Professor Snape almost slipped out of the Harry Potter movies.
The late star Alan Rickman, who played Professor Snape in all eight Harry Potter films from 2001 to 2011, mentioned that he was considering a role in 2004’s Alfonso Cuaron-directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban moved to Interlace.
In an excerpt from the journal published more than six years after Rickman’s death from prostate cancer in 2016, Rickman reportedly wrote that while working on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and the tech sequel, he had a strong interest in the franchise. rights are considered. Rickman’s 27 diaries will likely be printed in a book called The Diaries of Alan Rickman, due out this fall.
Rickman wrote in January 2002 that it was “nice to meet his friends,” but the film feels limitless: “It’s a dream factor that never stops. And in a way it doesn’t – and not received,” read an excerpt printed by the Guardian. By December 2002, Rickman had been in conversations with his agent Paul Lyon-Maris about leaving Harry Potter, with Rickman writing “what he thought would happen. However, , here we are again in mission collision space. No extra HP to repeat. They don’t need to hear.”
After agreeing to star in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Rickman wrote that director Cuaron “quietly” attacked him after an accident on set.
“The start of the day was incredible, the monitor fell on my head, and the power went out suddenly and quickly on a gloomy day,” Rickman wrote. “Alfonso [Cuarón, director] Very calm to me. I liked him so much that it took too long to end, so I stumbled and whined and we worked it out. He was under the same pressure as Hewlett Packard used to, even he started rehearsing the camera in front of actors who wanted to direct.You don’t know what her text says and Emma [Watson]The expression is usually this aspect of Albania. Also, my so-called rehearsal was with a Frenchman. “
When the film was released in May 2004, Rickman gushed that “Alfonso did a great job” and that the film was “a very mature film full of boldness that made me laugh. .”
Rickman was later treated for prostate cancer before filming “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” and mentioned, “It must have been HP 5 in the end. It felt neither high nor low. The winning argument was to claim “accept it” . This is your story. ‘”
JK Rowling’s ending for Professor Snape also proved to be an inspiration for Rickman’s level of persistence and completion of the character. “I finished my study of the final ‘Harry Potter’ e-book,” he wrote. “Snape died heroically, and Potter described him to his children as one of many bravest men he had ever known, and named his son Albus Severus. It was a real The Passing Ritual. Some Stats from Joe Rowling Seven Years Ago – Snape’s Beloved Lily [Potter] —gives me a cliff to keep going. “
