If they’d been able to cast Alan Rickman when he was Snape’s age… He would have looked more like this.
Yeah well he wasn’t … and he was still sexy as hell when he played Snape (and still is). I’m glad he was older because it kind of eliminates the young, stupid girls that would only like him for his looks and not for Snape’s story, Alan’s great acting, or Alan’s true character (who Alan is in real life). You feel me?
Why would a girl be stupid for liking someone for their looks, tho?
Reblogging this because while I love Alan Rickman as Snape as he is, I’m just looking at this going hooooooooly fuck fuck fuck I never realized Alan was SUCH a fox when he was younger. Hello, sir!
Whoa, there! I would like to respond to fuckyeahrickman and any others that wonder about an OP’s intentions.
I love Alan Rickman’s portrayal of Snape. I think Severus Snape’s youth is a strong aspect of his story, and an older Snape in his 60s creates a different spin on the character. Not a bad one, just a different one. I am happy that the role was cast based on talent, and I love how this gif of Rickman’s expression—in a role that he had when he was closer to the age of a character whom he would one day play—still manages to transmit the Snape attitude. This post is not about sexiness, or Alan Rickman as a person.
I felt the need to clear this up, as fuckyeahrickman read negative, superficial qualities into my post, decided the actor himself was under attack, felt indignant about an imagined slur against his sexiness, and reacted with not only name calling, but a declaration on who does or does not have the right to be a fan.
If users want to reblog this, cheering Rickman for being sexy, that’s absolutely cool, because it’s being positive. It might not be what I meant, but it’s adding good feeling onto the post, and I’m all for that. We are all fans here, and there’s no purpose served in attacking each other.
Wow what is all this? I took no offense to the 1st comment in any way. You’re making this into something it’s not and putting words in my mouth. You stated that Snape would look like that if Alan were younger when he filmed the HP series. I said that I’m glad he wasn’t. I said nothing offensive. My reference to stupid girls were the Justin Bieber type who like him only for his looks and don’t look at who he is as a person. Maybe you weren’t talking about Alan. Okay, but I was. I think this whole thing is blown out of proportion and it’s a bit ridiculous. I didn’t mean to offend anyone and I’m sorry if I did.
