Alan Rickman’s Diaries Will Be Published as a Book

Many fans may know him as Professor Severus Snape in Harry Potter, Alan Rickman was an acting legend and left extensive diaries about his career. The diaries go from 1992 to his untimely death in 2016. They will now be published into a book by the same publishing company that published Barack Obama’s memoir, “Dreams From My Father”.

According to The Daily Mail, the diaries entries  include worries about his role as Severus Snape in Harry Potter, particularly thoughts that his screen character was not as well fleshed out as in J.K. Rowling’s books. There are also comments about conversations of encouragement with Daniel Radcliffe.

‘They are a detailed record of his career and remarkable life,’ says actor Neil Pearson, who these days owns a rare books company.

He acquired Rickman’s archive, which includes diaries, letters and annotated scripts, from Rickman’s widow Rima. The diaries will include commentary on plays he saw, stage rehearsals, meal he had, and actors he worked with. It will be an interesting read and a look into his life for longtime fans of the late actor. There’s no word yet when the books will be released.
