Much-loved British performer Alan Rickman is confirmed to have died today, aged 69.
He was very much adoredfor his roles in Die Hard, Galaxy Quest, and Robin hood- but most notably for his portrayal of Snape in Harry Potter.
Snape is perhaps one of the most misunderstood of J K Rowlings characters, and was played excellently by Rickman- who was able to keep Snape’s story arc a secret from everyone- including the director.
The potions professor’s backstory was teasingly indicates that there is flashbacks, but enterprising YouTube user kcawesome1 3 devoted the project some time and rearranged them in chronological- creating a fascinating insight into the character.
A character that fans will appreciate today more than ever. RIP Alan Rickman, a truly amazing actor.
