Legendary Scottish actor Robbie Coltrane passed away on Friday, October 14th. Fans around the world were distraught upon hearing the news. Robbie has had an impressive career starring in iconic movies and TV shows such as Crackers and James Bond. It held a special place in my heart. That was Harry Potter. Robbie Coltrane played Hagrid, the gentle giant everyone loves in the magical world of Harry Potter. Hagrid was a mentor and father figure to Harry himself and to his friends Hermione and Ron.
While Harry Potter fans mourn the passing of Robbie Coltrane, the cast of Harry Potter, who spent a decade with the actor and created many memories, really feel his absence.
The main trio of Harry Potter films was that of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, who played Harry, Ron and Hermione respectively. All three stars have paid tribute to Robbie on social media.
Emma Watson took to Instagram to write a beautiful message to the late actor on her story. Her full tribute reads:
“Robbie was like the most delightful uncle I have ever had, but most of all, he cared deeply for me as a child and as an adult. It makes sense he played a giant because it’s unfathomable.He can.Robbie, if I was as kind as you on a movie set, your name and in memory Please know how much I love and respect you I really miss your sweetness, your nicknames, your warmth, your laughter and your hugs. You made us a family Please know that you were it for us. There was nothing better than Hagrid. You made being Hermione a joy.
