J.K. Rowling Remembers Alan Rickman in Emotional Tweet (& We're Not Crying, You Are)


J.K. Rowling had an emotional moment while remembering the late Harry Potter actor Alan Rickman in a recent tweet.

A fan tweeted, “Tonight in Italy they air ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow Part 2′. As always, I’m NOT ready to say goodbye to Severus Snape … Thank you @jk_rowling for this unique character and for convincing Alan Rickman to portray him – we had the perfect Severus Snape.”

J.K. replied, “In Harry Potter & the Cursed Child, Snape makes his first appearance with his back to the audience. At the dress rehearsal I saw him in his long black wig & my eyes filled with tears because, for a split second, my irrational heart believed when Snape turned round, I’d see Alan.”

Our hearts.
