Rickman to Rowling: “Thanks for all of it, Jo”

In anticipation of its 36-page feature on Harry Potter, Empire Magazine continues to release written and video interviews online.

Tonight, they have released a letter from Alan Rickman, the actor plays Professor Severus Snape, to author J.K. Rowling. In it, he discusses how he has just returned from speaking into a microphone as Snape for the final time. He cannot believe how fast time has passed.

“Three children have become adults since a phone call with Jo Rowling, containing one small clue, persuaded me that there was more to Snape than an unchanging costume, and that even though only three of the books were out at that time, she held the entire massive but dedicate narrative in the surest of hands.”
