A Scottish legend has died.
The creator of the renowned Rubeus Hagrid from the Harry Potter books, Robbie Coltrane, has away at the age of 72.
The Scottish actor Robbie Coltrane has died, according to reports. The trade informed Coltrane’s management company, WME, of his passing. Over the previous few years, the actor has struggled with a number of health problems.
On March 30, 1950, Robbie Coltrane was born. He is an actor, comedian, and writer. Anthony Robert McMillan is the man’s actual name. Even though Coltrane began performing in his 20s, it wasn’t until he appeared in the comedy series Alfresco—which also starred Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, and Emma Thompson, one of his Harry Potter co-stars—that he began to receive notice.
The Harry Potter and James Bond franchises are where Robbie Coltrane is most well-known for his work. Prior to accepting the role of Rubeus Hagrid in the eight Harry Potter films that were made between 2001 and 2011, he played Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky in the two James Bond films.
The late Queen Elizabeth II bestowed the OBE to Robbie Coltrane, a titan of the acting world, in 2006.
We send Robbie Coltrane’s family and friends our sincere condolences. He’ll be terribly missed.
