This past week, the world mourned the loss of one of its finest British actors, Alan Rickman. Best known for his work as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series and Hans Gruber in Die Hard, Rickman loved to play practical jokes on his fellow actors.
The joke Rickman played on his fellow cast members in this behind-the-scenes footage from the third Harry Potter film will surely make you smile.
Before filming a particularly quiet and tense scene, Alan Rickman planted a fart machine near Daniel Radcliffe. What follows sets the entire cast and crew ablaze with laughter and smiles. Alan Rickman’s rich characters and loveable personality will be missed. Or, as Radcliffe says it, “Film sets and theatre stages are all far poorer for the loss of this great actor and man.”
