Video: Harry Potter As Told From Severus Snape's Point Of View

Severus Snape is one of the most fascinating characters in the world of Harry Potter. From book to book, more than any other character, you love him, you hate him, you fear him, you're confused by him, and author J.K. Rowling waits until the last half of the final book to finally reveal what was actually happening the whole time.

The movies mimic this structure, too, albeit with fewer details. Thankfully, the nuanced performance of Alan Rickman over the course of eight movies adds so many layers, it's just as rewarding in its own way as the character in the novel.

For proof of that, a YouTube user has re-edited Rickman's performance to tell Snape's story in chronological order. Check out the Severus Snape story below.

Thanks to kcawesome13 via Cinemablend for the video. It's been out there for over a year (and has over 5 million views so many you've seen it already) but is new to us. Check it out.
