The Important Life Lessons We Learnt From Severus Snape

6 Important Life Lessons We Learnt From Severus Snape

The Debrief: Alan Rickman may have passed away, but his legacy still stands strong in the world of memes

Today is a sad, sad day. We shed many a tear when we lost Severus Snape in Harry Potter, and it turns out that saying goodbye is even harder in real life. Alan Rickman has passed away at the age of 69 after a battle with cancer, and social media is full of tributes to one of the bravest men we knew (HP reference there, guys).

JK Rowling has paid tribute, calling him ‘a magnificent actor and a wonderful man.’ Daniel Radcliffe has deemed him ‘one of the loyalist and most supportive people’ he’s ever met in the film industry.

So let’s all raise our wands to Alan Rickman, and reminisce with the a selection of the internet’s best memes that sum up all things we’ve learnt from our favourite brooding anti-hero.

1. He showed us that haters are gonna hate

2. He wore vintage before it was cool

3. There’s always time for a compliment

4. Of course, this great life lesson
