Harry Potter had a devil of a time with his muggle Uncle Vernon but sadly he will no longer have to deal with him because the man who played him, Richard Griffiths died Thursday from complications after heart surgery. Regardless of if you had your nose in Harry Potter books or are a fan of the films, Richard's career was rather extensive past what he was lately famous for. Here are a couple of the films that you might've caught him in besides J. K. Rowling's wizard series:


  • Superman 2 - Terrorist #3
  • Chariots of Fire - Head Porter, Caius College
  • Goldeneye - Second Admiral
  • Sleepy Hollow - Magistrate Philipse
  • The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - Jeltz (voice)
  • The Muppets Christmas 2 - Santa Claus
  • Pirates Of The Caribean: On Stranger Tides - King George
  • Hugo - Monsieur Frick
