"When you are new to the business, you think if you give a really bad performance, that's one they will print. You will be judged. You just have to be brave."

Robbie Coltrane OBE (born Anthony Robert McMillan, 30 March 1950) is a British actor.

He's probably best known to international audiences as Rubeus Hagrid in the Harry Potter films and as Valentin Zukovsky in the James Bond films Goldeneye and The World is Not Enough, though he's been a staple of British film and television since the early eighties. Getting started in comedy in shows such as The Comic Strip Presents, his big break as a dramatic actor was as Dr Edward "Fitz" Fitzgerald, the complex, alcoholic, chain-smoking criminal profiler in the seminal series Cracker. Coltrane has proven his acting chops in a wide range of roles and productions over his career. As usual The Other Wiki has an article with more information

His latest role in National Treasure, where he portrays a much loved comedian who suddenly comes under investigation for an alleged historical sexual assault, mirrors recent Real Life scandals involving high profile British television stars of The '70s and The '80s (such as Jimmy Savile) being accused of the sexual abuse of adults and children.
