Newswire: R.I.P. Robert Hardy from Harry Potter and All Creatures Great And Small

3 August 2017 3:36 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

As confirmed by The Guardian, actor Robert Hardy—probably best known for playing Cornelius Fudge in the Harry Potter movies—has died. A cause of death has not been given, but Hardy’s family says he died at Denville Hall, a London retirement home for actors. He was 91.

Born in England in 1925, Hardy was the son of a college headmaster and attended the University Of Oxford’s constituent school Magdalen College where he briefly studied under J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Trained as a classical actor, Hardy got his theatrical start at the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon but began appearing on TV shortly after. With a career that ran for 70 years, Hardy had roles in The Troubleshooters, Inspector Morse, and Hot Metal, but his biggest TV role was playing veterinarian Siegfried Farnon on the long-running British drama All Creatures Great And Small.
