Sir Michael Gambon Actor who played Dumbledore in Harry Potter Passes Away Peacefully

Esteemed actor Sir Michael Gambon has peacefully passed away at the age of 82 in a hospital, as disclosed by his family yesterday.

Sir Michael Gambon, a towering figure in British theater and cinema, embarked on a remarkable 60-year career that began with him sharing the stage with Sir Laurence Olivier. Among newer generations, he is fondly remembered for his portrayal of Albus Dumbledore in six of the eight Harry Potter films.

A statement released on behalf of his wife, Lady Gambon, and son, Fergus Gambon, by publicist Clair Dobbs, conveyed their profound sorrow:

‘We are devastated to announce the loss of Sir Michael Gambon. Beloved husband and father, Michael died peacefully in hospital with his wife Anne and son Fergus at his bedside, following a bout of pneumonia. Michael was 82. We ask that you respect our privacy at this painful time and thank you for your messages of support and love.’
