A noment to remember British-Irish actor Sir Michael Gambon, best known to global audiences for playing Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movie franchise, who died this week aged 82.

His family said he died peacefully in hospital following "a bout of pneumonia"

An actor for more than 50 years, he took over playing Dumbledore for the third instalment of the eight-movie Potter series after replacing the late Richard Harris in 2004.

Gambon played down the praise for his performance and said he simply played himself "with a stuck-on beard and a long robe".

People may also remember Michael Gambon in the lead rolle in the great BBC series The Singing Detective.
