Robbie is the son of Jean Ross and Ian Baxter McMillan, who served as a police surgeon, but was also a general practitioner. Robbie has an older sister Anne and younger sister Jane.

He went to Glenalmond College, an independent school located in Perthshire, and was nearly expelled because of some indecent behavior. Nevertheless, he matriculated and then attended the Glasgow School of Art; while there he was mocked by other students due to his accent which sounded like Prince Charles, and earned the nickname “Lord Fauntleroy”. He then enrolled at the Moray House College of Education.
His career began in the late 1970s, as he assumed the moniker Robbie Coltrane as a tribiute to jazz saxophonist John Coltrane, and appeared in an episode of the TV comedy drama series “Play For Today” (1979). Soon he made cameo appearances in films “Death Watch” (1980), and “Flash Gordon” the same year, then started making a name for himself by appearing in the comedies “A Kick Up the Eighties” (1981), “The Comic Strip Presents” (1982), and “Alfresco” (1983-1984). In 1984 he appeared in the film “Chinese Boxes” with Will Patton and Gottfried John, then featured in “Revolution” (1985) starring Al Pacino and Donald Sutherland, and to the end of the 1980s, he had parts in “Absolute Beginners” (1986) with David Bowie, “Eat The Rich” (1987), “Bert Rigby, You`re A Fool” (1989), “Let It Ride” (1989), starring Richard Dreyfuss and “Henry V”, also in 1989. His net worth was rising steadily.

With the beginning of the 1990s, his name became more known in the acting world, and he got lead parts in films “Perfectly Normal” (1990), “The Pop Must Diet” (1991), “The Adventures Of Huck Finn” (1993). In 1993 he portrayed Dr. Eddie ‘Fitz’ Fitzgerald in the TV series “Cracker” (1993-1996), which was later made into a film in 2006, in which Robbie repeated his role, and in 1995 he portrayed Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky in the Bond film “Golden Eye”, starring Pierce Brosnan and Izabella Scorupco. He repeated the role in “The World Is Not Enough” four years later, which increased his net worth by a large margin.

Until the 1990s ended, Robbie also featured in “Buddy” (1997), “Montana” (1998), starring Kyra Sedgwick, Stanley Tucci and Robin Tunney, and also “Alice In Wonderland” (1999),

His next big role was as Sergeant Peter Godley in the horror thriller “From Hell” (2001) starring Johnny Depp, and the same year he was selected for the role of Rubeus Hagrid in the adventure fantasy franchise films “Harry Potter”. He has played Hagrid in all eight parts of the film, which added a substantial amount to his net worth, but also popularized his name throughout the world, as he received positive critiques for his role, as well the appreciation of fans.

In 2004 he played Mr. Hyde in “Van Helsing”, and the same year he was cast as Matsui in “Ocean`s Twelve”. Four years later he appeared as Curator in the film “The Brothers Bloom”, starring Rachel Weisz, Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo. In 2012 he portrayed Jaggers in the film “Great Expectations, and most recently he appeared as Paul Finchley in the TV Mini-Series “National Treasure” (2016), which also increased his net worth.

Thanks to his skills, Robbie has received several prestigious awards, including three BAFTA Awards in the category Best Actor for his work on the TV series “Cracker”. Furthermore, he received the Peter Sellers Award for Comedy for his contribution to the genre. Robbie has also received the Officer of the Order of the British Empire(OBE), for his contribution to drama.

Regarding his personal life, Robbie has been married to Rhona Gemmell since 1999; the couple has two children.
