Padma Patil, one of the lesser-known characters in Harry Potter, is now getting a ton of love because of the wonders that thing called puberty did to her.
Known largely as Ron Weasley's date for the Yule Ball in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Padma, played by the British actress Afshan Azad, is all grown-up now and looks absolutely stunning!
Following in the footsteps of her equally-gorgeous colleague in the movie, Emma Watson, Azad is yet another proof that members of the cast have shed their cute looks and have become fine specimens of the human race.
We mean, look...
WE LOVE HOW SHE POUTS HER LIPS
WE REALLY DO
WE ALSO ADORE THAT NAUGHTY SMILE
BUT WE LOVE HER CURVES MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE
SEE WHAT WE MEAN?
Here's the thing: Some are not pleased about her "transformation," going as far as saying that she used a bit of Belo magic (read: plastic surgery) to look pretty. But this gal knows how to handle the fuss. Instead of hitting back at her bashers, the 27-year-old responded by posting good-humored responses on her Twitter account.
As much as I'm flattered, is there a need? 😂🙈 http://t.co/WCBv6Z0QRt— Afshan Azad (@afshan_azad) June 26, 2015

And oh, just a reminder!
Oh and FYI for all you haters,I have NEVER had any form of plastic surgery, so keep your comments to yourself and get your facts straight.✌️— Afshan Azad (@afshan_azad) June 26, 2015
Just like the old saying goes, "For every bad situation, good happens."
You go, girl!
