Funny / Alan Rickman

  • The prank he and Michael Gambon played on Daniel Radcliffe during the filming of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. While doing the scene of the students sleeping in the Great Hall, they placed a fart machine in Daniel's sleeping bag (which was right next to an extra he had a crush on) and kept pressing the remote during the take.
  • In the commentary for Love Actually, Richard Curtis reveals that he told Rickman he read the Harry Potter books to his kids and tried to duplicate the voices of all the actors in the films, but couldn't get Snape right because he couldn't "throw my back into it" enough. Rickman replied, "Don't worry. I don't either."
