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!

I agree with hp931 that Snape is not a villain. Good grief JKR’s characters are way more complex than the good guys and the bad guys. And, Snape is one of the good guys anyhows, like he’s been on DDs side and gives his life for the greater good.

But yeah it is so sad that Alan is done filming. As much as I’m trying to pretend it is not happening, it feels that The End Of All Things is slowly getting nearer and, more real, too. We now know that no more Snape scenes will ever be filmed sigh

This must mean they’ve finished filming the prince’s tale. It’s what I’m most looking forward to see! I hope they keep most of what’s in the book. It’ll be very sad when there’s no more movies to look forward to, but I’m glad there’s still two more.

And he’s not a villain at all. Maybe an anti-hero, but not a villain!

I’d say Alan Rickman was one of the most talented actors working on the Harry Potter set and really portrayed his part almost exactly how I imagined Snape to be! I cannot wait to watch The Prince’s Tale unfold and his scene with Dumbledore where he breaks down and begs him to save Lily, I think it has the potential to be one of the most touching scenes in the entire series of films. Severus Snape was an incredible character you Alan Rickman played him in an incredible way, for that I greatly thank him.

It is so sad to think this is the last of Rickman’s contribution to the Potter Universe. I hope both films are brilliant.

Snape R.I.P.
