How tall is Robbie Coltrane?


As revealed in an interview with MSNBC, actor Robbie Coltrane, best known for his role as Rubeus Hagrid in the "Harry Potter" movies, is 6 feet,1 inch tall. Hagrid, the character he plays, is 8 feet, 6 inches tall.

When Coltrane asked J.K. Rowling, author of the "Harry Potter" books, why she didn't make Hagrid a full 9 feet tall, she responded that she thought 8 feet, 6 inches was a more interesting height. Coltrane was made to look that tall in the movie through a variety of costuming and special effects tricks. In addition, in long shots, Hagrid was sometimes played by British rugby star Martin Bayfield, who is 6 feet,10 inches tall. Bayfield wore an automated mask as part of his Hagrid costume.
