We have very sad news to share. Actor Dave Legendo, who played werewolf Fenrir Greyback in three of the ‘Harry Potter’ films, has died at the age of 50 years old.

British actor Dave Legeno played many amazing roles in his lifetime. From parts in Snatch. to Snow White And The Huntsmen to Batman Begins, Dave was an actor who could play any character with skill. He died from heatstroke in a remote area in California, according to a release from the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department.

This is heartbreaking. Dave died from heatstroke in California’s infamous Death Valley, a release from the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department explains.

The release, from July 10, details that early in the morning of July 10, the sheriff’s department was notified that “remains had been discovered in a remote wash below Manly Beacon, west of Zabriskie Point in Death Valley.”

Because the body was located in such a remote area, a helicopter was ultimately used to transport the body.

“It appears that Legeno died of heat related issues, but the Inyo County Coroner will determine the final cause of death,” the report states. The report also notes there are no signs of foul play in this tragic loss.

Dave’s manager, Rick Bassman, confirmed the actor’s death on July 11, according to People.

According to Dave’s IMDB page, he currently has two movies in post production, titled The Last Knights and Sword of Vengeance.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Dave’s family and friends during this very difficult time. We’ll never forget his memorable character, Fenrir Greyback, in Harry Potter.
