Actor Paul Grant of both Harry Potter and Star Wars has died at age 56
Paul Grant, who had roles in the Star Wars and Harry Potter film series, has died at the age of 56.
Sophie Jayne Grant, Paul’s daughter, told Sky News, “I’m sad.” “No girl should have their father taken away. He was well-known and adored. He left us too soon.”
The magazine claims that after collapsing at a train station in London on March 16, Paul was pronounced brain dead. On March 20, he was officially declared deceased.
A representative for the London Ambulance Service confirmed to Sky News that emergency crews were dispatched to the Euston Road station in St. Pancras. When Paul was being taken to the hospital, his family took the difficult choice to switch off his life support on March 19.
“I’m sad,” Sophie told The Sun. “In many respects, my father was a living legend. Everyone’s face was usually bright with laughter and smiles thanks to him. For anyone, he would go to any lengths.”
After making his big screen debut as an Ewok in Star Wars: Episode VI—Return of the Jedi (1983), Paul went on to co-star with David Bowie in the cult masterpiece Labyrinth (1986).
He was also cast as a goblin in the 2001 film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Those who knew Paul best commended him after his passing for the affection he had for his loved ones.
His girlfriend Maria Dwyer told The Sun, “Paul was the love of my life. “The funniest man I know. He made my life complete. Life is never going to be the same without him.”
Sophie, Paul’s daughter, said, “My dad, I love you so much. Sleep tight.”
