a Manchester magistrate back on Tuesday on the charge, with the actress' brother also being charged with assault. Afshan was apparently attacked in her home on May 21, though no other details were given.

Court proceedings were adjourned until later this month, the Sun says. Meanwhile, we recommend the 23-year-old Afshan should try moving into the dorms at Xaverian College instead of living at home.
