Robbie Coltrane takes up role as a geek for new Kate Bush music video

Scottish Daily Record 28th April 2011: “SCOTS actor Robbie Coltrane plays one of his oddest roles yet as a computer-obsessed geek in a new Kate Bush video. The Harry Potter star takes the main role in the film for a lengthened version of the song Deeper Understanding, which was initially released in 1989. In the six-and-a-half-minute feature, directed by singer Kate, businessman Robbie inserts a disc, titled Voice Console – Whenever You Need A Friend, into his computer.

He becomes so besotted with his new computer-generated friend that it leads to the break-up of his family. And he becomes jealous when a younger man, played by Mighty Boosh star Noel Fielding, steals the disc.”
