So, as an English thespian, the star feels it's only fair that he help some of them out, saying:

"I get letters from people trying to go to drama school and needing to pay their rent. And so that's something I occasionally do. It's impossibly expensive to live in London."

And back when he was an up-and-comer, he had his sights set pretty high regarding roles he wanted to land. The red-headed celeb explained he REALLY wanted to be in a Harry Potter movie, venting to ITV:

A social media follower asked:

"Why did you pick Snape to name Harry's kid after? I'm genuinely curious as he was nothing but abusive towards everyone."
