As fans continue to mourn Alan Rickman, J.K. Rowling has given us new insight into what helped him understand Professor Snape better than anyone else at the time.



"She gave me one tiny, little, left-of-field piece of information that helped me think that he was more complicated and that the story was not going to be as straight down the line as everybody thought," Rickman told HitFix in 2011.



"If you remember when I did the first film she'd only written three or four books, so nobody knew where it was really going except her. And it was important for her that I know something, but she only gave me a tiny piece of information which helped me think it was a more ambiguous route," Rickman said about the author's revelation.
