Most significantly, for over seven years, Rickman was one of the very few people other than Rowling to know that Snape had been in love with Lily Evans (later Potter) when they were students at Hogwarts, and both Snape's protection of and antagonism toward Harry came from that. Rowling said that she shared this information with Rickman because "he needed to understand, I think, and does completely understand and did completely understand where this bitterness towards this boy, who's living proof of [Lily's] preference for another man, came from." When the directors of the films would ask him why he was playing a scene a certain way, or delivering a line in a particular manner, Rickman would simply reply that he knew something they didn't.

Quotes

#Quote
1(On his role in Die Hard (1988)) "As far as I'm concerned, I'm not playing 'the villain.' I'm just playing somebody who wants certain things in life, has made certain choices, and goes after them."
2I don't play villains, I play very interesting people.
3The job of directing it is absolutely terrifying. But you realise you've learned so much down the line ... like Anthony [director Anthony Minghella]'s vulnerability on the set of Truly Madly Deeply (1990). He gathered all the actors together on day one and said: 'I have one word: help.' ... Ralph [actor and director Ralph Fiennes] gave me another piece of advice, which was, 'The danger of directing yourself is that you are embarrassed about going for another take.' [2015]
4I've learned a lot working with Bruce [Bruce Willis] and Kevin [Kevin Costner]. I mean, I'm the one that's there to learn, actually, in that situation.
5It's a great pleasure to me to work on film now as well as on the stage. But it is no soft option. It isn't easier. It's in many ways more difficult, and it's a different kind of a challenge. You have to think a lot quicker and be a lot more immediate. And watching Bruce [Bruce Willis] and Kevin [Kevin Costner] and Tom Selleck deal with that has been an education.
6I approach every part I'm asked to do and decide to do from exactly the same angle: who is this person, what does he want, how does he attempt to get it, and what happens to him when he doesn't get it, or if he does?
7I love America because whenever I go home -- there's something about England and coming from England -- but as soon as you walk down the steps of the plane you shrink. And you have to start saying "sorry" and being polite and curtsying and things like that... America just lets me be the klutz I really am.
8Los Angeles is not a town full of airheads. There's a great deal of wonderful energy there.
9If you spend any time in Los Angeles, there's only one topic of conversation.
10On not being a father: I love to travel and I don't have children, so there is a certain freedom.
11I do feel more myself in America. I can regress there, and they have roller-coaster parks.
12I have a love-hate relationship with white silk.
13On longtime partner Rima Horton: I think every relationship should be allowed to have its own rules. She's tolerant. She's incredibly tolerant. Unbelievably tolerant. Possibly a candidate for sainthood.
14I do take my work seriously and the way to do that is not to take yourself too seriously.
