The SWATH family lost another beloved actor Dave Legeno, 50. Legeno was known mainly for his role as the terrorizing werewolf Fenrir Greyback in the Harry Potter films.
His role in SWATH did not require much dialogue. However the scene had plenty of levity as he pummeled the drunken Huntsman demanding to be paid his money.
According to a statement given by the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department on Friday, Legeno's body was located "by hikers early Sunday morning [July 6] 'in a remote wash' near Death Valley’s famed Zabriskie Point [in California]."
Reports state that Legeno could have passed due to heat related problems; however, the coroner has yet to determine the exact cause of death.
Reactions have come from both the SWATH and the Harry Potter families. Sam Claflin tweeted regarding his shock and Potter's Tom Felton spoke of his fondness.
I'm saddened & shocked by the news of Dave Legenos passing. A friendly giant. Honoured to have known him. All my love & best wishes to all.
