After all this time? Always.

For many of us, Alan Rickman's performance as the slimy, sallow skinned Potions Teacher at Hogwarts defined our Potter-obsessed childhoods. Whether he was your biggest nightmare, or made your little Slytherin heart cheer with joy, Rickman's masterful skill at bringing Severus Snape to life on screen was a thrill we'll NEVER forget. 

One year on from his passing, let's all throw it back to Rickman's most unforgettable moments as Severus.

Remember first time you were properly introduced to Severus Snape the Potions teacher? You were probably more scared than the fictional students in that class.

That time he muttered the immortal line you spent the next 3 years quoting at all your friends when they did something suspicious.

"UP... to something..."

When you thought he was trying to kill Potter, so you hated him. But it turned out he was saving Potter, so you loved him.

"You were seen... by no less than SEVVVEEENNNN Muggles!"

Then there was that time you discovered he was a duelling expert and you cheered when he sent Lockhart flying.

And you spent the next week laughing because you thought he said 'Asparagus'.
