Michael Gambon has died aged 82 - Daniel J Radcliffe Holland


Michael Gambon has died aged 82

Actor Michael Gambon known for his role as Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter (since Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) has died in hospital, his family has confirmed. They said in a statement to the Associated Press, via his publicist, that he died following "a bout of pneumonia.".

Daniel payed tribute with a statement via his publicist (source: variety):
“With the loss of Michael Gambon the world just became considerably less fun. Michael Gambon was one of the most brilliant, effortless actors I’ve ever had the privilege of working with, but despite his immense talent, the thing I will remember most about him is how much fun he had doing his job. He was silly, irreverent and hilarious. He loved his job, but never seemed defined by it. He was an incredible story and joke teller and his habit of blurring the lines of fact and fiction when talking to journalists meant that he was also one of the most entertaining people with whom you could ever wish to do a press junket.

“The sixth film was where I got to spend the most time working with Michael and he made the hours spent in front of a green screen together more memorable and joyous than they had any right to be. I’m so sad to hear he has passed, but I am so grateful for the fact that I am one of the lucky people who got to work with him.”
