We know it's been a fair few years since Harry defeated Lord Voldermort but nothing makes you feel old like learning one of his classmates will be appearing in the new issue of Playboy.

Scarlett Byrne, who played Slytherin bully Pansy Parkinson has posed nude for the March/April issue of Hugh Heffner's iconic magazine.

She commented that, "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"

The title is borrowed from the seminal feminist text of the same name by writer Betty Friedan. Scarlett now lives in Los Angeles and continues to act, though looks a little different from when she was cooking up potions with Hagrid and the crew.
