Alan Rickman Talks Snape, Dan Radcliffe and Alan Rickman Talk Broadway

HP Cast

In anticipation of the release of the final Harry Potter DVD, which will begin to be sold in the US tomorrow, Warner Bros. France has a new interview with Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) where he discusses playing his infamous character. You can watch the video of the interview here or below.

Speaking of Mr. Rickman, he will be starring in "Seminar," a play due to open on November 20th on Broadway. This means that he and Daniel Radcliffe, who is currently starring in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," will be sharing the bright lights of Broadway until the end of this year:

Radcliffe found the production to be inspiring, Rickman said.  “He told me, ‘This makes me want to do a play, I have to do a play,’ ” he recalled in his dressing room before a recent rehearsal.  “And I told him, ‘Daniel, you have years ahead of you ….'  And he not only has the time but the talent to accomplish  much on the stage.”


Rickman says one reward of being in the movies made from J.K. Rowling’s seven-volume Harry Potter opus was the privilege of  “watching three kids turn into three adults, imperceptibly it seems, over 10 years. And now being able to sit in a café in New York with Daniel, talking about something loosely called ‘process.’ ”

that is why he was so convincing as snape, he studied him so well and did an awesome job and he also speaks about the trio with so much affection and admiration :)

I love this interview, which has actually been around since the time of the DH2 premieres. I think it may have come from an Irish TV programme. I would love to know who the interviewer is. She asks far more interesting questions than interviewers generally manage, and so gets Alan talking in an e-qual-ly interesting way.

Pity about the sound quality on that interview, the balance between the two speakers was completely lacking.

I love this interview! :) I don’t think I ever saw an interview with so many good questions like this one, usually questions are the same but not here. :D I love how he answers interesting and it gives you the opportunity to understand him more, he’s absolutely brilliant actor. :)
