Actor Alan Rickman has given a new interview to SCI-FI Wire where he discusses his filming schedule in his role as Severus Snape for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In the interview he says he will be filming late in 2009, mentioning working with Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort) for those pivotal and dramatic scenes at the end of Deathly Hallows. Mr. Rickman said: “Well, because they have to get me and Ralph Fiennes together, it means
I don’t start shooting it until the end of next year, which means I get
room now in this coming year,” he said. “So it’s going to be long. I
was talking to Helena [Bonham Carter] yesterday. I think she starts in June, and she
goes on for a long time.”

Alan Rickman also spoke briefly about the decision to split the filming of the book into two films, noting “Well, it’ll be a big finish, won’t it?” Rickman said. “That’s true,
and appropriately. You can feel it now, the size of the undertaking.
Watching Daniel [Radcliffe], I saw a trailer for him being on Inside the Actor’s Studio, and you think, ‘Wait a minute, he’s 12! Oh. Perhaps he isn’t.”

Thanks Wendy and Martha!
