Paul Ritter, the British actor best known for his roles in ‘James Bond’ and ‘Harry Potter’ has died at the age of 54.

Ritter was previously been diagnosed with a lethal brain tumor.

As The New York Post reports:

“It is with great sadness we can confirm that Paul Ritter passed away last night,” his agent told the Guardian.

“He died peacefully at home with his wife Polly and sons Frank and Noah by his side,” the agent said, confirming he had “been suffering from a brain tumor.”

Ritter was initially known as a stage actor, and was nominated for an Olivier award in 2006 for “Coram Boy” and a Tony for his 2009 starring role in “The Norman Conquests,” the Guardian said.

He also appeared in a number of high-profile movies, playing Eldred Worple in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” and government adviser Guy Haines in the 007 movie “Quantum of Solace.”

In the Harry Potter movie, he played a bad guy. In real life, he was a good guy. So sorry.
