Rhona Gemmell is a sculptor and a pilates instructor, mainly famous as an ex-spouse of actor and comedian Robbie Coltrane.

Her marriage to Coltrane only lasted for four years

Gemmell was an 18-year-old student when she first met Coltrane on Christmas Eve in 1988

They dated for years before getting married in 1999, but their marriage was short-lived as they divorced four years later in 2003

It was the toughest year for Coltrane as he was completely heart-broke with the split, and at the same time, Coltrane started battling with osteoarthritis, which caused him constant pain. 

He said in an interview that he had an exploratory operation and discovered that he had no cartilage left in one of his knees. 

It's completely disintegrated, he said at the time.

There was a rumor of their reconciliation in 2008, but Coltrane later moved on with his girlfriend, whose name he never mentioned.

Mother of two 

Gemmell is the mother of two grown-up children whom she shared with her late ex-husband. 

Their kids, son Spencer and daughter Alice were born before their marriage. Their eldest son Spencer was born in 1992, while their daughter Alice was born in 1998.

Death of Coltrane 

Coltrane sadly passed away after a long-term illness that resulted in multiple organ failures. 

As per the death certificate obtained by various U.K. outlets, he suffered from sepsis, lower respiratory tract infection, and heart block. 

He took his last breath at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert, Scotland, on the 22nd of October, 2022. He was 72.

His daughter Alice paid an emotional tribute sharing a cute picture of them together with a black heart emoji where Alice is seen planting a kiss on his head.

Similarly, Daniel Radcliffe remembered the late Coltrane while appearing on Andy Cohen's show, where he said Coltrane was an amazing person who always kept entertained with his funny jokes. 

There was one period in their third film where they were getting constant horizontal rain. 

They were supposed to be there for three weeks, but due to the rain, it ended up to six weeks, and they used to sit around in Hagrid's hut where they used to listen to his jokes, he recalled.

Coltrane, in his last interview, reflected on his time as Hagrid in the Harry Potter film series

Coltrane left an indelible remark justifying his character as half-giant Hagrid in the Harry Potter film series, the character that will forever remain in the heart of people. 

In his last interview, Coltrane reflected on his time as Hagrid, and his character will be forever made alive. It’s an end of an era. Ten years of my life. 

My children have grown off during it, of course, he said with eyes full of tears. 

The legacy of the movie is that his children’s generation will show them to their children so it can be watched in 50 years' time easily. 

He will be not there sadly, but Hagrid will, he added.

More about Coltrane

Coltrane was born Anthony Robert McMillan. He adopted the stage name after he moved to acting in his early twenties. 

He took the stage name Coltrane paying tribute to jazz saxophonist John Coltrane.

Coltrane was a son of a doctor and a teacher. 

During an interview with Michael Parkinson, while talking about his middle-class upbringing, he said he must have been a terrible disappointment to his parents when he said he wanted to be an artist at the time.

He started his career as a stand-up comedian in his early 20s. 

After he got fed up with doing sketches, he wanted to do something bigger, and that’s when he started to pick up acting. 

He then suddenly hit the screen without any training.

During an interview with Guardian, he said if he walks into a room of people he doesn’t know, he is incredibly shy, but when he walks onto a film set, he knows where he should be and can do what he is meant to be doing.

Net Worth 

Her exact net worth is yet to be estimated. As of now, we have the net worth of her ex-husband, the late Robbie Coltrane

Coltrane, at the time of his death, had $4 million.


  1. She was born in 1980. She is currently 42 years old.
