The actor best known for his portrayal of Fennir Greyback in the last three ‘Harry Potter’ films has passed away at the age of 50…
Dave Legeno, 50, was found dead this week in Death Valley, California by other hikers and backpackers going through the area who discovered the body on Sunday.
Legeno’s death is currently being attributed to heat exhaustion or dehydration as Death Valley routinely tips over 120 degrees during the daytime hours, and can be particularly brutal on the body.
In the ‘Harry Potter’ films, Legeno played villain Fennir Greyback in the final three movies of the series while also having roles in several other projects including ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and ‘The Raven’.
Prior to working in film full time, Legeno was also a professional mixed martial artist with a 4-3 record overall, but hadn’t fought since 2007 as he turned his attention to acting. Legeno is survived by one daughter.
