Tom Felton honors Robbie Coltrane in heartfelt tribute
Harry Potter alum Tom Felton honors late co-star Robbie Coltrane with a heartfelt tribute in an exclusive essay, reported E! News on 30th March, which would have been Coltrane’s 73rd birthday.
Remembering his co-star and “dearly missed friend”, Felton expressed the late actor set a great example for the younger cast while starring in the beloved magical franchise Harry Potter. According to Felton, in the early days, the cast was divided into two groups mainly children and adults, as much of the cast was aged 9 and 13 while senior actors including Maggie Smith, Richard Harris, Alan Rickman, and Coltrane were older, some even in their seventies.

Robbie Coltrane, who played the beloved gamekeeper at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, however, was very much involved with both the kids and the grownups managing to be an adult and a child altogether. Recalling their time together, Felton expressed the actor knew how to have fun with the younger cast despite being “well-versed in any topic you might care to mention”. According to Felton who played the young Slytherin Draco Malfoy, “the older actors valued and respected his experience”.
“He had more mischief in him than a common room full of Slytherins”, stated Tom Felton elaborating that although Coltrane undoubtedly had the mind of an adult, in his heart he was very much a child, “mischievous” and “high-spirited”.

Coltrane was a true professional who understood the importance of knowing one’s lines and being on mark, continued The Flash actor. Recalling an incident from their first table read for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001), the 35-year-old actor wrote, Robbie [Coltrane] and Emma [Watson] who were sat side by side swapped characters while introducing themselves which made everyone “giggle into our scripts”. The incident taught the then-young actor a valuable lesson that they should “approach this endeavor with a sense of fun”.
The Borrowers (1997) actor added that the younger cast learned the importance of nailing their “basic skills” while on set with Coltrane. Felton, 35, said that the senior actor created an environment of playfulness allowing them to be kids while they worked on the film.
Nonetheless, Coltrane was “always kind” concluded the Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) actor adding that no one could ever do justice to Rubeus Hagrid’s character the way Robbie Coltrane did.
