   Rickman discusses directing movies0 Comments

In a new interview with Oregon Live Alan Rickman discusses filming movies.

On Harry Potter:

Accio Quote:
I did do lots of different things the whole time. For example, while I was shooting Harry Potter I was also appearing in “Private Lives” in London on the West End and on Broadway, and I was making things like ‘Sweeney Todd’ and ‘Love Actually’ and ‘Snow Cake’ and other movies. I was directing in the theater as well [-> Strindberg and a modern play about Israel and Palestine.

In a way, they choose you, projects. I don’t know that I was looking to do something set in the French 17th century, but it happened.

On being recognised as Professor Snape:

Accio Quote:
It depends where you are. Certainly not much in England because everybody walks down the street staring at the pavement. That’s a relief (laughs). Honestly, I never expect it because that long black wig is a huge disguise. It doesn’t happen as often as you might think it would. It’s such a kind of strong outline — black wig, black eyes, white face — that seeing me running for a cab or something is not the image that people associate with the character (laughs).

   Pottermore Dursley update & new Deathly Hallows material0 Comments

J.K. Rowling has updated Pottermore with new content related to Dudley’s 35th birthday. From The Guardian:

Accio Quote:
In her new piece for Pottermore, Rowling describes the Dursleys as “reactionary, prejudiced, narrow-minded, ignorant and bigoted; most of my least favourite things”, and says that she wanted to suggest that “something decent (a long-forgotten but dimly burning love of her sister; the realisation that she might never see Lily’s eyes again) almost struggled out of Aunt Petunia” during the final farewell, “but that she is not able to admit it, or show those long buried feelings”

There is also new Deathly Hallows materials that you can access by going to the Cupboard Under the Stairs and then check out the side table outside the cupboard to unlock the new content.
