Dear Alan Rickman…

The news spread quickly. And it was the first thing that people saw when they signed in.

It was devastating. At first, we did not want to believe that it was true. And we prayed to the gods that it was not. But it was.

Feelings rushed into every fiber of our beings. Chills went up our spines. It was like reading that specific scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. All of it was coming back. But this time, there’s no coming back.

I remember back when I was a kid, I loathed you as Professor Snape. You were Professor Snape. I grew up knowing you on that screen, loving Lily Potter after all those years. And behind that man who delivered those heartbreaking scenes was you.

You were Hans Gruber in Die Hard, and your wisdom was imparted on a certain caterpillar.You were the star of every historical movie that one is fascinated to watch because you. Everything you were in was marvelous. Yet, your ultimate portrayal was of a man who proved that not everyone in Slytherin did not know how to love. It was the most genuine part of the movie, and you brought it to life with your great talent.

It is like losing a family member. As a Potterhead, it is much more harder. But we strive to live. And know that you will always be remembered.




Rest in Peace, Sir.

Love always,
