Alan Rickman was one of the most enigmatic actors and directors of British Cinema. His death has deeply touched many worldwide especially those who came to associate him with Professor Snape in J.K. Rowling's cinematic world of Harry Potter.
Alan's character was one of the most important to the Harry Potter Series. The words: "After all this time?", "Always" have become an internet sensation since his death.
We knew that in the early days of Harry Potter on screen, J K Rowling shared with Alan secrets of what was to come in the unpublished books. Since the loss of this sensational actor, the world has been crying out to J K to reveal the insight she gave to Alan.
I told Alan what lies behind the word 'always'. https://t.co/NHTJ5J6kxb— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 18, 2016
Although at first Snape's character appeared evil and villainous but we come to learn that everything he did was out of love of Harry's mother - Lily. What a testimony to human life - or should I say wizard or muggle life!
On and off screen Alan inspired many and his loss has a large sadness in British Cinema that has not been felt for a long time.
