Emma Watson is showing her respect for her former Harry Potter costar, Dave Legeno.
The 50-year-old MMA fighter and actor passed away last week after suffering from heat-related issues while hiking in Death Valley, CA.
Watson worked with Legeno on the last three Harry Potter films; he played the evil werewolf Fenrir Greyback. Though a few years have passed since the final Harry Potter film was released, Watson is still showing solidarity with her cast mates.
The 24-year-old actress took to Twitter to voice her regret over Legeno’s recent passing. “I’m so sad to hear about #DaveLegeno,” she wrote. “He was such a lovely man. I hope he is resting in peace x.”

According to The Mirror, Watson was not the only Potter star to reflect upon time with Legeno. Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the series, posted a message on Instagram accompanied by a touching on-set photo of himself and the late actor.
