It is a sad day for the Potter fandom, as Hagrid actor Robbie Coltrane has passed away at the age of 72. This feeling of sadness is one Potter fans are, unfortunately, familiar with, as many of the Harry Potter cast members have passed away over the years. Robbie is, in fact, the 30th cast member from the franchise to pass.
While the fandom is mourning a man and actor we have fallen in love with on screen, the cast and crew members of the franchise have lost a dear friend and colleague. Here is what they’ve had to say.
Radcliffe made a statement via Deadline:
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.
