Guess Who Knew The End Of Harry Potter Before Any Of Us?

| Filed under: Harry Potter


That sneaky rascal Alan Rickman, that's who.

The story goes that before Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows was even released, author J.K Rowling pulled Alan aside to tell him how it all would end for Severus Snape. For quite some time, he was the only other person other than Rowling that understood where his character would end up and as series producer David Heyman, it came in handy when making some of the earlier films.

He explains:

"It was quite amusing, too, because there were times when a director would tell Alan what to do in a scene and he would say something like, 'No I can't do that - I know what is going to happen and you don't' He had a real understanding of the character and now looking back, you can see there was always more going on there — a look, an expression, a sentiment — that hint at what is to come … the shadow that he casts in these films is a huge one and the emotion he conveys is immeasurable."

We hear that!

Look, we know there have been a lot of good films this year, but if someone ever needed an Oscar nod for a role, it would be Alan Rickman for this one. Ten years he grew that character from someone loathsome to someone heartwarming. You can't just ignore dedication like that!

Here's hoping for you Alan.

    Who gives a shit.

  2. 2

    I'm not exactly sure heartwarming is the adjective I'd use, more like heartbreaking. By the time you realized the depth and heroism of his character, the deep and abiding love he was capable of, he is dead.

  3. 3

    Not news, but if you rewatch, you'll catch all the little subtle nuances to the character that Rickman gives. He's stellar.

  4. 4

    Alan Rickman is one of the worlds best actors! Love him! He's delicious!

  5. 5

    Professor Snape is the best fictional character I've seen. The observant knows immediately there's unseen, harbored facets, and RIckman skillfully lets little things slip as the films progress. Quite easy to entertain fantasies with, that one.

    that's really old news

    Haha this is really really old news for HP fans, but I really hope Alan Rickman gets an Oscar for it, he was brilliant in the last one, especially the scene after Lily died.
