Book Snape vs Movie Snape[edit]

I think that people often think of Snape as "evil" because he is represented from a child's point of view in the books, but the movies offer you a chance to view him from your own unique point of view... InlovebyASPR (talk) 02:13, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

American Airlines[edit]

I can't tell if this article is humor or not, but Fox News claims the actor who played Snape is working as a ticket agent for American Airlines:

That is not what the article claims. Have you read it? Elizium23 (talk) 04:32, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Addition to Reception Section[edit]

I noticed that under the 'Reception' section that there is mention of Severus Snape voted as the #1 favourite character by MTV and Empire Magazine, However it does not make mention of Severus Snape voted the #1 favourite character in a poll by Bloomsbury the publisher of the Harry Potter series (i know i don't need to mention this, you would all clearly know!). The poll was launched in May 2011 by Bloomsbury with a total of 70,000 votes casted, with Severus Snape receiving 20% of the votes to come in at #1.

I have a number of verifiable sources that confirm this, and you can read them at The Guardian and The Telegraph, respectively.

I feel this is somewhat important to make mention of, as it was launched by Bloomsbury. Let me know your thoughts on this. OphiraGrey (talk) 01:27, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child[edit]

Someone with more skill than I should update the Appearances section to include Snape's appearance in Act 3 of the play during the alternate timeline in which Voldemort won the Battle of Hogwarts because Cedrik Diggory killed Nevil Longbottom. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thornbrier (talkcontribs) 00:47, 27 August 2016 (UTC) Thornbrier (talk) 00:49, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Readers Said Snape is not Dead


Logics as per the Readers


• 1: Snape doesn't appear when Harry uses the resurrection stone: You'd think Snape was very important to Harry, he loved his mother, gave his life to save him, and shielded him all his life. Harry just found out how Snape had been protecting him the whole time and died to save him, so when he used the magic ring that brings the spirits of dead people, you'd think Snape would be there. He certainly knew Snape longer than Lupin, and you'd think Snape was far more important to him than Lupin, but Snape wasn't around. Perhaps he was not dead. • • 2: Snape's corpse isn't found or mentioned: After the big battle, they lay out all the bodies, all the people who died, even the death eaters and Voldemorts. Harry sees Lupin's and Fred's body, but Snape's body isn't there. You'd think Harry would have told everyone about Snape's sacrifice so they can find his body too. But nope, Snape's corpse isn't found.

My theory, based on these two points, is that the snake venom didn't actually kill Snape, probably just paralysed him or put him in a comatose state. Just think about it, do you really think a POTIONS MASTER wouldn't have access to anti-venom? You think he wouldn't have prepared for the possibility that Voldemort's snake might turn on him? He was playing a dangerous role as a spy, Voldemort could turn on him at any moment, I think Snape would have obviously taken some kind of prophylactic antidote beforehand. So Voldemort's snake didn't actually kill Snape, it just temporarily paralysed him and made him look like he was dead. That's why the elder wand didn't belong to Voldemort, cause he hadn't really killed Snape. Snape's body is not mentioned at all, and his ghost doesn't appear with Lupin's and Harry's parents, even though it should have, so Snape obviously survived. He probably feels he fulfilled his promise to Dumbledore and Lilly and is out travelling the world and living his own adventures. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Devil Incorrect (talkcontribs) 13:13, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Talk pages are not a forum for discussion of the subject of the article; they are for discussion of improvements to the article. What you have here is "original research", unsubstantiated by notable sources, and no specific improvement to the page. This is not the place for that. What you want is a fan forum, not Wikipedia.

Quick Editing Fix[edit]

In the first paragraph/section of the article skillful is spelled incorrectly. "An exceptionally skilful wizard, his coldly sarcastic and controlled exterior conceals deep emotions and anguish." I didn't know how to contact you until I created an account to edit, and realized that I could not edit either way. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Artemis796 (talkcontribs) 05:57, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

"Skilful" is correct British spelling, and this article follows British spelling throughout. There is no misspellling there. Magidin (talk) 07:07, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

"Louis Potter and the Philosopher's Scone" in Alistair McGowan's Big Impression show.[edit]

I have modified this section, as Alan Rickman did NOT appear as himself as Snape in a Harry Potter parody named "Louis Potter and the Philosopher's Scone" in Alistair McGowan's Big Impression show. It was Alistair McGowan playing the character named "Professor Alan Rickman".

Link of the episode is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEq3csv-sE8Viper (talk) 03:34, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
