    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

      Comedian turned critically acclaimed actor, from Cracker’s sarcastic, cerebral Fitz to the half-giant Hagrid in Harry Potter

            He was good in the Brosnan Bond films. Humorous. RIP big fella.

              No one could have been a finer Hagrid, you were wizard, Robbie....

                I don't see many movies. I don't care for most movies, as my imagination is not that good. Most are duds.

                I won radio station tickets years ago for the premier in d.c., along with a party at a bar for Nuns on the Run. I had more fun with two ladies there who I nick-named Choocho, and Cabose, than I did watching Robbie, with a very unfunny, and badly written movie. I honestly didn't think he would have made it this long, or had such a transformation, and lucrative career. I toast him now. Actors have less of a chance of succeeding than musicians. My condolences to his family, and fans.

                  Great actor in so many roles besides HP. One of my favorite funny ones was in Blackadder's Christmas Carol.

                    I was somewhat shocked to read that Coltrane was 72 years old, but as often happens with actors, we tend to remember them as we saw them from some film or TV show or another.

                    The first Harry Potter film was released over 20 years ago.

                      And in the 20th anniversary reunion special they did last year, Coltrane was looking pretty frail. :-(
