Dave Legano, who played the villainous Fenrir Greyback in the Harry Potter series, was found dead in a remote region of Death Valley this week.
The Inyo County Sheriff’s Department in California told TMZ the 50-year-old British actor’s body was discovered by a pair of hikers on Sunday. Authorities say the area is so isolated that he may have died three or four days prior.
Officials believe Dave died from heat-related issues. Death Valley is notorious for its extreme temperatures, which regularly reach 115 degrees this time of year. It is almost always the hottest area in the United States, but remains popular with adventure-seekers.
In addition to acting in Harry Potter, Snatch, Snow White and the Huntsmen and more, Dave was a successful mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter in the UK.
He leaves behind a daughter in her twenties.
