Adios, Professor Snape!

Never had I cringed and loathed every time a character made his entry in a movie scene so much, only to shed copious tears of pain when he died……until this man immortalized Severus Snape for me and a whole generation of Potterheads.

The world will remember him for his contributions to cinema and theatre, but he will forever remain Snape for a magic-struck kid whose journey started with the words “Professor Quirrell, in his absurd turban, was talking to a teacher with greasy black hair, a hooked nose, and sallow skin.” and ended with ““Albus Severus,” Harry said quietly, so that nobody but Ginny could hear, and she was tactful enough to pretend to be waving to Rose, who was now on the train, “you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew.””

Alan, always!

  1. You know I’m currently reading Harry Potter novels (my childhood longing) – its amazing! I’ve read the first introductory line about Prof. Snape but I’m yet to read the concluding sentence. Your mention here gave a reason to look forward to a spectacular end 🙂 Alan will always be alive in our hearts for his eternal character he portrayed.
