News of Coltrane’s death shocked the world, with many of his former co-stars coming forward to pay tribute.

Harry Potter lead Daniel Radcliffe told People in a statement that Coltrane “was one of the funniest people I’ve met and used to keep us laughing constantly as kids on the set.”

“I’ve especially fond memories of him keeping our spirits up on [2004’s Harry Potter and the] Prisoner of Azkaban, when we were all hiding from the torrential rain for hours in Hagrid’s hut and he was telling stories and cracking jokes to keep morale up,” he continued.
