Emma Watson and Tom Felton may be busy with their separate projects post "Harry Potter." However, this doesn't mean they've completely forgotten about their co-stars from the film. In fact, over the weekend both stars paid tribute to one of their co-stars from the film who suffered a tragic death over the weekend.
Actress Emma Watson arrives for a dinner to celebrate the work of The Royal Marsden hosted by Britain Prince William at Windsor Castle, in Windsor, May 13, 2014.
Dave Legeno, known for his role as Fenrir Greyback in "Harry Potter," was found dead in the Death Valley dessert of California. The 50-year old star was reportedly hiking when he suffered a heat stroke according to the coroner's report.
Additional reports claim Dave had been dead for four days and if not for two hikers in the area his body would not have been found. A chopper was needed to rescue Dave's body due it being found in a secluded area of the dessert.
Legeno's untimely demise affected a number of stars including "Harry Potter's" Emma Watson and Tom Felton. Both stars took to Twitter to express their grief and pay tribute to Dave.
"Dave Legeno. It was always a pleasure. He was a great talent with a heart of gold and always had time for anyone. He taught me lots, You will be missed mate xx #DaveLegeno," added Felton.
Before having the chance to have worked with Watson and Felton, Dave started out as a bouncer, wrestler and boxer before taking a shot in the film industry. Legeno's first major film role was in the film "Snatch." Last year, Legeno appeared in the BBC series, "Ripper Street."
Before his untimely death, Dave wrapped up production on the action film, "The Last Knights" which also stars Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen.
Dave Legeno will be missed by his "Harry Potter" family and "Potterheads" across the globe.
