There's no Hogwarts without you, Robbie. Tributes are pouring in for Robbie Coltrane, who played Hagrid in the Harry Potter films and died Friday at 72. Harry Potter himself, ​​Daniel Radcliffe, honored his former co-star in a statement. "Robbie was one of the funniest people I've met and used to keep us laughing constantly as kids on the set," Radcliffe said. Remembering "fond memories" of Coltrane "keeping our spirits up" on the set of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Radcliffe said he feels "incredibly lucky that I got to meet and work with him." J.K. Rowling also called Coltrane an "incredible talent" and a "complete one off," whom she was "beyond fortunate" to know. During the HBO Max Harry Potter reunion, Coltrane reflected on the legacy of the films and the fact that people will still be watching them in 50 years. "I'll not be here, sadly," he said. "But Hagrid will."
