Richard Griffiths, a versatile British actor who won a Tony Award for “The History Boys” and played the boy wizard’s unsympathetic Uncle Vernon Dursley in the “Harry Potter” movies, has died. He was 65.
Agent Simon Beresford announced Friday that Griffiths died a day earlier of complications following heart surgery at University Hospital in Coventry, central England.
He paid tribute to Griffiths as “a remarkable man and one of our greatest and best-loved actors.”
