Rhona Gemmell is the former wife of the late Harry Potter actor Robbie Coltrane, 

Coltrane who was 72 years old at the time of his death had long faced the challenges of osteoarthritis, sharing candidly about the constant pain he endured while being confined to a wheelchair. 

Let's get to know more about Gemmell and her relationship with Coltrane.

Rhona Gemmell and Robbie Coltrane

Rhona Gemmell and Robbie Coltrane first met in December 1988, when Rhona was still a college student. Over the years, Rhona became a sculptor and pilates teacher, making her workplace in London.  

She has worked in well-known health studios such as Body Control Pilates and Otago Street Pilates, earning certifications in Body Control Master Matwork and Comprehensive Studio. 

Their relationship flourished, lived together and gave birth to two children.

Rhona Gemmell and Robbie Colantre were so happy together.

Spencer, their first child, was born in 1992, followed by the arrival of their daughter, Alice, in 1998.  

The couple decided to make their relationship official on December 11, 1999, by getting married. They settled into a farmhouse near Lach Lomond, Scotland, as they built their family. 

However, as time passed, the couple faced challenges, and by 2003, they made the difficult decision to separate and eventually divorced.  

Coltrane's publicist shared that the separation was amicable, citing Robbie's frequent work-related travel and suggesting that their age difference might have played a role in the decision to part ways.


Rhona Gemmell has two kids with her late husband Robbie Coltrane. 

They have a son Spencer McMillan and a daughter Alice McMillan.

Spencer McMillan

The only thing known about Spencer McMillan is that he was born in 1992. He has lived a very private life.

He is a student and a photographer.

Alice McMillan

Alice McMillan was born in 1998 and has been making waves in the entertainment industry, following in her father's footsteps as an actress. 

Represented by the management company Hamilton Hodell, as mentioned in her Instagram bio, Alice is at the early stages of her career but has already left a mark.  

Her debut came in a 2016 episode of the popular series Outlander. Stepping into leading roles, she starred in the 2019 movie The Souvenir, alongside the iconic actress Tilda Swinton. The film's success led to a sequel in 2021, where Alice reprised her role.

Alice's versatility is evident in her varied roles, including appearances in the mini-series Roadkill and the film The Hitman's Bodyguard, as per IMDb. Notably, she shared the screen with her father in an episode of the 2020 series Urban Myths, where Robbie portrayed the famed director Orson Welles. 

Despite her growing success, Alice maintains a low profile on social media, occasionally offering glimpses into her life but keeping family moments private. Interestingly, there's a notable absence of shared shots featuring her father Robbie or her brother, born in 1992. 

As Alice continues to carve her own path in the industry, it's clear that talent runs in the Coltrane family, and her contributions are sure to make a lasting impact, much like her father's portrayal of the beloved Hagrid in the Harry Potter legacy.

Net Worth

Rhona Gemmell has a net worth of $500,000 from her career as a Pilates coach and fitness trainer.

Her late husband Robbie Coltrane has a net worth of 4 million dollars at the time of his death.

Coltrane Kept Quite about His Girlfriend

Despite his openness regarding health issues, the actor remained tight-lipped about his romantic affairs. In 2003, Coltrane's marriage to sculptor Rhona Gemmell ended.

Only recently, he disclosed details about his current romantic relationship, a union that quietly endured for 12 years before entering the public discourse. 

Following the dissolution of his marriage to Rhona after four years, Coltrane retreated from the public eye, grappling with the emotional aftermath of his marital breakdown and the physical challenges posed by osteoarthritis. 

It wasn't until 2016 that Coltrane publicly addressed his health struggles, a subject he broached candidly while maintaining silence about the specifics of his divorce.

Fans wondered if Coltrane had a girlfriend, and in a 2020 interview with Radio Times, he confirmed he'd been dating someone for 12 years. He didn't reveal her name but joked about not wanting more babies, mentioning his two kids with Rhona. 

Following Coltrane's death, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe led the tributes.

Final Days of Coltrane Before Death

Coltrane's agent, Belinda Wright, announced his passing, praising him not only as a wonderful actor but also as a highly intelligent and brilliantly witty individual. Having been his proud agent for 40 years, she expressed her deep sense of loss. 

The Scottish actor and comedian received the Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) honor from the late Queen Elizabeth II in 2006 for his contributions to drama. His final on-screen appearance was in the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts television special. 

Robbie Colantre's most notable work as Hagrid in Harry Potter Movie Series.

Survived by his ex-wife Rhona Gemmell and their two children, Spencer and Alice, Coltrane's legacy extends beyond his impressive career in acting and comedy.

We've got the final picture of Coltrane, and it's a sweet one. He's chatting with another Harry Potter co-star. 

Coltrane was always tight with the young actors, calling them his "own kids."
