Alan Rickman Finishes "Deathly Hallows" Filming

Rickman Interviews

Thanks to Snitch Seeker we can tell you about a recent interview with Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) in which it is confirmed that Rickman has completed filming for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." The International Herald Tribune interviewed actor and director Alan Rickman about bringing Creditors to New York City's Brooklyn Academy of Music after a two year break since the play's original London run. Rickman's role in the Harry Potter films is mentioned briefly:

Mr. Rickman, who is known mostly as an actor despite several acclaimed turns as a film and theatre director, was less eager to discuss his own career. Not that it is bereft of interesting developments. The day before, for example, Mr. Rickman, 64, had just finished filming the final "Harry Potter" movie. His portrayal of the slithery and surprising Severus Snape has brought him fame as never before, making him into one of the world's most celebrated movie villains, a thrilling antihero to the Potter-mad masses. But in his own mind Mr. Rickman had merely jumped form one intense experience to another, and he was thoroughly focused on "Creditors."
Snitch Seeker has scans of the full interview in their galleries, including a new photo of Rickman directing Creditors. The play opens on the 16th of April at the Brooklyn Academy of Music; as we previously told you, Rickman will take part in a pre-performance Artist Talk at BAM's Harvey Theatre on the 27th of April at 6pm. Tickets to the 45 minute Artist Talk cost $10 and can be purchased at this link.

Many thanks again to Snitch Seeker for the heads up!

I agree with Caracticus about the Oscars. Once DH2 is out, it will be time for the Academy to start paying a little recognition to the quality of acting that has graced this series as well as the dedication and commitment that all of the actors put forth to ensure continuity in what will undoubtedly be a lasting legacy in the phenomenon that is HP.

And… breathe. :)

Oh God.

I’m shaking. I can’t bring myself to get accustomed to the fact that it’s coming to an end, an end which is very, very close. Aww.

Alan Rickman was exactly what I wanted Professor Snape to be like in the movies. Frm the first scenes to the last, Rickman played Snape in a masterful way.

:( I wasn’t expecting to see this, how sad. I imagine for me it’s going to be the hardest part to watch seeing Snape’s demise. But on a brighter note “Snow Cake” and “Something The Lord Made” were two excellent movies that I probably would not have seen had it not been for Alan’s portrayal as Snape.

Wow, I can’t believe he’s done. A little over a year and the final movie will be out. Thanks Rickman for the beautiful portrayal of Snape.
