Harry Potter actor Dave Legeno has been found dead in a remote part of California’s Death Valley, authorities say.
Mixed martial arts fighter Dave Legeno, 50, was found by hikers on July 6 and his body was recovered by helicopter.
There were no signs of foul play and it is believed the British actor died from the heat, an initial coroner’s examination found.
Dave Legeno appeared as werewolf Fenrir Greyback in three Harry Potter movies, including both Deathly Hallows films.
“It appears that Legeno died of heat-related issues, but the Inyo County coroner will determine the final cause of death,” the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a statement.
Dave Legeno also appeared on TV and in movies including Snow White and the Huntsman and Batman Begins.
He was set to star in an upcoming film titled Sword of Vengeance prior to his death.
Dave Legeno is survived by a daughter, US media report.
