The mighty Auror has fallen and his journey in the magical world is now complete. This word comes as actor Brendan Gleeson has announced he has finished his role as legendary Auror Mad-Eye Moody in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Noting that he completed filming less than two weeks ago, the Hollywood Reporter cites "Gleeson noted he just wrapped filming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" and bid farewell to his Mad-Eye Moody. "I waved goodbye to him a week and a half ago. It was great fun, playing Mad-Eye was a hoot."

Actor Brendan Gleeson made these remarks in the press room last night as he was celebrating his win at the Emmys  as "Best Actor in a Mini-series" for his role as Winston Churchill in the HBO special "Into the Storm." You can see photos of the actor at the Emmy Awards here from Getty. Congratulations Brendan Gleeson!

It is too bad that Mad Eye had to die. But Mr Gleeson did a wonderful job in that Mini Series and I congratulate him on his well deserved Emmy

I hope they keep his death exactly like it is in the book and they don’t change it in order to try and add some dramatic scene.

What does that mean, “Moody lives”? He dies. Hope they actually manage to capture the death-scenes right in this movie!
Congrats to Gleeson for the Emmy!

I thought he was brilliant in GoF. I always looked forward to his scenes. It’s a pity he’s gone. : (
