Shefali Chowdhury (Bengali: শেফালী চৌধুরী; born 20 June 1988) is a Welsh actress best known for playing the role of Parvati Patil in the Harry Potter film series, except for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), in which the character is played by Sitara Shah.
The youngest of five siblings, Chowdhury was born in Denbigh, Wales to Bangladeshi parents who migrated to the United Kingdom in 1980. At the age of six, she moved to Birmingham, England and attended the Waverley School. She completed A-levels at Solihull Sixth Form College, and studied Media, Communication and Production at Birmingham City University.
Chowdhury is known for her performances as Parvati Patil in the Harry Potter films, starting with 2005's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Chowdhury landed the role of Parvati when she was in her last year at the Waverley School in Birmingham. She and Afshan Azad, who plays the character of Parvati Patil's twin sister Padma Patil, are also good friends, according to Azad.
Although her first role in a film was in Kannathil Muthamittal, the movie for which she won notoriety was Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. In the film, Parvati accompanies Harry Potter, played by Daniel Radcliffe, to the Yule Ball held at Hogwarts. Radcliffe spoke about her: "I had a dance scene with Shefali. She was completely amazing." She is also a friend of actress Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter films.
