Who is robbie coltrane dating
With Julie Walters as his loyal wife, Coltrane’s character is accused of historical offences.
This is an important occasion for the Scottish comedian, who is being lionised like never before: today, the ITV company Meridian has organised a press-conference, buffet lunch, and cinema viewing, no less, of Coltrane's current series Coltrane in a Cadillac, in which he is filmed driving across America. The show, energised by frequent bouts of rock music, is not quite a comedy, not quite a documentary. But it occurred to me, I didn't really have the time to do it, and I wouldn't have done it on my own because of my commitments with work. Look, she looks just like Harry Enfield there, doesn't she? Gorgeous.' We talk about Coltrane's huge range of hobbies.
'Yes,' he says, in a gruff Glasgow rasp, 'I've been under the bonnet.' He looks at his oily fingers. Right now, he's on a strict diet, and he's teetotal. Euan Kerr, his first friend at Glenalmond, says of the 13-year-old Mac Millan (in a posh Scottish accent, like an Etonian with differently fluted vowels): 'He was phenomenally keen on lorries - he used to pretend to be a lorry. When he was in charge of the junior dormitory, he used to rule it with a fairly good rod of iron.' Coltrane's schooldays sound as if they were intense, mildly prankish, and a trial to him, offset by a few glorious moments on stage, in revues, making people laugh.
He keeps tilting his head up and raising his eyebrows; when he does this, everyone laughs. He knew all the makes, where they went, everything about them. One contemporary describes him (another posh accent) as 'a bit weird.' Once, he stole the gowns from various prefects and hung them on the clock tower.
Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months.
Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Scottish network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actor of Robbie Coltrane's stature would be major news across networks.
