Natalia Tena, the actress who essayed the role of Nymphadora Tonks in the "Harry Potter" franchise, will celebrate her 31st birthday on 1 November, 2015.

Here are a few trivia about the actress:

Tena is a British actress and musician of Spanish descent.

Her parents are Maria Tena and Jesús Tena and she comes from a humble background. She speaks Spanish fluently.

Although Tena attained fame as Tonks in the "Harry Potter" franchise, it wasn't her first movie. Tena made her debut in Academy Award-nominated film "About a Boy."

In 2011, Tena started playing the role of Osha in the popular HBO series "Game of Thrones," based on George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" books.

Tena is a member of the band Molotov Jukebox. She is the main vocalist and sings while playing the accordion.

Tena said in an interview that her family is very musical and that could have influenced her decision to pursue music both as a career as well as a hobby.

"My love of music comes from as long as I remember. I begged my mum to learn piano for a year when I was 4, she wanted to make sure I was serious and I wanted to be Chuck Berry when I grew up! We were a very musical family, my mum would play guitar and her, my dad and aunt would sing and harmonize!" Tena said.

Some of Tena's favourite musicians are Tom Waits, Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin, Otis Reading.

Tena is an alumna of Bedales school -- the same school attended by Minnie Driver, Lily Allen and Daniel Day-Lewis. Reportedly, she was almost kicked out of Bedales for smoking.
