WADOO!!NEWS: ‘Harry Potter’ Star Hagrid Rushed to Hospital After Flight
“Harry Potter” star Robbie Coltrane got off a plane Thursday and was immediately hospitalized after suffering severe flu-like symptoms during the flight …
A rep for Coltrane — who played Rubeus Hagrid — tells us the actor fell ill during a British Airways flight from London to Orlando.
We’re told paramedics met Coltrane at the gate, and took him to the hospital … where he’ll remain overnight for treatment.
Coltrane went to Orlando for a Harry Potter convention … and we’re told Michael Gambon — who played Dumbledore — was on the same flight.
Someone on Twitter claims Coltrane was drinking heavily in a London airport lounge before the flight. If it’s true, we don’t know yet if that contributed to his illness.
