Paul Grant, an actor who appeared in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, died at the age of 56.
“I’m heartbroken… No girl deserves their dad to be taken away… He was so well known and loved [for his work]. He’s gone too soon,” Paul’s daughter Sophie Jayne Grant said.
According to reports, the actor was discovered unresponsive on March 16 at a train station in London and was subsequently pronounced brain dead. On Sunday, March 19, Paul’s life support was turned off.
Paul portrayed a goblin in the Harry Potter franchise and an Ewok in the George Lucas film. The actor also appeared in “The Dead” (1987) and “Labyrinth” (1986), in addition to “Star Wars” and “Harry Potter”. Paul is also well-known for his work as a stunt performer in movies including “Legend” (1985), “Labyrinth,” and “Willow” (1988).
In a statement, Sophie Jayne said: “I’m devastated. My dad was a legend in so many ways. He always brought a smile and laughter to everyone’s face. He would do anything for anyone and was a massive Arsenal fan. He was an actor, father and grandad. He loved his daughters and son and his girlfriend Maria very much, as well as her kids who were like stepchildren to him. My dad I love you so much sleep tight.”
Paul’s girlfriend Maria Dwyer added: “Paul was the love of my life. The funniest man I know. He made my life complete. Life is never going to be the same without him.”
