Highland Newsopens in new window reports:

Roly-poly Scots actor Robbie Coltraneopens in new window 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.
