‘Harry Potter’ Actress Poses Nude For Upcoming Playboy Issue

No, Hermione Granger isn’t the type of girl to strip down for a provocative Playboy photo shoot, but her schoolmate Pansy Parkins doesn’t seem to have any hesitations about it.

Scarlett Byrne, who played Parkins in the final three movies of the “Harry Potter” franchise, recently announced that she will appear in the March/April issue for Playboy magazine. Byrne shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the shoot on her Instagram on Valentine’s Day.

“I’m very proud to be a part of the March/April issue of Playboy,” Byrne said in her Valentine’s Day post. “A big thank you to @Playboy, the creative team, and @cooperbhefner for such a unique opportunity. #NakedIsNormal.”

Playboy announced this week that the magazine will start featuring naked women again after about a year with no nude photos included.

“I’ll be the first to admit that the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated, but nudity was never the problem because nudity isn’t a problem,” Cooper Hefner said. “Today we’re taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are.”

The March/April issue that will feature Hefner’s fianceĆ© will be the first Playboy issue to feature nude women again. Playboy also announced at the start of the week that Elizabeth Elam would appear on the cover.
