Robbie Coltrane, a beloved Scottish actor, passed away today at the age of 72, his representative told Deadline.

The James Bond, Cracker, and Harry Potter actor passed away at a hospital close to his Larbert, Scotland, home. The distinguished actor had been experiencing health issues for the previous two years.

Coltrane, a larger-than-life comedy personality, is most known for his memorable role as Rubeus Hagrid, the Hogwarts groundskeeper, in the Harry Potter films.

He received worldwide fame and admiration for his endearing performances and on-screen friendship with Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter, enjoying enormous popularity as Potter’s half-giant/half-wizard.

Coltrane earned three straight BAFTA awards for best actor for his portrayal of forensic psychologist Dr. Edward “Fitz” Coltrane in the murder mystery series Cracker in the UK, a feat only matched by actor Michael Gambon. He was also nominated for a BAFTA for the BBC Scotland drama Tutti Frutti and the Channel 4 drama National Treasure.

Additionally, the actor delivered standout performances in the films Nuns on the Run, Mona Lisa, and Ocean’s 12.

He co-starred as Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky, a former KGB agent turned ally of Agent 007, in the James Bond movies GoldenEye and The World Is Not Enough.

On March 30, 1950, in Rutherglen, Scotland, Anthony Robert McMillan became John Coltrane. In his early 20s, he adopted the stage name Coltrane in honor of jazz saxophonist John Coltrane and made his stage debut in Byrne’s production of The Slab Boys. Before making his television debut in Tutti Frutti and Blackadder the Third, he had early cinema parts in Flash Gordon and Mona Lisa. He was also a memorable Pope in the comedy The Pope Must Die from 1991.

In the 1990s, Cracker enjoyed critical success, and in 2001’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (known as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone elsewhere), Coltrane made his Harry Potter debut. Coltrane reportedly topped J.K. Rowling’s list for the part of Hagrid, and when asked who she would most want to see play the character, Rowling reportedly replied, “Robbie Coltrane for Hagrid” in a single swift breath.

He received the OBE in 2006. He leaves behind two kids.
