Richard Griffiths has died.
I am sure many will remember him from his numerous roles, from Harry Potter to the The Pie in the Sky TV series and the Naked Gun movie.
He was only 65.

He told a fantastic story about meeting Gregory Peck when he was a young boy.

His parents were both completely deaf and dumb, and so his childhood was quite difficult

Pretty shocked really. A great Actor, loved him in Pie in the Sky plus Harry Potter and what's tragic was he was planning to the States after his operation to do some work and was in no way expecting soon checking out early to the big Theatre in the sky when he passed away during his surgery. Very sad news. :|
