Today is one for mourning. Earlier, it was revealed that Glee actress Becca Tobin's boyfriend, Matt Bendik, was found dead in a Philadelphia hotel room. (So far, no cause of death has been revealed.) Now, it appears that the cast of Harry Potter has lost one of its own as well.

According to TMZ, 50-year-old Dave Legeno, who the HP community knows as the villainous werewolf Fenrir Greyback, was also pronounced dead this week. Evidently, the British actor/MMA fighter was hiking in Death Valley when he most likely passed away due to heat-related issues… "and may have been dead for 3-4 days before his body was discovered." Wow.



Our hearts go out to his family, including his daughter, at this time.
