No post this Sunday.

As some of you might know, Richard Griffiths (the man who played Uncle Vernon in the Harry Potter films) has died.

In honor of him, I’d like to ask my fellow Potterheads to not make any posts on tumblr this Sunday, March 31.

I know going without tumblr is hard- but it’s about time that we made sure that there was absolutely no post on Sunday.

Reblog to spread the word.


Richard [Griffiths] was by my side during two of the most important moments of my career. In August 2000, before official production had even begun on Potter, we filmed a shot outside the Dursleys’, which was my first ever shot as Harry. I was nervous and he made me feel at ease. Seven years later, we embarked on ‘Equus’ together. It was my first time doing a play but, terrified as I was, his encouragement, tutelage and humor made it a joy. In fact, any room he walked into was made twice as funny and twice as clever just by his presence.” -Daniel Radcliffe


'Pass the parcel. That's sometimes all you can do. Take it, feel it, and pass it on. Not for me, not for you, but for someone, somewhere one day. Pass it on, boys.' Which he did. Every time. Dearest Richard Griffiths, we will miss you.
