  'Hagrid' actor talks about Harry Potter
Updated 07 October 2001, 14.28
Harry Potter film cast
The actor who plays Hagrid in the Harry Potter film has told how he hated wearing make-up.

Robbie Coltrane had to have glue pasted all over his face every day during filming so Hagrid's big black beard could be stuck on.

His character Hagrid is the giant who is the gamekeeper at Harry's school, Hogwarts.

Fun

He said: "It's the thing I really hate about filming. Make-up. Glue."

He also admitted he was a big fan of the actor Richard Harris, who plays Professor Dumbledore in the film.
