I’m deeply saddened to hear this news today. For me, growing up with Harry Potter meant that this was what I knew Alan Rickman for.
I couldn’t have disliked Snape more in the first few novels. But, by Deathly Hallows, I felt so guilty. I never knew Snape could be like that. I know it is down to Rowling’s writing, but it took a talented actor to play that part, to transfer the words to the screen.
So thank you Alan, for being a huge part of my childhood and many others in this world too.
No one could have played Professor Snape better than you.
Big love x
