To mark Playboy’s re-launch of celebrating the female form (we should just say nudity, right?), the angelic actress Scarlett Byrne became the first celebrity model to bless the pages of that momentous issue. “I’m very proud to be a part of the March/April issue of Playboy,” she wrote, telling readers she’d even wrote an essay titled, “The Feminist Mystique” to put the moment in perspective. But her relationship to the famed publication goes even deeper, considering she’s the fiancée of Cooper Hefner, the Chief Creative Officier of Playboy Enterprises.

The English-raised beauty is best known from starring as the character Pansy Park in part of the Harry Potter film franchise. The doe-eyed stunner began her acting career in the 2005 short film CryBaby. Three years later, Byrne land her first TV appearance on the hit British series Doctors. In 2009, she scored her breakout role, starring as the pushy Pansy in the sixth installment of the Harry Potter series. “I kind of imagined her as every bully that I had come across at school, ”Byrne described how she conceived her character, “who wasn’t very nice to me or that I had an unpleasant experience with.” Following her signature role, Byrne starred in the thriller TV movie Lake Placid: The Final Chapter. She’d also score bigger TV gigs, playing re-occurring roles on hit shows like Falling Skies and The Vampire Diaries.
