A “Harry Potter” star’s brother and his pal died while train surfing “extremely drunk,” contacting overhead wires carrying 25,000 volts of electricity in East London, according to an inquest proceeding this week.
Ben Haddon-Cave, 27, and Paddy Bolster, 26, were found a mile apart on the Overground line between Stratford and Hackney Wick on March 21.
Haddon-Cave, whose sister Jessie Cave played Lavender Brown in the “Harry Potter” films, was found by firefighters after a neighbor raised the alarm just before 1 a.m.
He also worked as a music producer and an actor who was expected to play the lead role in an upcoming film.
His other sister, Bebe, starred as Wilhelmina Coke in ITV’s historical drama “Victoria.”
His pal of seven years was a student at Aberystwyth University and had come to London that afternoon to go to a comedy show.
Coroner Mary Hassell said during an inquest Friday at Poplar Coroners’ Court the pair “died on the 21 March 2019, Benjamin Haddon-Cave on the railway track adjacent to Hackney Wick railway station in London, Patrick Bolster adjacent to the Stratford railway station in London.”
