It’s been more than four years since the death of Alan Rickman but he will always be remembered for his roles, especially in the Harry Potter.

JK Rowling, the writer of the Harry Potter books, took to Twitter to write a heartfelt tribute for the late actor.

JK Rowling replied to a fan’s tweet, which read, “Tonight in Italy they air Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow Part 2. As always, I’m NOT ready to say goodbye to Severus Snape. Thank you @jk_rowling for this unique character and for convincing Alan Rickman to portray himwe had the perfect Severus Snape (sic).”

To which the 54-year-old author replied, “In Harry Potter & the Cursed Child, Snape makes his first appearance with his back to the audience. At the dress rehearsal I saw him in his long black wig & my eyes filled with tears because, for a split second, my irrational heart believed when Snape turned around, I’d see Alan (sic).”
