'Harry Potter' Actor David Ryall Dies at Age 79
Sad news – British actor David Ryall has passed away.
Best known most recently for his role as Elphias Doge in the seventh Harry Potter film, 2010′s Deathly Hallows: Part 1, he died at age 79 on Christmas Day.
His daughter Charlie also later confirmed the news via social media.
Our thoughts go out to her and all of David‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
Please take a moment to remember his huge five-decade-spanning career outside of the more well-known TV & film. Not just Harry Potter.
