The end is nigh
I haven’t posted anything Harry Potter related in a long time. With the last film’s release date approaching at lightening speed, I think its time I did. So if you will forgive me (and you know who you are) here is a picture of Mr. Rickman in Snape attire from the Empire Magazine special issue. This was apparently only available in the British Isles and I have lifted it from one of various posting in the many fan sites (which is a nice way of saying I don’t remember where I got this). What strikes me in this photo, is that even tho’ the costume and hair and wand and all are there – it is not Snape. What I see is a picture of Alan Rickman smiling – the personality coming through from the image appears gentler and kinder than Snape could ever be.
