Attending her first Harry Potter fan event, Afshan Azad, who played Padma Patil in the last five Harry Potter films, is thrilled to attend Ascendio! Fans will get insight into what it was like working on Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, Half-blood Prince and Deathly Hallows, alongside Dan, Emma and Rupert.
Afshan will be doing a programming session where you can hear about her Potter experience and ask her questions, plus there will be autograph and photo sessions throughout the weekend.
Not only that, but Afshan, who is a true-blue HP fan, will be sitting on one of our thought-provoking formal programming panels, adding to a discussion of privilege and race in Harry Potter.
Afshan had to say of Harry Potter and coming to Ascendio:
“My time filming the Harry Potter films was a life changing experience I will never forget. I have taken away memories to last a lifetime and have met such amazing people along the way! We all wouldn’t be here without the dedication and loyalty of the fans and I can’t wait to visit the Wizarding World and all you out there, so we can all share the magic together!
