Alan Rickman’s sudden demise is a loss of great talent which we shall not see again. As soon as this news was declared, social media went viral on internet talking about his achievements, tributes and his characters from being a villain to a real life hero.
But, this one letter has made the whole world get emotional which his fans have been sharing repeatedly.
The letter was written by our own Professor Snape in 2011 & published in Empire Magazine. It was a farewell letter to Harry Potter & it’s soul stirring. It says,
“I have just returned from the dubbing studio where I spoke into a microphone as Severus Snape for absolutely the last time. On the screen were some flashback shots of Daniel, Emma and Rupert from ten years ago. They were 12. I have also recently returned from New York, and while I was there, I saw Daniel singing and dancing (brilliantly) on Broadway. A lifetime seems to have passed in minutes.
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 delicate narrative in the surest of hands.
It is an ancient need to be told stories. But the story needs a great storyteller. Thanks for all of it, Jo.”

Alan won’t be snapping anymore but will always be remembered & sorely missed. R.I.P.
