Robbie Coltrane, who passed away at the age of 72 years on October 14, 2022, is widely popular as Rubeus Hagrid from the Harry Potter film series

By bringing the compassionate and fiery character of half-giant and half-human who is the gamekeeper of Hogwarts to life with his genius acting, Coltrane charmed the audiences

As most of the actors who played the legendary characters from JK Rowling’s Harry Potter books onscreen are still mostly recognized by their onscreen names, Hagrid was also one of them

After the news of his death, Harry Potter fans took to social media to pay tribute to the actor who was also known for his role of Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky

Some of the iconic traits of Hagrid that have deeply touched us over the ages are-

Loving nature

Hagrid’s gigantic form was often a cause of fear for many but he has the ability to love his dear ones wholeheartedly due to which Harry, Ron and Hermione adored him like a dear friend

Superbly compassionate

No matter how dangerous the creatures were in Harry Potter’s magical wizarding world, Hagrid has an unshakeable capability to love every animal unconditionally even if it landed him in deep trouble later

Utmost loyalty

Hagrid’s best quality was that he had always been loyal to Dumbledore forever even if the latter was sometimes labelled as an untrustworthy fellow in the wizarding world

Highly protective

The first film of Harry Potter franchise Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone shows how Hagrid protected Harry from accusations and criticisms from the Dursleys like a parent

Deeply emotional

Hagrid’s character taught us that looks doesn’t matter and even the strongest person can have the most tender heart who can deeply feel every sort of emotion of others
