I am so sad that to hear the news that Alan Rickman has passed away. Despite being such a huge Harry Potter fan I didn’t expect to feel such a huge wave of emotion upon hearing about his death.
I know Alan Rickman was more than just Snape. But the Harry Potter series has been a great part of both my childhood and adult life.
Thinking back to all the films and books I can’t imagine anyone else portraying Snape, it was like J.K. Rowling wrote the character with him in mind.
Thank you Alan Rickman, for immortalising Snape. Thank you for your contibution to the arts, and thank you for being a part of my Harry Potter filled childhood.
Here are some of my favourite Snape moments:
