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 have enjoyed Alan Rickman as Professor Snape, whom captured my eye as not only perfect for the role of Professor Snape, but I have enjoyed so many of his films!!!! He is truly an OUTSTANDING ACTOR!!! There were times in the Books that I was upset with his treatment of Harry!!! but after now knowing the ending of it all, I realize that there was such bitterness between Harry’s father James and Snape from the beginning that I understood a lot of Snape’s feelings, Harry reminded Snape so much of James, even though Harry looked a lot like his father, I feel Harry had more compasion in him, of which no-doubt came from his Mother Lilly Potter. I was not happy at all about how Snape had to die in Deathly Hallows, but his picture was placed in the Head Masters office along with Albus Dumbledore and the other Head Masters of Hogwarts, and Harry did name his sons Albus Severus and James Sirius and of course his daughter after his Mother Lilly!!!! I was hoping all along that Harry would end up married to Ginny Weasley!!!!! and that Ron would end up Married to Hermione!!!!!

My goodness he’s gone! It’s like he’s officially completely dead now! It’s hard to think of Snape as dead, he’s just a continuing force of irritiation … Alan Rickman was AWESOME as him though, no-one could have done better, i can’t wait to see his “extremely good death”

wow.. he’s done a good job on the said character. . .
and at the last movie/book, it turns out that Professor Snape is not the most loyal servant of Voldemort and “he’s the bravest man we’ve ever knew”. .
even if you’re protecting Draco, due to the unbreakable vow, you have also managed to protect Harry Potter as well. . .
Thank you Sir Alan for portraying Snape and for the job well done. . .
We are really proud of you.. :)
