Life and career
Legeno was born David Ronald Murray in Marylebone, London, England. He tried to change his last name to Legend, however, due to handwriting issues, it was read as "Legeno".
Legeno's first major film role was in Guy Richie's Snatch. He had roles in Batman Begins, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Centurion, and Last Knights. Most notably, Legeno played the werewolf, Fenrir Greyback, in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, and Part 2.
Legeno lent his voice to the videogame The Getaway: Black Monday as a protagonist, Eddie O'Connor. He was trained in various combat styles, including boxing, wrestling, judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Muay Thai.
Legeno lived in England with his daughter, Wendy, his only known immediate survivor.
His body was found by a pair of hikers on 6 July 2014, in Death Valley, California, United States. Due to the remote area, a helicopter was called in to retrieve his remains. Legeno died of heat-related issues and may have been dead for three to four days before his body was discovered. No foul play is suspected.
The film Last Knights was dedicated to his honour.
