Snape Speaks: Video Interview with Alan Rickman on the Potions Master and Deathly Hallows

Well this is quite a holiday treat: Rare video interviews are now online with actor Alan Rickman on his role as Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter film series. Mr. Rickman, who has routinely refused (in most cases, not all, but most) to speak at length about the pivotal character he portrays in the films, answered several questions at the Hudson Union Society recently about Snape. Alan confirms he has already filmed some scenes with Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort) for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but has yet to film with Dan Radcliffe (Harry). Thanks to Vimeo user Katie we can now enjoy the following:

Video One (or here )Alan Rickman on the Harry Potter series ("Incredibly well crafted").

Video Two: (or at this link)Working with the different directors on the series.

Video Three: (Update also here in our galleries) Speaks about Deathly Hallows and noted has filmed scenes with Ralph Fiennes and just the crew, and says he will be back on set shortly to film with 300 children (possibly Snape as Headmaster ?)

Many thanks to Katie and to SS for emailing!

I look forward to seeing his closing act in the seventh and eighth films; I am positive that he will impress all moviegoers beyond comprehension with a poignant and majestic portrayal of the complex character named Snape.

I have ALWAYS enjoyed Alan in his various roles. He is the consumate villian, and has a terrific sense of humor. I’m very pleased that you managed to acquire these clips…
