‘Harry Potter’ Actor Dave Legeno Found Dead In Desert


Remember  the actor who played werewolf Fenrir Greyback in the film adaptations of the Harry Potter books, Dave Legeno, has died while hiking in California, the US police have confirmed. A pair of hikers discovered the 50-year-old in a remote part of the Death Valley in the early hours of last Sunday, the Inyo County Sheriff said. His death was confirmed by his management on Friday.

Police believe Legeno, who was also a mixed martial arts fighter, died of heat-related issues, but added that the Inyo County Coroner will determine the final cause of death. A helicopter was sent out at the time to locate and retrieve his body.

“There are no signs of foul play,” a sheriff’s department spokesman said. May his sou rest in peace … amen!
