Robbie Coltrane was taken to hospital after suffering from severe flu-like symptoms onboard a British Airways flight from London to Orlando.

On landing, the actor, 64, best known for his role as Rubeus Hagrid in the Harry Potter series, was rushed to a hospital close by.

According to TMZ, he was on his way to a Harry Potter convention with his co-star Michael Gambon (who plays Dumbledore) at the time.

Orlando is the home of Potter theme park the ‘Wizarding World of Harry Potter’, which opened its doors for the first time last year.

It is thought Coltrane, real name Anthony Robert McMillan, will be monitored and treated in hospital overnight.
