Dave Legeno (12 October, 1963 - ca. 6 July, 2014) was a British actor, boxer, and mixed martial artist. He portrayed Fenrir Greyback in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Part 2.

Born in 1963, Legeno was a cage fighter, but had been a bouncer, debt collector, and wrestler. His nicknames included 'Death Wish' and 'The Enforcer'. His most memorable moment was beating L.A. street fighting legend Kimo Leopoldo at Wembley Arena.

On 6 July 2014, hikers found Legeno's body in Death Valley, California. He apparently succumbed to heat stroke and may have been dead for three to four days when he was found.[3]
