Alan Rickman, the English actor, well known for playing Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movie series, passed away at the age of 69 today. They say he had cancer. (
No I don’t know which cancer it was,nor have I got any idea about how long he had had it and how much people knew about it. )
Being one of those that hate Snape during the first 6.7 books, and at the end can’t help but forgive him, and also one of those who have seen Rickman as Snape for so long that they can’t see him as anyone else, (he did, after all, make a great Snape,) I feel strangely sad about the news. Still, I don’t plan to write an essay. I’ve said what I had to say.
When I’m 80 years old and sitting in my rocking chair, I’ll be reading Harry Potter. And my family will say to me, “After all this time?” And I will say, “Always.” – Rickman.
