Richard Griffiths has died at the age of 65.

He reportedly passed away on Thursday (March 28) after complications following heart surgery.

The British actor was most recently seen in the play The Sunshine Boys alongside Danny DeVito.

Griffiths had an acting career spanning over 30 years, first appearing in the 1975 movie It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet.

Since then, he has had roles in much-loved films such as Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Hugo, as well as classic TV series including Pie in the Sky, Minder, The Sweeney and Bergerac.

Griffiths won a Laurence Olivier Award and a Tony Award for 'Best Actor' when he starred in the play The History Boys.

He most notably appeared as Uncle Vernon in the Harry Potter series and as Uncle Monty in Withnail & I.

His Harry Potter and Equus co-star Daniel Radcliffe told BBC News: "Richard was by my side during two of the most important moments of my career. I was proud to know him."

Griffiths was appointed an OBE in the 2008 New Year Honours.
