J.K. Rowling Reveals The ONE Secret Piece Of Information She Told Alan Rickman About Playing Snape In Harry Potter!
Alan Rickman's death shocked a lot of people, whether they were personal friends of the British actor or admirers of his work.
One of the biggest fan bases affected by the 69-year-old's passing were Harry Potter fans as Rickman played the fan favorite character Severus Snape.
After Alan finished his filming on the magical franchise, he revealed that author J.K. Rowling shared "one tiny, little, left of field piece of information" that apparently helped him realize there was more to his character than anyone thought.
This was important for the actor to know as only four books had been written at the time.
Since the Die Hard actor's passing, HP fans have book looking for more information on their favorite Hogwarts professor and one fan took to Twitter and asked Rowling about the "piece of information" that she shared with Alan.
Luckily for us, J.K. replied to the tweet saying:
What sad information.
According to a source close to the late Alan Rickman, the actor suffered from pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest forms of the disease.
The insider claims Rickman learned of his tragic diagnosis after suffering from a stroke back in August. Prior to the assessment, the actor had enjoyed a June trip to New York City for the premiere of A Little Chaos and spent time celebrating the accomplishment in a popular bar.
While everyone now knows A.R. passed from cancer, only a few friends up to this point knew his specific diagnosis. It was only in December that the 69-year-old started to let more people know about his unfortunate fate.

However, just because the Brit is gone, doesn't mean we've seen the last of him! The prolific Harry Potter star still has two more movies that he made that have yet to be released — Eye in the Sky and Alice Through the Looking Glass!

It's been reported that TV star Dan Haggerty, famous for playing the iconic bearded Grizzly Adams in the ‘70s, died Friday morning at the age of 74, after a months-long battle with cancer.
Haggerty starred in the 1977 series The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, which centered around a friendly mountain man and his wildlife friends.
The TV star also had spots on shows like CHiPs and Charlie's Angels and starred in the cult B-movie Elves.
According to sources close to the Haggerty's family, doctors discovered the cancer after he had surgery for back pain. He was getting treatment at the hospital until recently, when doctors told his family to come visit over the past few days before he passed.
Our hearts go out to Haggerty's loved ones at this tragic time.

As we reported, Emma Watson mourned the loss of her Harry Potter co-star Alan Rickman by posting a photo of him on Twitter with his quote, "There is nothing wrong with a man being a feminist, I think it is to our mutual advantage."
Unfortunately, many felt the 25-year-old's post was taking advantage of Rickman's death by forwarding her agenda!

On Thursday, many celebrities took to Twitter to say their goodbyes to the incredibly talented actor Alan Rickman following the announcement of his untimely passing. As we previously reported, the English artist just lost his battle to cancer at 69-years-old.
However, one A-lister is struggling with the news of Rickman's unfortunate death — Emma Thompson. Tragic!
