Harry Potter actor Robbie Coltrane passes away aged 72

Robbie Coltrane, the actor who played Hagrid in the Harry Potter films as well as in a LEGO game, has unfortunately passed away at age 72. 

The actor responsible for bringing Rubeus Hagrid to life on the big screen as well as LEGO Dimensions, Robbie Coltrane, has died aged 72 in a hospital near Falkirk in Scotland. 

“For me personally I shall remember him as an abidingly loyal client,” his agent Belinda Wright said in a statement to the Press Association. 

“As well as being a wonderful actor, he was forensically intelligent, brilliantly witty and after 40 years of being proud to be called his agent, I shall miss him.” 

As Robbie previously stated during the HBO Max Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts reunion, “The legacy of the movies is that my children’s generation will show them to their children. So you could be watching it in 50 years time, easy. I’ll not be here, sadly, but Hagrid will, yes.”  

Robbie’s legacy has been immortalised as Hagrid, who has also received several LEGO minifigures as well as a key place in the wider franchise.
