Hagrid Hospitalized! Harry Potter Actor Robbie Coltrane Taken to Orlando Hospital After Falling Ill on a Flight

Poor Hagrid!

Robbie Coltrane, the actor who played the character of Rubeus Hagrid in the Harry Potter films, was hospitalized Thursday after he got sick on a flight from London to Orlando. "Robbie was taken ill on the flight and taken to hospital to rest and recuperate and was kept in overnight."

Despite some reports that the Glasgow resident was drinking heavily at a London airport before getting ill, Coltrane's rep insists alcohol wasn't to blame for his health scare.

The rep added, "I do however dispute the claims that he was drinking in a London lounge. He was flying down from Glasgow to Gatwick [Airport] to get a connecting flight to Orlando. His journey was delayed by bad weather conditions in Glasgow where he lives and he was being rushed from one terminal to another to get the flight which departed at 11:45. He was certainly not drinking in a lounge."

There's still no word on what the cause was for Coltrane's illness.

Feel better, Hagrid!
