Alan Rickman Finishes "Deathly Hallows" Filming

Rickman Interviews

Thanks to Snitch Seeker we can tell you about a recent interview with Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) in which it is confirmed that Rickman has completed filming for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." The International Herald Tribune interviewed actor and director Alan Rickman about bringing Creditors to New York City's Brooklyn Academy of Music after a two year break since the play's original London run. Rickman's role in the Harry Potter films is mentioned briefly:

Mr. Rickman, who is known mostly as an actor despite several acclaimed turns as a film and theatre director, was less eager to discuss his own career. Not that it is bereft of interesting developments. The day before, for example, Mr. Rickman, 64, had just finished filming the final "Harry Potter" movie. His portrayal of the slithery and surprising Severus Snape has brought him fame as never before, making him into one of the world's most celebrated movie villains, a thrilling antihero to the Potter-mad masses. But in his own mind Mr. Rickman had merely jumped form one intense experience to another, and he was thoroughly focused on "Creditors."
Snitch Seeker has scans of the full interview in their galleries, including a new photo of Rickman directing Creditors. The play opens on the 16th of April at the Brooklyn Academy of Music; as we previously told you, Rickman will take part in a pre-performance Artist Talk at BAM's Harvey Theatre on the 27th of April at 6pm. Tickets to the 45 minute Artist Talk cost $10 and can be purchased at this link.

Many thanks again to Snitch Seeker for the heads up!

This makes me cry! I can’t believe it’s coming to an end! All the major characters are going to slowly slip away until they’re all done! I wonder what the very last scene that is every shot will be and who will be in it…

It is so hard to believe that his part is finished. I hope that means they left Snape’s death scene in the movie. Only he could do the scene justice.

I’m with all of you! Wahhhhhhh!!!! :( I can’t believe it either, tears rolling down my eyes. I wish we would have known he was just about to finish, just wham! he finished! He needs to realize what history he has made, and became a part of. Maybe later he will see what effect this story, characters, him! has made on all of us! For the better! Thank You Alan! You did brilliant! sob ‘the bravest man I ever knew’. Dumbledore’s Army salutes you! XO
