The wizarding world has been in mourning since the news of the death of Robbie Coltrane, which occurred on Friday, October 14, in a hospital in Larbert, Scotland. It was his agent who announced the news, without specifying the causes of the actor’s death, but the British media had mentioned several serious health problems linked to his osteoarthritis. This weekend, the Mirror announces that it has had access to the death certificate of the star of “Harry Potter “, and reveals six causes explaining his death. The official documents, filled out by his ex-wife Rhona Gemmell, mention multiple organ failure, obesity, diabetes, sepsis, lower respiratory tract infection, but also cardiac arrest. The death certificate also mentions his real name, Anthony Robert McMillan. As the Mirror recalls, the actor adopted the stage name Coltrane at the start of his career, in tribute to saxophonist John Coltrane.
