MuggleNet Exclusive: “Padma Patil” actress to attend Ascendio
Ascendio, taking place at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel on Universal Studios property, will be Afshan’s first Harry Potter conference, and likely the first time that any of the attendees will be able to meet her! Knowing H.P.E.F., we can speculate that there will be plenty of opportunities to meet Afshan during the conference’s three-day run this July 12-15, 2012 (Q&A events, signings, etc.) but this will be true most especially during their night-time park event, called “Night of a Thousand Wizards 2” – which will be Afshan’s first visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park!
“Ascendio” is shaping up to be an incredible experience for Harry Potter fans, with additional special guests including fan-favorite Potter actor Chris Rankin, and TIME Magazine’s Lev Grossman. Their “party in the park” event will also be the only opportunity for Potter fans to wear costumes into the Wizarding World theme park (it’s a private party!), which is something not allowed during normal park operation.
You can find out more about Ascendio on their web site. (Where the official announcement will be live on their site later today.) MuggleNet will be at Ascendio; we look very forward to meeting Afshan, and you, there in July!
