JK Rowling Posts Twitter Tribute to Alan Rickman

Alan Rickman, the actor that portrayed Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films, passed away four years ago. His death has deeply impacted the fans and, of course, the creator of his most beloved character, JK Rowling. Even though Rowling, who wrote the seven-book series, didn’t write the script for the movies… she was involved in the making of them and like all of us, she holds a special place for Rickman in her heart.

A fan of the films went on Twitter to thank Rowling for writing Snape’s character and for convincing Rickman to play the role. Rowling then responded back by discussing how Snape plays a role in the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play, and how when she first saw the character on stage it almost brought tears to her eyes because for a moment she thought Rickman would be turning around (since Snape starts off on stage with his back to the audience).

Snape is definitely the undercover hero of the Harry Potter series. The way he played double agent for Dumbledore to keep track of Voldermort was heroic and wise. I remember reading that for the first time and being in complete shock. Unfortunately, the movie doesn’t do the reveal justice, at least in my opinion, but true fans know what that final moment between Harry and Snape means. However, Alan Rickman did a phenomenal job portraying Snape and he will forever live in the hearts of fans all over the world. Whenever I hear always, I will always think of Snape.
