Coltrane was given the Peter Sellers Award for Comedy by the Evening Standard British Film Award in 1990. He received a British Academy Scotland Awards honor for his “exceptional contribution” to film in 2011.

Coltrane then rose to fame on a national scale by playing Dr. Eddie “Fitz” Fitzgerald, a criminal psychologist, in the ITV television series Cracker (1993–2006), for which he won three consecutive British Academy Television Awards for Best Actor (1994 to 1996).

When Did Robbie and Rhona Split?
Robbie and Rhona got married on December 11, 1999, after dating for several years.
However, the couple’s relationship had already ended by April 14, 2003.
Robbie’s publicist stated at the time to the Daily Mail: “It’s true that they’ve split up, but it was mutual and there are no hard feelings.
“Sadness ensues since they are now physically separated. Robbie is very absent due to his job, and the age gap could also be a factor.”
Do Robbie and Rhona Have Children?
The couple’s first child, a son named Spencer, was born in 1992, just a year before they announced their separation.
When their daughter Alice was born in 1998, they became parents for the second time.
Belinda Wright, the representative for the Urban Myths star, confirmed his passing on October 14, 2022.
Indeed, as she affirmed, “Robbie was a one-of-a-kind performer; he and Sir Michael Gambon are the only two people to ever win Best Actor Baftas in consecutive years for their roles as Fitz in the Granada TV series Cracker (1994, 1995, and 1996).
For the next few decades, “he will undoubtedly be best remembered as Hagrid in the Harry Potter films,” a part that gave joy to children and adults around the world and resulted in a steady flood of fan mail every week for more than two decades.
