The actor was reportedly found unresponsive on Thursday, March 16 at a train station in London and was declared brain dead at the scene. Grant was taken off life support on Sunday, March 19.
Grant played an Ewok in the George Lucas franchise and played a goblin in the Harry Potter franchise.

Grant is also acclaimed as a stunt performer in productions like 'Willow' (1988), 'Labyrinth' and 'Legend' (1985).
In a statement to The Sun, Sophie Jayne said, "I'm devastated. My dad was a legend in so many ways. He always brought a smile and laughter to everyone's face. He would do anything for anyone and was a massive Arsenal fan. He was an actor, father and grandad. He loved his daughters and son and his girlfriend
Grant's girlfriend Maria Dwyer added, "Paul was the love of my life. The funniest man I know. He made my life complete. Life is never going to be the same without him."
