As you can imagine yesterday was a very sad day for me (and no doubt Rach) on hearing that Richard Griffiths had died. The legendary actor who played the evil Uncle Vernon to our beloved Harry Potter will always have a place in the heart of any HP fan. Although most will no doubt despise the character he played, it only meant one thing – he was doing a great job.
May he rest in peace.
In his memory I have pulled out my top 3 Uncle Vernon quotes, I hope you enjoy them!
