UPDATE: On a related note, Mr. Rickman appeared last night after a screening at the Roger Ebert film festival in Champaign, Illinois, and was asked about his role as Professor Snape. In response to a question relating to another film called "Perfume", the News-Gazette has the following from a new interview with Alan Rickman:

Rickman, who was a graphic artist before he went into acting, also said he never expected to have a film career. "I never thought it would be part of my life. It was a bit of a shock." He is probably now best known to moviegoers, particularly younger ones, as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter movies. A young woman in the audience asked Rickman what Professor Snape would have thought of Grenouille's "miracle potion."

"Who knows what Professor Snape thinks about anything," he replied.
