Scottish actor Robbie Coltrane, who played Hagrid in the Harry Potter films, has died.
He was 72.
Coltrane’s agent Belinda Wright stated he died Friday at a hospital in Scotland. She didn’t give a trigger.
Coltrane got here to fame as a hard-bitten detective in the Nineteen Nineties collection Cracker, for which he received finest actor at the British Academy Television Awards three years working.
He played mild half-giant Hagrid, a mentor to the boy wizard, in all eight Harry Potter movies. Other roles embrace a Russian crime boss in the James Bond thrillers GoldenEye and The World is Not Enough.
Coltrane gained rave opinions for enjoying a beloved TV star who could harbour a darkish secret in the 2016 miniseries National Treasure.
Wright stated that “in addition to being an exquisite actor, he was forensically clever, brilliantly witty and after 40 years of being proud to be known as his agent, I shall miss him.”
Wright stated Coltrane is survived by his sister Annie Rae, his ex-wife Rhona Gemmell and his youngsters Spencer and Alice.
