“Robbie was like the most fun uncle I’ve ever had, but most of all, he was truly kind and compassionate towards me as a child and an adult,” Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter, said on her Instagram Story (via EW). His skill was so tremendous that it made sense he played a giant – he could fill ANY area with his brilliance.”
After the death of his “Harry Potter” co-star Robbie Coltrane, Daniel Radcliffe issued a statement, calling the late actor “one of the funniest people I’ve encountered.” Coltrane, who died at the age of 72, played Rubeus Hagrid in the “Harry Potter” film series and appeared in hundreds of scenes alongside Radcliffe.
“Robbie was one of the funniest people I’ve met and used to keep us laughing constantly as kids on the set,” Radcliffe’s statement reads. “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.”
Tom Falcon Who played Draco Malfoy in Harry potter also pays tribute after the death of beloved actor Robbie Coltrane. He tweets” One of my fondest memories of filming Harry Potter was a night shoot on the first film in the forbidden forest. I was 12. Robbie cared & looked after everyone around of him. Effortlessly. And made them laugh. Effortlessly.”
