There are four other recasts if you read on the source. One of them is Michael Gambon of Harry Potter movie series. I think Michael Gambon led a fine role on his performances in Harry Potter as much as Richard Harris originally did.

From source:

Nobody likes recasting roles. It confuses continuity, befuddles audiences and sometimes upsets the original actors. But there are times when such a shake-up in performers is both necessary... and even an improvement.

Michael Gambon ALBUS DUMBLEDORE ("Harry Potter" Series): When actor Richard Harris tragically passed away after "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," Muggles across the globe wondered how the series could go on. Now, with only the two-part "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" left to go, Michael Gambon's interpretation of Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore is the definitive version of the character. While Harris's gentle portrayal of the long-bearded wizard is certainly missed, Gambon's scene-stealing presence has cast a spell on "Potter" fans everywhere.
