J.K. Rowling Reveals the Secret She Told Alan Rickman About Snape

J.K. Rowling has revealed the secret piece of information she gave Alan Rickman during the filming of Harry Potter about his famous character Severus Snape.

Alan confided that J.K. had given him special insight about the character in a 2010 interview with RTE.

“She gave me one little piece of information, which I always said I would never share with anybody and never have, and never will,” Alan said. “It wasn’t a plot point, or crucial in any tangible way, but it was crucial to me as a piece of information that made me travel down that road rather than that one or that one or that one.”

When a fan asked J.K. about it on Twitter following Alan’s death, she finally shared the famous secret, writing, “I told Alan what lies behind the word ‘always.’”

Harry Potter's Sean Biggerstaff Pens Touching Tribute To Alan Rickman

Harry Potter actor Sean Biggerstaff wrote Alan Rickman a tribute letter that will have you in tears.

The 32-year-old actor, who played Oliver Wood in the Harry Potter movies, penned a very touching tribute to Alan, who passed away on Thursday (January 14).

“I don’t know what I did to deserve a friend like Alan. He looked out for me for twenty years and I loved him. I don’t know what to do now,” he shared on Twitter, before posting a longer tribute.

“In 1994 I, an 11-year-old idiot, walked into a rehearsal room in the Old Athenaeum in Glasgow and was welcomed by the fucking Sheriff of Nottingham in a voice which made the room tremble. We sat down and my audition started, reading straight off the page dialogue so unavoidably brilliant that all you needed to do was read it straight off the page.

I did not get the part.

I was too young.

I did, however, receive a long, hand-written letter from Joyce Nettles, the casting director, thanking me for auditioning and expressing regret that it hadn’t worked out. The only time this has ever happened. I think Alan may have had something to do with that.”
