Yes, Alan Rickman is dead…the second time around. His first death as Professor Severus Snape brought a lot of tears to Harry Potter fans. Now, his passing brings tears not only to HP fans but to the world as well.
Let us all dwell in the melancholy of losing a great actor and wizard. Here are the top three things which prove that Alan Rickman is the true personification of Professor Snape.
He attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. It is the same drama school which honed the skills of great actors such as Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Sean Bean, and Oona Chaplin.
In Harry Potter, he attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where famous and powerful wizards like Tom Riddle, and Albus Dumbledore studied.
He played the role of Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series where he, during the first movies, made Harry’s life in Hogwarts difficult.
In his movie Love Actually, he played the role of foolish Harry whose married life also experienced difficulty.
In Harry Potter, Professor Snape loved his childhood sweetheart, Lily Evans (later on became Lily Potter).
In real life, Alan Rickman married his teenage sweetheart, Rima Horton.
Rest now, Professor Snape. Know that you will ALWAYS be in our hearts.
