RIP Alan Rickman <3

I don’t even know where to start with this post expect that I have been felt very sad since hearing the news of the great Alan Rickman’s passing just after lunch time today. I mean I could not quite believe it twice in the space of a few days a truly legendary figure leaving us and finding out via Twitter. It really is such awful news, the very well-respected and loved actor of not just film but stage as well. An actor I have loved from a young age as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and then coming across him in so many more wonderful roles. Must mention his turn as Snape in the Harry Potter series as come on he is one of the best characters, as well as Love Actually a different type of role again and Die Hard. Those are the films I immediately think of when the name Alan Rickman is mentioned but I know he had so many more great roles as well, the voice!

Top 10 – Harry Potter – Snape Quotes

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.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II (2011) The Final Build Up!

The beginning of the end for me is at 12:05am Friday 15th July . . . that’s right I am heading to a midnight screening of the final Potter film when it all ends! Let’s take a small look at some of the scenes that have been talked about by the cast and we have had small clips of in the trailers. I have left out a couple as the spoilers in them would be too much!

The Kiss

One of the biggest talking points has been the long-awaited kiss between Hermione and Ron. Something which the actors who see each other more like brother and sister were totally dreading.

Snape’s Story

For once and for all we will find out what Severus Snape’s story is and which side he is really on. This is something that has kept everyone guessing throughout the entire series. If we start thinking he’s good something happens and we think he’s bad again and vice versa. This has to be the part I am most looking forward to in it’s adaptation from the books, as it actually made me sob!

Neville’s Finest Moment

We have all watched Neville struggle over the years, as everything always seemed to go wrong for him with a wand in his hand. In each class if something happened it always seemed to be to him. But in the final stand and the battle of Hogwarts this is Neville’s finest moment when he proves that he is indeed a brilliant wizard doing his mother and father proud.

Harry and Tom

It all started with the curse going wrong on one year old Harry Potter and now Tom Riddle . . . Lord Voldemort face off. We all know that only one of them can survive but which one will it be? We have seen small clips from this part in the trailers and the anticipation growing towards it is massive.
