It’s always exciting to see what the kids from Harry Potterhave gotten up to in later years – especially those who haven’t remained firmly in the public eye, whether they’re playing farting corpses, an Ed Sheeran lookalike or Belle from Beauty and the Beastin a live action adaptation. 

Someone you may not have heard of in a while is Scarlett Byrne, who played one of Draco Malfoy‘s few female cronies Pansy Parkinson. She didn’t say much, as far as I recall, but spent a lot of time lurking in the background, scowling at Harry (who, let’s get real, was a bit of an irrit sometimes) and looking awesome. 

Byrne is still an actress, having appeared in a couple of things since the ‘HP’ series. But now, she has taken to Instagram to share a different side of herself – posting a stunning nude pic that is going to be in the upcoming issue of ‘Playboy (which has chosen to go back to featuring naked photoshoots, because why the bloody hell not?). 

The caption features the hashtag ‘#NakedIsNormal’ and also indicates that Byrne has written an essay for the magazine which will accompany her pictorial. 

While a bit of a further sleuth through Scarlett’s feed shows that she’s quite the feminist who is all about freeing the nip, she’s got personal ties to the Hugh Hefner empire, too. Turns out she’s engaged to one of Hef’s sons, Cooper, who is also the Chief Creative Officer of the mag. 

Happy 25th Birthday to my favorite human. I love you @cooperbhefner ????

Those are some hectic pyjamas. Either way, there’s no doubt Scarlett is a real vision. Her essay/corresponding photos will be in the March/April issue. Have a gander below:

I’m very proud to be a part of the March/April issue of Playboy. I penned a short essay along with my pictorial titled, “The Feminist Mystique”. A big thank you to @Playboy, the creative team, and @cooperbhefner for such a unique opportunity. #NakedIsNormal
