At the age of 72, actor Robbie Coltrane passed away. His acting career included roles in Bond films, Cracker, and Harry Potter.

His agent confirmed the information on Friday.

Coltrane received the OBE in 2006 for his services to drama, and in 2011 he received the Bafta Scotland Award for outstanding contribution to film.

In a statement, Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter, paid tribute to Coltrane, saying: “Robbie was one of the funniest people I’ve met and used to keep us kids on that set laughing constantly.


Anthony Robert McMillan, the Scottish celebrity’s real name, was born in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, in 1950.

Coltrane attended independent school Glenalmond College in Perth and Kinross. He was the son of teacher and pianist Jean Ross and GP Ian Baxter McMillan.

The actor’s career began in 1979 with the TV show Play for Today, but he rose to fame in the BBC comedy series A Kick Up the Eighties, which also starred Rik Mayall, Tracey Ullman, and Miriam Margolyes.
