A treat has arrived this morning: the first deleted scene from the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince film as made its way online and can be watched right here, as well as in our Video Galleries here.  The simply chilling sequence, released by WB Italy, features a breathtaking performance by actor Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) as darkness descends upon the castle.  This deleted scene is slated to be among many special extras found on the upcoming Half-Blood Prince DVD, set to be released stateside on December 8.

Update:  Additionally, WBItaly released two other short clips from a number of the extras on the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD, including actress Emma Watson receiving a Dark Mark (Gallery video here) and one of actor Rupert Grint discussing the development of his character, Ron Weasley (Gallery video here).

Absolutely amazing. Snape rulez. Very, very pity that it was cut out from the movie. Very emotion moment. The best deleted HP scene. Ever!

Wow! I’m glad to know where that music belongs in the film. It’s one of my favorites from the sound track. And really, couldn’t they have just left that whole sequence in the movie? It was a minute and a half and all we saw was McGonagall telling them to get to their houses, Snape facing the window (with no explanation of what that was) and Draco’s getting out of bed. It’s so much better with all of it there, and with the haunting choir in the background. Another bit of awesome scoring from Hooper.

Got chills watching the clip… the music is sooo perfect, and Snape’s anguish is palpable. Love’d it!

What a fantastic scene! Oh wow. Feeling rather speechless here, in the face of the awesomeness that is Alan Rickman.

Too bad the YouTube video is blocked, it’s labelled as Private so I wasn’t able to view it. But thank goodness the video was available in Leaky Video Gallery.

“actress Emma Watson receiving a Dark Mark” – when I first read that I thought, ‘huh! is there some strange, twisted new subplot that was excised?’ lol! But then I clicked the link and realised it was just her with the make-up lady.
