For those of you who know me personally, you cannot be surprised by this post. I’ve loved the Harry Potter books and movies since I was little. I wanted to write brief note about this after hearing about Alan Rickman’s passing. One Halloween, in elementary school, I went as Hermione. Dressing up as her was easy because Hermione also had curly, bushy hair. One year, my mom even entered me in a Hermione lookalike contest at our local bookstore.

Anytime I’m sick or bored or, really anything, Harry Potter is my go-to. As I’ve grown older, I can relate more and more to the characters in the series. One character that I have a connection with is Alan Rickman’s character, Severus Snape. Alan Rickman’s portrayal of Snape has been in the back of my mind during certain situations in my life. He helped me understand the humanity that Snape had. 

I’m glad I have all these characters close to my heart. I can visit Luna, Hermione, and Snape for being a little like me.

Thank you, Alan Rickman.

  1. Nice article with interesting observations and personal reflections.

    As you said, it’s interesting how both real and fictional people can impact our lives, whether we identify common interests and characteristics, or simply contemplate our own lives–personal interests to pursue or personal traits to emulate or modify.
