British Actor Dave Legeno Dies
British actor Dave Legeno played many amazing roles in his lifetime. From parts in ‘Snatch’ to ‘Snow White And The Huntsmen’ to ‘Batman Begins’, Dave was an actor who could play any character with skill. He died from heatstroke in a remote area in California, according to a release from the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department.
The actor, famous for playing a role in the ‘Harry Potter’ films as the villain, Dave Legeno has died aged 50, while hiking in Death Valley in California. The actor, who portrayed werewolf Fenrir Greyback in three movies in the wizard film franchise, was found by two hikers in the area on Sunday.
Authorities said Dave died of heat stroke, after an autopsy was performed by the Inyo County Coroner. What’s more, it is thought his body may have been there for three or four days before he was found. Temperatures in Death Valley are known to reach more than 120 degrees.
County Deputy Coroner Jason Molinar says Legeno’s body was partially decomposed and may have been lying for days in triple-digit heat. There was no evidence of foul play. The Mixed Martial Arts star leaves behind a daughter Wendy who is believed to be in her 20s. Dave, who turned 50 in October last year also appeared as Gilles Rigaut in TV series ‘Spooks’ as well as a League of Shadows member in ‘Batman Begins’ alongside Christian Bale in 2005.
