A look inside the late actor’s ten-year journey through the “Harry Potter” series is provided by the recently released snippets from his diaries.

Additionally, they shed light on his decision to keep playing Severus Snape in all eight of the films, according to Variety.

Rickman had to deal with health concerns before ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,’ the fifth installment in the series could start filming. The actor was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer in 2005, and treatment for it started soon after, according to excerpts from the documents published by The Guardian.

He underwent surgery in Nashville, Tennessee’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center in January of the following year after physicians ultimately chose to remove his entire prostate, according to Variety.

Rickman made the decision to continue serving as the infamously depressing Potions professor in a journal piece he wrote some weeks after being discharged from the hospital.

Alan Rickman’s Journals Why He Continued Playing Severus Snape

“And lastly, YES to HP 5. The feeling is neutral—neither up nor down. The argument urges people to “see it through” triumphs. It is your narrative, “He wrote.

Variety adds that the actor had always been aware of the tragic love story between his character and Harry Potter’s mother, Lily and that in 2007 he had penned his reflections on his character’s death in J.K. Rowling’s final book in the series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”

The final “Harry Potter” book has been read, he noted in a previous post. “Snape passes away bravely, and Potter calls his son Albus Severus after him and praises him to his children as one of the bravest people he has ever known. This truly was a rite of passage. I had a cliff edge to hold onto seven years ago because of one tiny bit of knowledge from Jo Rowling: Snape adored Lily.”

Rickman also shared his thoughts after leaving the world premiere of the first installment of the trilogy, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.” According to Rickman, “the movie should only be seen on a big screen.” “It develops scope and depth that are comparable to John Williams’ repulsive score. It’s far more enjoyable to party afterward at the Savoy.”
