Alan Rickman Finishes "Deathly Hallows" Filming
April 09, 2010, 07:02 PM
Thanks to Snitch Seeker we can tell you about a recent interview with Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) in which it is confirmed that Rickman has completed filming for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." The International Herald Tribune interviewed actor and director Alan Rickman about bringing Creditors to New York City's Brooklyn Academy of Music after a two year break since the play's original London run. Rickman's role in the Harry Potter films is mentioned briefly:
Mr. Rickman, who is known mostly as an actor despite several acclaimed turns as a film and theatre director, was less eager to discuss his own career. Not that it is bereft of interesting developments. The day before, for example, Mr. Rickman, 64, had just finished filming the final "Harry Potter" movie. His portrayal of the slithery and surprising Severus Snape has brought him fame as never before, making him into one of the world's most celebrated movie villains, a thrilling antihero to the Potter-mad masses. But in his own mind Mr. Rickman had merely jumped form one intense experience to another, and he was thoroughly focused on "Creditors."
Snitch Seeker has scans of the full interview in their galleries
, including a new photo of Rickman directing Creditors
. The play opens on the 16th of April at the Brooklyn Academy of Music
; as we previously told you
, Rickman will take part in a pre-performance Artist Talk at BAM'
s Harvey Theatre on the 27th of April at 6pm. Tickets to the 45 minute Artist Talk cost $10 and can be purchased at this link
Many thanks again to Snitch Seeker
for the heads up!
I think Alan Rickman is great as Snape, but i thought Snape’s storyline in the last book was silly. I hope they cut most of the prince’s tale and only leave in enough to make the film make sense. Snape may have been a hero because he ended up on the right side of the war, but he was not the bravest man. He treated Harry like crap and didn’t want anyone to know that he had changed. He was not a complex character. He was obsessed with Lilly and she got killed because he wanted her and thought that Voldemort would actually just kill James and Harry. He trusted the woman he ‘loved’ to a man that he knew could not be trusted and she died for it. If he really loved her he never would have taken that chance and would have thought about her and not himself. Snape was not a good man.
God, I’m crying, I’m really crying, I can’t believe it. Thank you for everything, Alan Rickman!
It’s sort of sad, that some of the important actors are finishing filming… but I suppose it’s also a sing, that the release of the final movies is drawing nearer…
I can’t believe he finished filming…This means the whole film may be ending very soon… I think I might start to cry… :’(
Thank Alan, for perfoming (so faithfully) and bringing to life one of the most amazing characters ever!!!
I actually pouted when I saw this…it feels so real now that these movies are coming to an end when you hear of a major character like Snape being done filming…it makes me so sad!
This is actually a shock that he is done, it came from nowhere too but wow Alan is amazing! He will always be Snape to me :D Brilliant actor!
