Alan Rickman, a brilliant actor and a wonderful human being, passed away on 14th January. We always knew that the Defense Against the Darks Arts position was cursed, but we weren’t ready for this one! While Rickman has several incredible roles to his credit, there is one role that has stuck with us the most: Professor Severus Snape from Harry Potter.
Along with fellow Harry Potter fans, we raise our wands in memory of Alan Rickman and recollect some of the most memorable (and heartbreaking) Snape moments!
- When he asked us to turn to page 394
- All those times his students (read Gryffindors) got on his nerves
- When he had no idea (and sort of protecting Harry from Umbridge)
- That moment when he swore to protect Draco Malfoy from harm and help him carry out that dreadful deed Voldemort had ordered him to commit
- When he just wanted some silence
- When he made young Lily Evans (Potter) feel special
- And when he (sob sob) even after all this time, he…*weeps*
Our hearts beat as one, Mr. Rickman. Always.
