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 wish I could see him on scene, in theater! It would have been great! I’m sure he is even better on scene than in movies.
Snape is one of my all times favourite character!
And I agree with everybody… it’s so sad that the series come to its end… but we have to deal with this fact somehow(((

Alan Rickman portrayed my favorite Harry Potter character so well that I am deeply saddened to hear that he is done filming. He has had such an impact on my life, and I can’ thank him enough for being such an awesome Snape.

I can’t believe it! No more Alan Rickman! He is one of my all time FAVORITE actors! I am going to go up to my bedroom and lock myself up until the movie comes out. I am going to miss you Snape/Alan!

Just imagine how different Snape would have been if he had been sorted into Gryffindor. As Dumbledore said, Sometimes I think we sort too soon.
