On Sunday, August 19, Afshan Azad — perhaps better known as Padma Patil from the Harry Potter series — married fiancé Nabil Kazi. Several other familiar faces were in attendance at the ceremony, including costars Bonnie Wright and Katie Leung, resulting in a bit of a Harry Potter reunion!



Azad had the night of her life, posting online:

Yesterday was the most epic night. My handsome husband and beautiful in-laws went above and beyond and blew me away with the most magical Walima party. Historically, the first wedding to EVER happen in this venue, it was absolutely breathtaking. My very own Royal Wedding!

Fans probably remember Azad best for her scenes at the Yule Ball as Ron Weasley's date in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

She didn't seem to have much fun that night.

Despite the gorgeous setting...

It was never meant to be. We know Azad was much happier with her real wedding, but that doesn't mean she's forgotten about her Harry Potter days.

Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley, posted on her Instagram:

Over the moon to have been there with you today Afshan. We love you so much! Congratulations to you and Nabil, wishing you so much joy in your married life together.

Katie Leung, who played Cho Chang throughout the series, also posted a picture with this caption:

Celebrating our beautiful bride @afshanazad's special day. #walima

Azad's wedding seemed to go much better than Padma's Yule Ball experience.

This mini reunion seems to have gone better than one between Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Matthew Lewis (Neville), who ran into each other in Los Angeles on the same day as Azad's wedding.

Felton made another attempt to lure Lewis to the dark side, but a true Gryffindor would never budge.


It seems that being a part of the Harry Potter cast means you'll always have a friend when you need one!

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
