Robbie Coltrane was taken to hospital after falling ill on a flight on Thursday (January 29).

The actor had been travelling from London to Orlando to attend a special Harry Potter celebration event.

However, on arrival in the US the actor - who played Hagrid in the Potter movies - was taken to a local hospital, where he is now resting.

His agent has confirmed that he is "fine" and is expected to be discharged in the coming days.

Warner Bros commented: "Robbie took ill last night and is getting the rest he needs to feel better. We are sorry he cannot be with us this weekend and look forward to seeing him up and about soon."

Coltrane was due to join Michael Gambon, James Phelps and Evanna Lynch for the annual 'A Celebration of Harry Potter event' at Universal Resort Orlando this weekend.

The 64-year-old joined his fellow cast members at the launch of the expanded Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction in July last year.
