“With a broken heart, I have to say that the beautiful and wonderful Helen McCrory passed away peacefully at home after the battle against cancer,” said Lewis on Twitter. “She was surrounded by a lot of love, family and friends.“
In 2007 McCrory and Lewis tied the knot. Together they have two children. The actress became famous for her role as Narcissa Malfoy-Black in the ‘Harry Potter’ series. She also played Polly Gray in ‘Peaky Blinders’ and Cherie Blair in ‘The Queen’.
“She died the way she lived: undaunted,” Lewis continues. “God we love her and we have been so lucky to have her in our lives. Now go upstairs, darling. And thank you. ”
