A Brit a Day [#501]
At the New York opening of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,' Alan Rickman was awarded the MTV Harry Potter World Cup, signifying Professor Snape's victory as the most loved of all the HP characters. I've made no secret of the fact that I have been a loyal Snape supporter since the first time Alan Rickman burst through the potions class door in HP1. I'll never forgive Chris Columbus for cutting that scene short and then Warner Brothers' hiding that deleted scene in an impossibly labyrinthine game on the DVD.
Anyway, there isn't much I can say about the Snape/Rickman chemistry [pun acknowledged but not really intended] that hasn't been said already. So I'll just be quiet and let the loveliness do the talking.
