Alan Rickman himself said about Severus Snape: “That people in general adore Snape. He is sarcastic, stubborn, etc, etc.
But he is also fascinating. I have a lot of fun impersonating him.“
In fact, Snape has many layers.
He’s sarcastic and scathing and yet has a heart.
He’s strong and yet he’s vulnerable. Snape’s sarcasm and Alan Rickman’s way of playing make him well to a large extent of his fascination.
Scenes from: “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”, “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets“,
“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”, “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Critics, fans and Rowling was widely acclaimed from Alan Rickman’s performance as Snape.
Entertainment Weekly listed Rickman as one of the most popular movie stars in 2007 for his performance as Snape, saying:
“As the icy, humourless magic instructor Severus Snape, Rickman may not be on screen long—but he owns every minute.”
talking about Snape:
“Snape isn’t one who enjoys jokes and I strongly fear that his sense of
humour is extremely limited… But in his defence, I will add that he
didn’t have an easy adolescence, particularly during his studies at
Rickman also noted fans’ reactions; in an interview, he said he found

I knew I had to join tumblr sometime, but I didn’t think it would be to make an oc for a comic I sold my soul to. I wish I colored it better ggggh
This is my oc Basil, and she’s a forest demon! She’s a sheep herder of sorts, and her only weapon is her staff and her… pets.
1. She thinks her pets are the cutest things in the world, and she adores them. She likes cute things and people in general, and is prolly an avid Saffron/Ren fan.
2. She’s very tall and can be very intimidating, when she feels like it. But her bark is worse than her bite and usually she doesn’t kill, rather letting others off with a “you’re not worth the effort anyway.” (and a condescending glare)
3. She’s loud and can be rude af, unless the person in question is a cinnamon roll, and she becomes mama bear. Because of her general personality, she cannot get along with the hot-headed fire demons and prefers the company of her fellow forest demons.
4. She will speak her mind, often without thinking. She’s not trying to be insensitive (most times) but she’s just not very good at social norms (does Hell have these things) as she just recently moved closer to the city to sell guard sheep(?)
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert - Aaron Tveit 10th June 2016
“Oh, no, [aliens are] scary! I made the mistake of watching Fire in the Sky when I was a kid…so basically for the three or four years after I saw this movie I thought I was gonna get abducted by aliens every night when I went to bed. And I used to actually sleep with my baseball bat right next to my bed, just in case. ‘Cause some part of me thought: an alien species that has technology to come to Earth was gonna be deterred by my baseball bat - which, you know, probably wasn’t the best line of thinking.”
Lots of interesting stuff in his late-night talk-show debut…! In addition to his fear of aliens, Aaron discusses being at the Tonys, BrainDead, and how he “might have” broken the law bartending alongside waiting tables at “20, 21.”
