Possibly the best character in the whole Harry Potter series. As we do not know whether he is good or bad, throughout the entire series. When we think he is good he seems to do something to make us think he is bad. Then when he seems bad and evil something else happens to change our minds again. Severus Snape is the most complex character and the mystery of it all really does keep us hanging on right until the very end. We do not find out the truth until we get to the Prince’s tale.
No-one could have taken the role on the way Alan Rickman did. He really became Snape bringing him to life and the delivery of the lines are just so perfect. I just love the way he speaks and sounds so awkward at times.
The 6th year at Hogwarts and everything is becoming darker as we begin to find out about Lord Voldemort’s past. Harry finds a potions book with ‘the half-blood prince’ written in. A favorite character is killed . . .
After the return of Lord Voldemort at the end of the Goblet of Fire. We are wondering how the wizarding world are going to react to it all. Well the answer to that is badly, as the minister of magic tries to claim that Dumbledore and Harry are making it all up. But we all know that is not the case . . .

A look back at the posters from the second Potter film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)!
A look back at all the posters for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001).
The fourth year at Hogwarts see’s the tri-wizard tournament take place, meaning two other wizarding schools come for a year. Some twists and turns see the usual tri-tournament having a fourth competitor in an underaged wizard taking part and yes you guessed it, Harry Potter is that wizard.
I think I started the 30 day Harry Potter challenge at just the right time, to have it finishing days before the final film is released in theatres. I found it very good going through each day and deciding my favorite or least favorite characters and things about the franchise. A very good challenge for any Potter fan to have a look back at everything about the series.
I also feel a certain sense of achievement by finishing the 30 day challenge. I tried a normal film one a couple of months back and it totally failed at about 14 days. So a good achievement right in time for the final film coming out in two days . . . or three days.
Severus Snape has always been the character who you do not know if he is good or bad. Dumbledore was always in Snape’s corner when Harry used to blame him for everything. However, after Snape kills Dumbledore, Harry takes it all even harder when Dumbledore always used to trust him.
Snape’s story is possibly the best in the entire series and we are going to be seeing this on the big screen in a couple of days. I cried during that whole part of the book, so not holding much hope for holding it together for the film. Not long now!!!
Harry Potter Challenge – Day 30: What affect has Harry Potter made on your life and how much does it mean to you
I think it made me realise how incredible books can be if they are written in such a fantastic way and how much you can fall in love with a different world. You are taken on an amazing journey and can relate to everything the three main characters go through and how difficult it really is growing up. The things you are put through at school and what everything means to you as you do grow.
We love Hogwart and wish we could have gone to school there and that magic and wizards are actually real. It is incredible how J.K. Rowling managed to create all of this in such incredible depth.
Harry Potter mania headed stateside last night for the NYC premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
Third year brings yet another defence against the dark arts teacher and Sirius Black has escaped from Azkaban . . .
I have not seen any of ‘A Very Potter Musical’
I have never listened to Wizard Wrock . . .
Harry Potter Challenge – Day 27: Would you rather own The Invisibility Cloak, The Resurrection Stone or The Elder Wand
Without a doubt the invisibility cloak . . . the things you could find out and do without anyone having any idea of what you are up to. I think that would just be the best thing!
Yesterday evening saw the final Harry Potter premiere take place in Trafalgar Square, with what was possibly the biggest red carpet ever linking to Leicester Square. The premiere was broadcast live around the world, and yes I did find myself watching for a few hours. It was a very emotional experience for everyone involved, even watching it all unfold. The cast members were clearly overwhelmed by the amount of fans who were stretched around the stages and red carpet. Such unbelievable scenes in London. All of the cast members spent plenty of time signing autographs and posing for photographs.
Watching live we had interviews and words from all of the different cast members. To finish with we had the three biggest stars of the films, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. Joined by J.K. Rowling herself and the films producers. This lead to emotional speeches taking place and causing each other to get emotional and the tears began to flow. The realisation that this was the last time they would ever have a world premiere for a Potter film and they would never experience anything like that ever again.
This time next week I would have seen the film already for myself as attending a 00:05 showing on Friday 15th July. What I am seeing as a brilliant start to my birthday weekend. Although if my worst crying moment in the books is put into the film in more of a visual way I may indeed leave the cinema in pieces. I am looking forward to the film, but at the same time I really do not want it to be over at all.
When myself and my friend went to the cinema on Sunday to see Bridesmaids, we were very excited to see the Harry Potter style 3D glasses on sale. I had heard rumours that they were going to be available due to the final film being in 3D form. But that was the first I had actually seen them. So we decided to buy them despite the fact that we don’t really want to see the film in 3D or actually big fans of the 3D film! But we could not resist getting them! We then sat before the film started and took pictures in them, convinced that the other people in the cinema must have thought we were sat in the wrong screen with Bridesmaids not being in 3D . . . You even get a little bag to keep them in
