We are going to talk about our favourite performances through the franchise.
Next Round Worst Animated Sequel – Closing Date Friday 30th November 2018
I have only seen the Harry Potter films once, I did marathon them which did increase the enjoyment, but when it came to the Order of the Phoenix, they had become the generic concept I was starting to get bored of, the main child stars were comfortable in their roles, the adults were too, Evanna bought us a new colourful character, that never seemed to fit in like the rest, she grabbed the attention with her mysterious character which I only want to know more about.
Milo – Stuff and That
Alan Rickman – Severus Snape
In all honesty, I’m no Harry Potter head. However, I’m on board with whatever the late, great Rickman graces with his presence so sure, Snape it is. What? You gonna argue with Alan Rickman?

To be honest, I had no idea. Despite loving the books – and going to Harry Potter world in LA earlier this year (just casually dropping that one in), I never really loved the movies that much. Not in a snobbish way – I did think they were pretty fitting adaptations, with a good British cast – but for me the magic (no pun intended, who am I kidding, ALL puns intended) was really in the books, not the movies. So I haven’t even seen them all. Nor do I really care to.
Based on that, I’m choosing Daniel Radcliffe because I genuinely think he’s a really good actor (a lovely person too) AND I think he’s the cutest little thing ever in the first two movies. And it makes me smile seeing him. Little cutie pie.
I’m actually not big on the Harry Potter films, although I loved the books. I’ll have to go with Gary Oldman as Sirius Black for my answer. Great character as well as great actor.

Given my love for Harry Potter LOL. (sarcasm). I have seen the movies though and I have to say “Deathly Hallows Part II” Alan Rickman, RIP, as Severus Snape. His character is different because he looks mean and sardonic when he is actually harboring all sorts of emotions, some protective and some good. I was impressed when he walked in the room.

Alan Rickman – Severus Snape
The best performance in the Harry Potter franchise is Alan Rickman and I dont think it is close. He is deliciously evil while having an arc that makes you care for or at least understand his choices. Rickman nails the voice, mannerisms and everything else that makes Snape work in the books. By the end he has arguably the most emotional moment of the whole series when he says goodbye to Harry. It’s why they could never film Cursed Child because he is irreplaceable.
Rob – Movie Rob
alan rickman as Snape because his character is evolved so well over the course of the books (films) that we can only fully understand his actions at the end and that changes everything when looking back

Yeah, it has to be. With that unmistakable voice, commanding screen presence, the depth that he brings to the character, and the occasional droll one-liners, he’s the most memorable actor in the franchise and he’s the one we all remember and miss. For very good reason.
