Unfortunately, Hagrid’s actor Robbie Coltrane isn’t an actual giant. This means that shots of him towering above his co-stars were mainly accomplished by forced perspective, or green screen effects – but for some scenes, such as crowd shots, they simply found the tallest guy they could, put him in a giant suit, and shoved a dead-eyed animatronic puppet head on top..
With the puppet head removed, Hagrid transforms into David Byrne at a Renaissance Faire.
And speaking of Talking Heads … Now that the series has wrapped, Hagrid’s disembodied, chattering cranium is on display at the Harry Potter studio tour, primed to traumatize a new generation of children.
