One lovely, funny actor of distinction! I knew he was 6ft1 from an episode of 'Cracker', a deadly serious, disturbing series which he brought comedy to and gave his character 'Cracker' the likeability factor in a way only he knows how. I loved his characters in 'Blackadder III' and 'Blackadder's Christmas Carol' as well. If I am honest, I thought he was at least an inch or two taller. His large stature certainly didn't make him look shorter to me, as is so often the case!

ye robbie coltrane looks 6'1 alright but hes also wearing high looking shoes too so it makes sense if he could be 6 ft without shoes and the extra inch and a half with shoes,

I just watched philosophers stone and was wondering how tall he is in real life.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Sep/15
Those are some big ass shoes yet he still struggles to look 2in taller than Fiennes.

Rob can you squeeze in Mona Lisa? Looks huge next to Bob Hoskins!
nicole said on 3/Jan/15
about 6 foot
mike said on 26/Sep/14
Probably heading to 5ft 11.5 now but definitely legit 185 peak can look shorter because of his weight.
Halb said on 8/Jan/14
Rob didn't look only two inches shorter than Richard E Grant in the penultimate episode of Frasier.

6'0/6'1?! Oh my god I'm taller than hagrid! Lol, Wow I know he wasn't a giant in real life but I though he was a 6'5/6'4 guy atleast. Looks can be decieving!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/13
If he was 6ft1/185cm in Goldeneye and The World is Not Enough,
Brosnan was 188-189cm!

Robbie Coltrane is one of my fav`s from the Happy Potter series..And yes, i thought the gental giant was boarderlining at least 6`4 but he`s only 6 feet1 what camaras can do..
Lalaaaa said on 28/Feb/13
I thought he was huge but not really wow
Arch Stanton said on 19/Dec/12
He looks 1-1.5 inches shorter than Brosnan in World is Not Enough. Looks 6ft maybe 184 range. If he was 6'1" in 1999 Brosnan is an easy legit 6'2".
Arch Stanton said on 30/Nov/12
Nowhere near as tall as I'd thought.

Even Craig Ferguson is a questionable 188cm. He looks struggling to reach a flat 6' nowadays.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Nov/12
Yeah, I mean he looks a really big guy, I'd have guessed 6 ft 2 and near 350 pounds at heaviest. I believe he's lost quite a lot of weight since the 90s but still looks 300 odd.

He does seem so much taller than what he is in real life, amazing what they can do in the movie industry. i must say it must b soooo hard walking in those shoes they get him to wear :).
rubik said on 9/Nov/12
I am a tad under 6 ft.
Coltrane was my height, with johnny Depp at 5ft 10in up to my eyebrows
Check it out me with Depp, and Depp with Coltrane from "From Hell" he is defiantly 6.0 ft

When I saw him he seemed well over 6 foot

Okay I knew that Hagrid's height was enhanced by playing with the cameras...heck look how small they made John Rhys Davies (the Dwarf in Lord Of The Rings series) he's naturally 6'1" tall as well....
EK said on 5/Feb/12
In Chamber of Secrets, 6' 10" Martin Bayfield was used in longer shots to emphasize Hagrid's height. Just thought I'd share that. :]
Shaun said on 28/Jan/12
Yeah I'd have guessed he was a little over 6'. He can seem bigger because of his girth of course.
abeera said on 25/Dec/11
great actor i must say...i thought he'll be really tall but i'm shocked a bit..nice job robbie :P
Torey said on 24/Dec/11
Okay, listen people. He's not actually a half-giant, you know. So he's not going to be 7 feet tall, or anything like that. In fact, the only person I do know of that is naturally that tall is Shaquille O'Neal. The actually give Robbie built-up shoes to walk in, so that makes him LOOK taller. And I know Em already said that, but I've known that for awhile. That's what happens when you get bored, and you have computer. Lol.
em said on 22/Dec/11
just been to HP exhibition - he stands on built-up shoes, he's costume was extremely tall and his shoes used in the movie are about 10-15 cm at the front
abhinav said on 20/Dec/11

lovehpandhatetwillight said on 12/Oct/11
wowwwwwwww..... only 6'1? he seems soooo soooo SOOOOOOO much taller...still,great acting :D
Read,please said on 24/Aug/11
Robbie Coltrane provides the voice and face for Hagrid. Another actor stands in place for him in wide shots. In Hagrids hut they have him stand in a much smaller version, with tiny furniture and other things. Then they have the trio stand in a giant size version. Also: They don't use a lot of special effects in HP. Chris Columbus (the first director) preferred to build and use physical things rather than the computer generated.

platform shoes

how can he be 6'1 when hes like 10 ft tall in harry potter
no way said on 10/Jul/11
this guy is like 5'9" 5'10" tops, in goldeneye 007 he is so short compared to 6'1" bond in the game and all of their heights are correct inside, 6'1" claim thanks harry
Matt said on 1/Jul/11
Dude's as big as a house
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/May/11
I was very aware of the special effects in the Harry Potter movies that made Robbie Coltrane appear mammoth like and that in reality he wasn't that gigantic, but I never would have guessed him as being low as 6"1. I was assuming that in person he'd be 6"4 and up
EW said on 30/Jan/11
He seems WAY taller as Hagrid than he actually is
Anonymous said on 30/Dec/10
Hugh Laurie has 2-3 inches, perhaps 2 and a half on him in Blackadder. Make of that what you will.
shelma White said on 13/Nov/10
My brother is 6'7'. I figured you were much, much taller.
I am glad you are 6'1. it makes it a lot easier to buy close! ;-)
carla said on 15/Oct/07
So how do they make him taller on screen? I am hopeless at these things.
John. said on 25/May/07
Well i met robbie coltrane and im 5"2 and he is not that much bigger than me, and i think he's around 5"8

LOL OK then. ;-)

[Editor Rob: he's probably never standing to his height with his sheer girth, very likely he's lost height.]
lifts said on 11/May/07
dont u think he uses lifts to make himself that 8 foot thing?
RJ said on 18/Dec/06
Nearly bumped into him in a Soho street some years ago and he was definitely a couple of inches taller than me, which makes 6'1" about right.
Anonymous said on 9/Sep/06
Melissa, are you sure you met the right Robbie Coltrane? He must 6ft or a little over.
