Michael Gambon – Dumbledore Fame in ‘Harry Potter,’ dies at 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.”

Gambon was born in Ireland in 1940. Laurence Olivier hired him after seeing him perform on stage for the first time in Hamlet, the National Theatre’s inaugural performance. He received numerous honors for his stage performances, including three Olivier Awards.

After playing a prominent role in the 1986 BBC series The Singing Detective, he rose to fame as an actor in Britain. He received his first of four BAFTA Awards for his performance. In 1998, Gambon was knighted.

He was a versatile actor who appeared in films and television roles like Paddington, Hail, Caesar!, and the BBC’s adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s book The Casual Vacancy in addition to reprising his role as Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter series.

Although he was a fan of Rowling’s writing, as an actor, acting wasn’t his first priority. She authored it, so I didn’t do Harry Potter, remarked Gambon in an interview. “I did it for the money,” the subject said.
