Aww, how sad!

Michael Gambon is probably best known to the wizarding world for his role as Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films (except the first two, in which the character was portrayed by the late Richard Harris).

But the multiple award-winning actor has been tearing up the boards in the theater for half a century in plays such as Betrayal, Endgame, and King Lear.

Unfortunately, it seems that Michael must now draw the curtain on his theater career.

The 74-year-old actor admitted his memory just isn't up to the task anymore:

Blimey! Feel better, Hagrid!

Harry Potter's Robbie Coltrane had to be immediately hospitalized after a flight from London to Orlando on Thursday.

To be clear, he was not flying on a motorcycle. This was an airplane we're talking about here, Muggles.

Apparently, the actor experienced severe flu-like symptoms during the flight! Oh no!

Robbie was met by paramedics at the gate when the plane landed, and they took him right to the hospital. It was not St. Mungo's.

Robbie was arriving in Orlando to attend a Harry Potter convention, and was even on the same flight as Michael Gambon.

However, someone on Twitter claims to have seen Robbie drinking heavily in a London airport lounge prior to getting onboard the plane.

Whether that's true or not, we wish a speedy recovery to Robbie!
