16 Severus Snape Moments Every PotterHead Needs On Alan Rickman's Unfortunate Demise
SPONSORED

We lost a hero, a gem, the person who slayed a million hearts. 
Alan Rickman was a pot of gold. He played legendary characters, but one of his most remarkable work was bringing Severus Snape to life. 
We lost him to Cancer on January 14, 2016. 

Severus Snape seemed to be a very cold character in the Harry Potter books. Until the end, when tables turn, and it turns out if there was anyone who saved the day- it wasn't Harry Potter alone. It was Severus Snape. One of the finest written characters in the history and one of the most exceptional portrayal ever. 
There is no Severus Snape without Alan Rickman. 

We bid our last good-bye to the man himself by reliving the most cherished moments of Severus Snape from Harry Potter.
