DANIEL Radcliffe has hailed Alan Rickman’s performance as Professor Severus Snape in final Harry Potter movie The Deathly Hallows Part 2 as “the film performance of his career”.

Speaking ahead of the film’s world premiere in London, Radcliffe said he found Rickman’s portrayal of Snape to be the most moving aspect of the final film and has called for it to be recognised with awards nominations at the very least.

“I’ve said this in interviews a lot and I’ll keep saying it but I do think it’s the film performance of his career,” he told Alex Zane in a pre-recorded interview beamed to the London press conference for the final film from New York.

“I think he should get nominations for best supporting actor because it’s so touching and heart-wrenching and beautiful what he does. I’m really thrilled to have shared the screen with him.”

Radcliffe went on to pay tribute to the efforts of his fellow cast and crew in making his time on the Harry Potter films so memorable and felt sure that the bond between himself and co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as “pretty unbreakable”.

“I don’t think anyone knows what it’s like to go through this craziness… [And] I’ll miss them very, very much but hopefully we’ll find other projects to work together on.”
