He was one of both film and theatre’s most admired actors, known for his range and his signature nasal baritone, which could one moment be warm and soothing, and the next convey villainous menace.

It is with no doubt that Alan gained a legion of fans with his role as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films. In fact, it was through that magical character that he became one of Britain’s best-loved acting stars. Alan himself have said many times that it was a role that he cherished as one of his favourites.

Fun fact: He was J.K. Rowling’s personal pick for the role and he was one of the select few who she talked to about the direction the books would go in. Before the fans got to read about it, Alan Rickman was already playing Snape’s motivation.

News of his death spurred an outpouring of grief from the people who admired him and his work, as well as messages from his Harry Potter co-stars.
