First we get excited with the saga of Harry Potter and, now, the films of Fantastic animals breaking schedule & # 39; s in the impressive Magical World of J.K. Rowling. All fans are waiting for the premiere of "The Crimes of Grindelwald" (November 16) to continue enjoying the story.
In this list we pay homage to the actors who gave life to beloved characters of Harry Potter and today they rest in peace.
1. Richard Harris (Albus Dumbledore)
We all knew him as the Dumbledore of the first two films of the saga (The Philosopher's Stone and The Secret Chamber). He died in October 2002 as a result of Hodgkin's disease at the age of 72, just two weeks before the premiere of the second film of the saga.
2. Alan Rickman (Severus Snape)
The low tone of his voice made his character Severus Snape even more enigmatic. He participated in the 8 films of the saga and eventually his most human side was discovered. Rickman died on 14 January 2016 because of pancreatic cancer. He was 69 years old.
3. Dave Legeno (Fenrir Greyback)
The terrifying werewolf was a Death Eater who helped Voldemort in the two magical wars. It appeared in the three final films of the sage (Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows 1 and 2). Legeno was found dead at the age of 50 in the Death Valley National Park, California, in 2014.
4. John Hurt (Garrick Ollivander)
Considered by the magical world as the best wall maker. He owned the Varitas Ollivanders store in Diagon Alley. He participated in the first and the last two films of the saga. Hurt also gave life to "The Storyteller" for television. He suffered from pancreatic cancer and died at the age of 77 in January 2017.
5. Roger Lloyd-Pack (Barty Crouch, father)
He gave life to the strict Barty Crouch, Sr., the father of the servant who helps Voldemort resume his human form in the movie "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire". It was his only appearance. Lloyd-Pack was also 69 years old when he was defeated in January 2014 by Pancreatic Cancer.
6. Robert Hardy (Cornelius Fudge)
It was the magisterminister who tried Harry Potter for using his wand outside Hogwarts to defend himself against the Dementors. Hardy participated in four parts of the saga. From the Chamber of Secrets to the Order of the Phoenix. He died at the age of 91 in 2017.
7. Richard Griffiths (Vernon Dursley)
One of the most hated characters in the Harry Potter saga. He appeared in 5 of the 8 films. Always with that mustache and bad mood of the bad guy. Griffiths ceased to exist at the age of 65, on March 28, 2013 after his involvement in a coronary operation.
8. Robert Knox (Marcus Belby)
A less important character that appeared in the "Half-Blood Prince" and was invited by Horace Slakhoorn to the Eminence Club with Harry and Hermione. Knox was only 18 years old (2008) when he was killed during a fight in London. He could never see the only film in the series in which he participated (2009).
