A few weeks ago, the world lost one of its most beloved actors, Alan Rickman. Although his work on both stage and screen boasts a wide array of projects, to most Rickman will be remembered as his character Severus Snape from the Harry Potter series.
Alan Rickman captured the hearts of even the most casual Harry Potter fans as the cold Potions Professor who demonstrated immense strength and devotion to protect those few people he cared for.
This past weekend, Universal Orlando held 'A Celebration of Harry Potter' at the park where guests were able to enjoy the sights, rides, and even an early behind the scenes look at Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. In a video shot by the blog Inside the Magic, fans of the series gathered together and raised their wands in honor the late Half-Blood Prince.
He was a Slytherin, and he was probably the bravest man we ever knew. Rest in peace, Alan Rickman.
