Michael Gambon, who portrayed Dumbledore in “Harry Potter,” passed away at age 82.

Michael Gambon, an actor best remembered for his portrayal of Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter film series, has passed away. He was 82.

In a statement, his publicist said, “We are devastated to announce the loss of Sir Michael Gambon.” Following a bout with pneumonia, Michael, a devoted husband and father, passed away quietly in the hospital with his wife Anne and son Fergus by his side.

After actor Richard Harris passed away, Gambon assumed the part of Albus Dumbledore. He gave the part a new tone that was purposefully at odds with how the character was portrayed in the source literature. In 2009, he explained to The LA Times that since he was working with the screenwriter’s words, he saw “no point in reading the books.”

In 1940, Gambon was born in Ireland. He began his acting career on stage, where Laurence Olivier hired him to perform in the National Theatre’s inaugural performance of Hamlet. For his theater acting, he received numerous honors, including three Olivier Awards.

After appearing in the 1986 BBC television series The Singing Detective, he rose to fame as an actor in Britain. His first of four BAFTA Awards came from that performance. 1998 saw the knighting of Gambon.

In addition to playing Albus Dumbledore once again in the Harry Potter series, he was a versatile performer who appeared in movies and television shows like Paddington, Hail, Caesar!, and the BBC’s adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s book The Casual Vacancy.

Although he valued Rowling’s work, acting wasn’t his first priority. In an interview, Gambon stated, “I didn’t do Harry Potter because she authored it. The motivation behind my actions was financial.
