Harry Potter is one of the most celebrated and successful franchises of all time. Both the books and the movies have captured the hearts of children and adults worldwide. In honor of this series, we’ll be looking back at some Harry Potter facts that you might not have known about.
The Truth Behind Snape
Alan Rickman, the actor playing Professor Snape, learned of the truth behind Snape’s intentions prior to the release of the seventh and final book. Rickman was the only person that J.K. Rowling told, and did so in order to help Rickman properly acquaint himself with his character so he would be able to get into the right mindset before getting the script. It’s a good thing that Rickman was able to keep a secret; Snape was definitely one of the biggest plot twists in the entire Harry Potter series. For those of you who haven’t read the books or watched the movies, keep an eye out for Professor Snape. He’ll always keep you questioning his motives.
