A post shared by Matthew Lewis (@mattdavelewis) on Alan was my friend and so this is hard to write because I have just kissed him goodbye.
What I remember most in this moment of painful leave-taking is his humor, intelligence, wisdom and kindness. He was, above all things, a rare and unique human being and we shall not see his like again.
But some fans are taking issue with Emma's choice of tribute, and the reason will make you really angry.
Regardless, Alan was clearly a supporter of feminism, which is probably one of the many reasons Emma looked up to him, and judging by his quote, he would be proud to be remembered as one.
co-stars, who worked with Alan for over a decade and witnessed him create one of his most iconic roles, Severus Snape.
Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson all released moving statements in tribute to their friend and mentor.
First in franchise, the subject matter of Watson and Thewlis' new film is a whole lot darker.
