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!

Any chance the videos will be available here at TLC? When I clicked on the links, there were no videos that showed up, just the titles. :-(

OMG, I never thought I’d see the day when Alan Rickman talks about the HP series! This is so amazing, thanks for sharing. Did you notice: at the end of the third video it said “More to follow”. Can’t wait to see the rest!

It’s so nice to see Alan open up even a tiny bit about HP.

I would love to know what his reaction was when he first learned of his character’s ultimate destiny!

Alan Rickman is simply paragon. He’s classy, witty, and yet down-to-earth. He is the PERFECT Snape — which is funny, because Snape should actually be much younger. He’s definitely one of my top 3 actors in the HP films.

I’ll keep this brief. Alan Rickman deserves an Academy Award for playing Snape.

I could type up a really long chunk of text on how I feel about him and the character he plays, but to make it short; Alan Rickman is unbelievably amazing.

“Do you have any teasers for us, any secrets?”
“It’s the last one.”

That was funny. _
