He Was More Than a Storybook Character…

…he was our nemesis, the man we loved-to-hate, the man we wished ill upon, and the man we eventually grew to love for the sacrifices he made.

Sacrifices that took us 7 books and many years to fully comprehend.

But beyond that, he was a great actor. Someone who truly took pride in the work he did, and the character’s he portrayed.

Yes, he did other work before, and after, Harry Potter. Besides his debut acting role in the first Die Hard movie, I think I enjoyed him as the Blue Caterpillar in “Alice in Wonderland” (2010), and he is reprising the voice in the upcoming “Alice Through the Looking Glass” (2016).

Do you have a favorite Snape moment? I would love to hear what it is!
