Costar Tom Felton Pays Tribute on Twitter:
Tom Felton, who played Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, wrote on Twitter,
“One of my fondest memories of filming Harry Potter was a night shoot on the first film in the forbidden forest. I was 12. Robbie cared & looked after everyone around of him. Effortlessly. And made them laugh. Effortlessly.”Tom Felton
He continued in another tweet,
“He was a big friendly giant on screen but even more so In real life. Love you mate – thank you for everything xx”Tom Felton
Emma Watson Shared Heartfelt Words on Instagram:
Emma Watson, the Hermione actress, took to Instagram to share her heartfelt words to honor Coltrane:
“Robbie was like the most fun uncle I’ve ever had, but most of all, he was deeply caring and compassionate towards me as a child and an adult. His talent was so immense that it made sense he played a giant — he could fill ANY space with his brilliance.”Emma Watson
Watson continued with,
“Robbie, if I ever get to be so kind as you were to me on a film set I promise I’ll do it in your name and memory. Know how much I adore and admire you. I’ll really miss your sweetness, your nicknames, your warmth, your laughs, and your hugs. You made us a family. Know you were that to us. There was no better Hagrid. You made it a joy to be Hermione.”Emma Watson
The two costars joined others in honoring the legacy of Robbie Coltrane including Daniel Radcliffe, Matthew Lewis, James and Oliver Phelps, Bonnie Wright, and David Thewlis. Read their touching tributes here.
