My tribute to the incomparable Alan Rickman and the first role I ever had the pleasure of seeing him in.
He was one of my very favorite actors. When it was announced that they were going to film Harry Potter I remember hanging out on a forum, fantasy casting our picks with the group. I immediately jumped at Alan Rickman as the *perfect* Snape, reminding everyone how brilliant he’d been in Prince of Thieves. Soon we were all in agreement that it could be no one else…and obviously we were far from alone in that belief!
He is immortal in the works he gave us, and the much talked about kindness and guidance he gave new generations of actors. Even so, I will miss him and I know you all will too.

Since Harry & Co. can't be trusted in an objective view of Snape, but the story repeats and reaffirms Dumbledore as a trusted source of info, it is safe to say (IMO!) that Snape actually being a stronger, ballsy character is likely...especially as a double agent. Being spineless isn't something JK wrote for Snape when in his dealings with Voldemort for example, though she plainly did for Peter Pettigrew and Lucious Malfoy.
...Not that there's any good amount, but you know what I mean.
