Updated: Robbie Coltrane has died aged 72

Scottish actor Robbie Coltrane known for his role as Rubeus Hagrid in Harry Potter has passed away at the age of 72, his agent confirmed. He had been in ill health for the past two years.

Daniel was among the first to pay tribute and issued a statement on his passing (source: Variety).

Update: The statement is now also online on his official website.
"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."

The actor attended the HBO Max original Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts reunion amongst other cast members in December 2021. The TV special was released in January 2022.
