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!

Just as long as he dies better than how he did in “In Bruges”.

Good job and now on to other great jobs you were the best at playing Moody. You will be missed.

Brilliant as MadEye Moody and wonderful in In Bruges (which is not PG13 by the way) I look forward to his final, heroic appearance in DH1.

It is going to be strange, watching such a powerful character die. Gleeson did a hell of a good job!

I thought he was so gracious when he accepted his Emmy. HP has so many talented actors working in the films.
