Revealed: Robbie Coltrane’s Riverside bloopers

leave a comment »

Last week came the news that actor Robbie Coltrane had donated one of his treasured cars to the Riverside Museum. Colrane’s Chrysler Jeep will take pride of place in the north window of the Zaha Hadid-designed museum, and will be one of the first objects that most visitors see.

Coltrane, who is a Trustee of the Riverside Museum Appeal, also starred in a series of bloopers, aided and abetted by Chewin’ the Fat and Still Game star Greg Hemphill, to help promote Riverside’s £5million appeal. In the cheeky YouTube vids, which you can watch below, Coltrane loses it with his producer; is humbled by a modern irritation; and, err, makes an embarrassing discovery about just how windy the Riverside site can be …

The Riverside Museum Appeal has now raised £4million, and in these last few months of the project it’s making a final push to reach its £5million target. Please help by donating online at www.riversideappeal.org or, to make a £5 donation, text “Riverside” to 70700. All donations will be permanently recognised in the new museum.
