Robert Hardy, the veteran actor who played Cornelius Fudge in the Harry Potter films, has died.

In a statement Thursday, Hardy's family said he was also "a meticulous linguist, a fine artist, a lover of music and a champion of literature, as well a highly respected historian, and a leading specialist on the longbow".

The statement also described Hardy's life as "tremendous" and added: 'We are immensely grateful to the team at Denville Hall for the tender care they gave during his last weeks'.

In recent years, Robert was well known for his work in the Harry Potter films as Cornelius Fudge, the minister of magic.

With his grandiose stature and his eloquent speaking voice, Hardy spent most of his career playing famous and powerful men in history, like Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Robert also portrayed Winston Churchill nine separate times, in television series "The Woman He Loved" and "The Wilderness", as well as on the West End stage.

Hardy's other well-known roles included the BBC's 1994 version of Middlemarch, TV mini-series The 10th Kingdom, 80s comedy Hot Metal and the mini-series Bramwell, as well as the BBC's adaptation of Dickens' Little Dorrit in 2008.

In November 1981, Hard was awared a CBE at Buckingham Palace by Her Majesty The Queen for services to acting.
