Got enough Hagrids to go around?

Highland News reports:
Roly-poly Scots actor Robbie Coltrane could have been forgiven for being beside himself yesterday as Hagrid in the latest Harry Potter blockbuster. For not one, or even two – but three Robbie lookalikes were drafted in on location for the filming of the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban blockbuster in Glencoe.
The three well-fed, and well-built doubles (or is that trebles?) included former England rugby international Martin Bayfield, who stands at 6ft 10ins. And two largish local men, who bear more than a passing resemblance to Robbie, have also identified with the role of Hagrid.
Thanks to Geri for this tip.
