Harry Potter star dies while hiking in California

Harry Potter star David Legeno has died aged 50, while hiking in Death Valley in California.

David is known for his role of villainous werewolf Fenrir Greyback in three movies of the Harry Potter films.

The star was found by two hikers in the area on Sunday. The sheriff’s office has said that it’s likely that David died of heart related issues.

He played the werewolf in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as well as the final two movies in the film franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
