Harry Potter actor Robbie Coltrane dies at 72

Scottish Actor Robbie Coltrane, who played Hagrid in the Harry Potter films has just passed away at the age of 72.

“Robbie will probably be best remembered for decades to come as Hagrid… a role which brought joy to children and adults alike, prompting a stream of fan letters every week for over 20 years,” according to a statement released by his agent Belinda Wright.


While being a stand-up comedian as of late and starring in various movie roles in the 80s he is most known for playing the lovable Rubeus Hagrid in all of the Harry Potter Movies.
