    • Robbie Coltrane: (About his beard on Harry Potter)It's hell with that big beard and stuff. That's the one bit I don't like. Either you take out at lunch or you don't eat. So I opted not to eat, 'cause having to put it on twice is horrific.

    • Robbie Coltrane: Believe me, my children have more stamina than a power station
