Wright mentioned that “in addition to being an exquisite actor, he was forensically clever, brilliantly witty and after 40 years of being proud to be referred to as his agent, I shall miss him.”

Wright mentioned Coltrane is survived by his sister Annie Rae, his ex-wife Rhona Gemmell and his kids Spencer and Alice.
