Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - FILM -

AFTER mak­ing a big impression at Hog­warts, Rob­bie Coltrane will star in the new film adap­ta­tion of Charles Dick­ens’s Great Ex­pec­ta­tions as or­phan Pip’s le­gal guardian Mr Jag­gers.

The Cracker star is to be re­united with Harry Pot­ter costars He­lena Bon­ham Carter and Ralph Fi­ennes in the film, which be­gins shoot­ing next month.

Pro­ducer El­iz­a­beth Karlsen said she knew Coltrane was the man to play the im­pos­ing Mr Jag­gers as soon as he walked into the ho­tel foyer where they were meet­ing to dis­cuss the role. She said: “The com­mand he had of the room was as­ton­ish­ing.”
