Happy Birthday Hagrid

OK - I'm a geek. Today is Robbie Coltrane's 66th birthday. Coltrane plays Hagrid in the Harry Potter movies. In fact when Coltrane was trying to figure out the best way to portray Hagrid - he asked author JK Rowling how he should play the character - Rowling answered something like, "Just be yourself - I had you in mind when I wrote the character."


  1. A very much underrated and entertaining actor. I'm still pissed they killed off his character in the Bond films.

  2. I'm disappointed he wasn't used more in the Blackadder series.
