Harry Potter Actress Refuses to Testify Against Family

LONDON -- The brother of a British Muslim actress who starred in the Harry Potter films pleaded guilty to assaulting his sister, after beating her, forcing her to flee her family home and calling her a "slag" for dating a Hindu man.

Afshan Azad, who played Hogwarts student Padma Patil in four of the movies, refused to testify Monday against her 28-year-old brother, Ashraf, 28, and her 54-year-old father, Abul. Both were found not guilty of threatening to kill her.

During the May 21 row at the family's home in Manchester, England, the 22-year-old actress' father allegedly shouted that he would murder the young actress. Scared for her life, she escaped out of her bedroom window and ran to the police, the Manchester Evening News reported.......
