Before They Were Stars: Robbie Coltrane in “Flash Gordon”

With the final saga in the Harry Potter saga finally opening in theaters today, Hagrid fans might want to catch a glimpse of what is undoubtedly the greatest performance in the career of Robbie Coltrane. In the 1980 version of Flash Gordon, Coltrane plays “Man at Airfield” and his entire seven-second role consists of handing Flash his luggage and closing an airplane door. For those of you keeping score at home, the role features four seconds of Mr. Coltrane’s arms and three seconds where he is actually on camera.
