Patil Twins Back for Order of the Phoenix
Feb 13, 2006
Manchester Online reports today that actress Afshan Azad will return to her role as Padma Patil in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix film. The article says that Afshan has “already been to read-throughs, costume fittings and make-up sessions, for the new film in which experts will make her look identical to her on-screen twin, played by Birmingham actress Shefila Chowdhury.” Filming for the fifth Harry Potter movie began last week in England.
In a related note, Movie Insider has actor John Cleese (Nearly Headless Nick) listed as returning to the cast for Order of the Phoenix. This is still unconfirmed at this point, and we will update you with more on this when we can. Thanks to Martin for the link!
