Actor Robbie Coltrane, Who Played Harry Potter, Has Away.

Although the cause of Robbie's passing has not been made public, osteoarthritis pain was a major issue for him.

Tragically, 72-year-old Robbie Coltrane has passed away. He played the endearing half-giant Hagrid in the Harry Potter movie series. The iconic actor spent his final days at the Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Scotland. He also portrayed a detective in the James Bond flicks The World Is Not Enough and GoldenEye and the crime drama series Cracker.

His poor health, which has been worse since 2016, was the cause of the limited roles as he fought osteoarthritis pain that was almost always present. When Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike ride at Universal Orlando opened in 2019, Robbie was spotted looking ill and in a wheelchair.


"Robbie was a special talent who won three straight Best Actor Baftas for his portrayal of Fitz in the Granada TV series Cracker in 1994, 1995, and 1996. He shared the Guinness Book of Records Award for this feat with Sir Michael Gambon. Robbie's agent, Belinda Wright, paid homage to Robbie as she broke the news of his passing. "He will undoubtedly be best known for decades to come as Hagrid in the Harry Potter films," she added.


The actor has also received tribute from Mathew Lewis, who played  Neville Longbottom. He wrote: "Robbie," Bobser. He referred to me as Space Boy. We both enjoyed exploring the last frontier. "Robbie Coltrane was a legend, a wonderful actor, and a humorous person."

Robbie was J.K. Rowling's favorite choice to play Hagrid, and when asked who she would want to see play the part, she quickly replied, "Robbie Coltrane for Hagrid." "The legacy of the movies is that my children's generation will show it to their children so that you could watch it in 50 years time, simple," Robbie said in reference to the Potter 20th Anniversary Special. Sad to say, Hagrid will be present instead of me.
