Without Hagrid, there is no Hogwarts

Aside from being a great friend, Felton went on to detail how professional Coltrane was. The actor shared that he learned a lot from the late star. he added,

Robbie knew how important it was to know your lines, to be on your mark, to play in front of the camera. We learned our trade from watching him. He gave us all a great example of how to master the basic skills of being on set, but never in a boring or condescending way. Although he routinely had to deal with an overwhelming amount of hair, makeup, suits, and suits, he somehow managed to create an environment that allowed us all to be fun.”

Felton ended the speech by sharing how much Coltrane meant to the franchise and how much he missed his friend. he finished,

“And Robbie was endlessly cheerful. He was constantly sassy. Most of all, he was always kind.

Without Hagrid, there would be no Hogwarts. And no one can or will ever play that gentle giant half like my lost friend Robbie Coltrane.”
