Coltrane was 72 years old when he passed and has many notable credits in film and television such as the Harry Potter films, Pixar’s Brave (Lord Dingwall), Cracker (Dr. Edward ‘Fitz’ Fitzgerald), Ocean’s Twelve (Matsui), James Bond films GoldenEye/The World is Not Enough (Valentin Zukovsky), and many more. His fellow Harry Potter cast members have been sharing their memories and condolences with fans. Here are the memories and sentiments they have shared:

Though he is notably not on social media, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) shared his condolences, stating: “Robbie was one of the funniest people I’ve met and used to keep us laughing constantly as kids on the set, I’ve especially fond memories of him keeping our spirits up on ‘Prisoner of Azkaban,’ when we were all hiding from the torrential rain for hours in Hagrid’s hut and he was telling stories and cracking jokes to keep morale up. I feel incredibly lucky that I got to meet and work with him and very sad that he’s passed. He was an incredible actor and a lovely man.
