Harry Potter Actress Helen McCrory Passes Away

It’s a sad day for Potter fans as news has come out that British actress Helen McCrory, who plays Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, has passed away at the age of 52.

As per Mirror, McCrory had died in a battle with cancer. Her husband, actor Damian Lewis writes:

“I’m heartbroken to announce that after a heroic battle with cancer, the beautiful and mighty woman that is Helen McCrory has died peacefully at home, surrounded by a wave of love from friends and family…

“She died as she lived. Fearlessly. God we love her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly. Go now, Little One, into the air, and thank you.”

McCrory’s name has gone trending on Twitter and multiple accounts like the Wizarding World Twitter have posted up tributes to her:

McCrory’s death has come as a shock to a lot of fans, and it just so happens to be close to the reported death of another Potter actor Paul Ritter who had died last April 6 from a brain tumor.

Though McCrory is best known for her work in Potter, she had recently starred as the matriarch Aunt Polly in Peaky Blinders; she had also played the role of the daemon Stelmaria in His Dark Materials. Other screen credits include Fantastic Mr. Fox and 2012’s Bond film, Skyfall. McCrory is also an accomplished theater actress having played roles in The Seagull, The Devil’s Disiciple, and Medea.

McCrory is survived by her husband Lewis and their two children Manon, 14, and Gulliver, 13.
