Robbie Coltrane
Born Anthony Robert McMillan in 1950, comic actor Robbie Coltrane was born in Rutherglen, Scotland, to a busy GP father, and graduated from Glasgow School of Art. During the late 1970s, he rose to prominence as an improvisational comedian on the nightclub circuit before moving into films when debuting in Death Watch (1980).

Despite a smattering of small films roles he became a recognisable figure in alternative comedy and was a frequent participant in The Comic Strip Presents productions and BBC2's tv comedy series The Young Ones and Blackadder.
A an early age, his father died from lung cancer when Robbie was still in his teens. Worse, in 1976, Robbie's younger sister, Jane, committed suicide while studying at York University. Like Robbie, she was bubbling over with life, but suffered from depression. It was Robbie who travelled down to collect her belongings. On the way home, wild with grief, he would smash up his train carriage.
