Robbie Coltrane died of six conditions, including organ failure.
The “Harry Potter” actor’s death certificate, revealed by the Daily Mirror on Sunday (23.10.22), also reveals that he suffered from diabetes and obesity.
Robbie, who died on October 14 at the age of 72, had been ill for years before his death and had previously spoken out about “constant pain”.
Robbie’s death certificate lists his birth name, Anthony Robert Macmillan, and the stage name Coltrane, which he adopted in the 1970s in honor of jazz saxophonist John Coltrane.
Robbie, whose death was registered by his ex-wife Lorna Gemmel, said he was in agony after the cartilage in his knee collapsed in 2020.
It was such intense pain that it left the “James Bond” actor wheelchair-bound, and he said he didn’t want it on his “worst enemy.”
He told the Daily Express in one of his final interviews for 2020:
“There was no cartilage in the knee. It was bone of bone.
Robbie, a former heavy drinker, battled until he lost seven stones in 2016, when doctors warned him that he could become “crapped” if he didn’t lose weight.
When he dropped five stones, he began to suffer “constant pain all day long” and after exploratory surgery, doctors discovered that “there was no cartilage left in one knee,” which he said was “completely broken.” It collapsed,” he added.
By 2020, the “Crackers” actor said he found some relief after undergoing joint surgery in America.
At the time, he added: Being able to sleep without pain after surgery changed my life. “
Robbie declined to appear at ComicCon at London’s Olympia in July, with organizers saying it was due to his “ongoing ill health.”
Robbie’s agent, Belinda Wright, announced his death as follows:
“Not only is he a great actor, but he’s forensically smart and resourceful, and after 40 years of being proud to be called his agent, I’ll miss him.”
She said the actor was married to his sister Annie Ray, his children Spencer and Alice, and their mother Lorna Gemmel, the sculptor Robbie, whom she married in 1999 and divorced in 2003.
