  These 10 Harry Potter Actors Might Have Passed Away

…but They’ll Never Be Forgotten

Many of us have grown up with the Potter characters. Sadly the passing of time meant we also lost some beloved actors along the way. My personal favorite character…as is with many Potter-Fans…is Snape. Alan’s death has made me particularly affected.                                        But he will never be forgotten.

“In 1988 Harrison declared: ‘I have a sort of kamikaze side to me that is optimistic. I have to trust Denis O'Brien’s business sense and hope that he is not going to bankrupt me.’ The words were later to prove prophetic.

Harrison, the trusting pop star who had poured millions of his own money into HandMade, found out that he had been duped by his business partner who had encouraged him to borrow massive sums of money.

In 1995 Harrison filed a $25million lawsuit in America against O'Brien for allegedly mishandling his investments and deceiving him for 20 years. He was awarded $11milllion in damages but never received the money as O'Brien declared himself bankrupt. For Harrison the experience was harrowing and friends believed that it played a part in the deterioration of his health, which eventually saw him dying of cancer in 2001 aged just 58.

‘I saw George well into the case and it looked like he had aged 10 years,’ recalls Terry Gilliam.

The late actor Richard Griffiths said: ‘I felt so sorry for him because it was his free-spiritedness that allowed all that work to happen. I just think he was stabbed in the back.’

There’s a song by Baz Luhrmann called Sunscreen. He says, “worrying about the future is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum; the real troubles in your life will always be things that never crossed your worried mind.”
