Actor Alan Rickman (Professor Snape) has given a new interview to a local paper while up in Canada filming his new movie “Snow Cake“. While he does not talk about the upcoming Goblet of Fire film, Mr. Rickman does speaks briefly about the popularity of the Potter films, and his role as the Hogwarts Potions Master.

Rickman says he is not surprised at the success of the Harry Potter movies, in which he played Professor Snape. “Why would it not be a success, I mean, the books alone would mean everybody would go running to it.”

Rickman says his younger fans recognize him “only if I’m in a black wig and a long black coat, they don’t really know me otherwise. They kind of stare in some confusion but it’s great.”

“I love seeing their faces when they come on the set when they visit us,” said the 59-year-old actor who signed many autographs for children while he was in Wawa. “And it’s not just children, there’s a lot of adult devotees of Harry Potter.”

A modest Rickman added, “It’s not me, it’s the character they love and all that galaxy of people that JK Rowling had created. So we just kind of put on a costume and say the lines.”
