New York – British actor David Legeno, who appeared as a werewolf in the Harry Potter films, was found dead by hikers in a remote area of Death Valley, California police said.

The Inyo County Sheriff’s Office said the body of Legeno (50) was found early on Sunday morning and a helicopter was used to transport it from the area.

“It appears that Legeno died of heat-related issues, but the Inyo County coroner will determine the final cause of death. There are no signs of foul play,” the sheriff’s office said yesterday.

The burly, London-born, professional boxer and martial arts expert played Fenrir Greyback, the ferocious werewolf, in several of the Harry Potter films. He also appeared on television and in a string of movies, including Snow White and the Huntsman, Snatch, Centurion and Batman Begins.
