Interview with Alec Hopkins_Young Snape
A recent interview was conducted with Alec Hopkins, the actor portraying young Severus Snape in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. He discusses filming, talking with Alan Rickman, and how he ended up with the role.
“Alan Rickman spent a couple of hours having a chat with me about the part and obviously that was nerve wracking ; there was me as a nobody and then this famous actor. He’s very serious about acting but he likes to joke around. It was really nice and it surprised me – I thought a big star would be different but he was so nice. Everyone is really nice but it’s very daunting. You don’t realise how many people there are and if you messed up you’d be so embarrassed. It’s been a great privilege just to be part of it. It’s not just a film, but it’s a Harry Potter film.”
