Most people know him as the gruff but lovable character Rubeus Hagrid from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, but actor Robbie Coltrane has bigger problems these days than a noseless villain and a forest full of overgrown spiders.
As the Independent reports, Coltrane has been suffering from steadily worsening osteoarthritis, and the pain has become so bad that the 68-year-old now spends most of his time confined to a wheelchair.
Coltrane appeared at Universal Studios in Orlando last week to see the launch of Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike ride, and it was the first time he was seen publicly seated in a wheelchair because of the chronic pain the disease has been causing him.
Even so, Coltrane being known most prominently for his role as Hagrid, the half-giant who looks out for titular character Harry and his friends and always fighting on the side of good, fans were thrilled to see him at the event.
Despite the pain, Metro UK reports that Coltrane was in "good spirits" as he watched on at the launch. While there, he also addressed his current condition, explaining what doctors are planning on doing for him to relieve the horrendous amount of pain he is clearly living with day in and day out.
