J.K. Rowling Fought For McGonagall’s Fight

“I don’t like the marginalization of women when the fighting breaks out. We get to fight too. I really wanted that. In the book, Minerva McGonagall is the one who does it and for me it was very important that she did that.”J.K. Rowling, on fighting the decision to pit Harry Potter against Severus Snape in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 instead of McGonagall, who fought Snape in the book.

Alan Rickman’s Goodbye Letter to the Harry Potter Franchise

I have just returned from the dubbing studio where I spoke into a microphone as Severus Snape for absolutely the last time. On the screen were some flashback shots of Daniel, Emma and Rupert from ten years ago. They were 12. I have also recently returned from New York, and while I was there, I saw Daniel singing and dancing (brilliantly) on Broadway. A lifetime seems to have passed in minutes.

Three children have become adults since a phone call with Jo Rowling, containing one small clue, persuaded me that there was more to Snape than an unchanging costume, and that even though only three of the books were out at that time, she held the entire massive but delicate narrative in the surest of hands.

It is an ancient need to be told stories. But the story needs a great storyteller. Thanks for all of it, Jo.

Some of them were better than others, but it’s still something of the end of an era, as commemorated by a guy that we’ve loved since Galaxy Quest. (Empire Magazine via MTV Movies Blog.)
