The Getaway Wiki

Dave Legeno

Dave Legeno (12 October 1963 - 6 July 2014) was an English actor and boxer who played and voiced Eddie O'Connor in The Getaway: Black Monday. He was born in Marylebone, London, England. Before he became an actor, he was a boxer and a heavy, similarly to Eddie O'Connor, the character that he played in The Getaway: Black Monday. Dave was one of the most famous actors to have appeared in The Getaway series. Dave was most famous for his role as Fenrir Greyback in the Harry Potter film series. He also appeared in The Bill, Centurion, Outlaw, Elizabeth: The Golden Age (alongside Glenn Doherty), Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker, Batman Begins and Snatch (alongside Elwin 'Chopper' David).

On July 6, 2014, Legeno's body was found by a pair of hikers in Death Valley, California, United States. The area was so remote a helicopter had to be called in to retrieve him. It appears Legeno tragically died of heat-related issues and may have been dead for three to four days before his body was discovered. He died at the age of 50.


  • The first film Dave starred in was the 2000 London gangster film, Snatch. This is presumably how he got the role for Eddie O'Connor in The Getaway: Black Monday.
