Harry Potter actor David Legeno was found dead in Death Valley Sunday.
Legeno, 50, famously appeared as werewolf Fenrir Greyback in multiple Harry Potter movies. The United Kingdom-born man also appeared in the 2000 movie “Snatch,” 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” and in numerous other television and movie roles.
According to a press release by the Inyo County sheriff’s office, Legeno’s body was found by hikers about 7 a.m. in a remote wash below Manly Beacon, west of Zabriskie Point in Death Valley.
Due to the remote area, California Highway Patrol used a helicopter to find and transport his remains.
It appeared that Legeno died of heat-related issues, but the Inyo County coroner will determine the cause of death. There were no signs of foul play, officials said.
