Alan Rickman slammed Harry Potter creators over 'teen audience appeal' in unearthed letter
Harry Potter creators over "teen audience appeal" in unearthed letters that came to light after his death.The award-winning actor played the role of Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films, but in unearthed letters expressed his frustrations with how the seventh film had been directed.The legendary actor's true feelings were exposed in 2018 when a collection of letters were released after his death.It came as David Heyman, the director of the second Harry Potter film, told Rickman he understood his “frustrations” in a letter.The director told Rickman: “Thank you for making HP2 a success."I know, at times, you are frustrated but please know that you are an integral part of the films."And you are brilliant," he added.Another letter from 2009, written by Rickman himself, was titled: “Inside Snape’s Head.”In the letter, he once again spoke up about what irritated him about his character’s inner-workings during the filming of the seventh Harry Potter film which was directed by David Yates.Rickman wrote: “It’s as if David Yates has decided that this is not important in the scheme of things i.e. teen audience appeal.”The star also received a letter from Harry Potter author JK Rowling.Rowling thanked Rickman for "doing justice to my most complex character"."Rickman starred in all eight films and heartbreakingly died  of pancreatic cancer not long after the final film aired.However, it was revealed that the award-winning actor nearly left the franchise after a couple of movies.His decision, however, was overturned after a couple of choice words from author J.K.

Emma Watson's 'savage dig' at JK Rowling during BAFTAs over transgender row unveiled
Harry Potter film series which is based on JK Rowling's best-selling novels.The actress has previously made no secret in the past that she disagrees with the billionaire author's views on transgender rights.It comes after the 56-year-old came under fire in early June 2020 for controversial tweets she posted about the transgender community.Rowling retweeted an op-ed piece that discussed “people who menstruate,” apparently taking issue with the fact that the story did not use the word women.The initial tweet garnered a lot of backlash, but Rowling did not relent and stood by her views saying she "loves and respects every trans person" but added that at the same time "my life has been shaped by being female".The author added: "I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.”Her stance has caused fans and stars like Emma, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Eddie Redmayne to speak out against her opinions.Emma took to the stage to present the award of Best Outstanding British Film at the Royal Albert Hall back in March.After she was introduced by host Rebel Wilson, she appeared to make a savage dig at the best-selling author following her controversial comments on transgender women.As Rebel, 42, welcomed Emma to the stage, the Australian actress quipped: "Here to present the next award is Emma Watson.She calls herself a feminist, but we all know she’s a witch."To which Emma replied: "I’m here for ALL the witches."Following her statement, eagle-eyed viewers took to social media at the time to discuss whether or not the actress' comments were aimed at Rowling."Ooooooh Emma Watson throwing so much shade at JK Rowling! This is the drama I needed tonight," quipped on BAFTA viewer."Loving Emma Watson's vibe tonight.

J.K. Rowling pranked by Russians impersonating Zelensky on Zoom
The Rowling Library, the “Harry Potter” author was fooled by Russian comedy duo Vovan and Lexus, who are known for prank-calling high-profile celebrities.The duo’s past prank victims include Elton John, Boris Johnson, Kamala Harris, Prince Harry, Billie Eilish, Bernie Sanders, and George W. Bush — and it seems as though they can now add Rowling to their star-studded list.The multi-millionaire author — who seemingly didn’t know she was being recorded — was under the impression that Zelensky called to thank her for her charity work in the country.Earlier this year, Rowling announced she would match donations up to $1.2 million after her Lumos Foundation launched an emergency appeal to help vulnerable children and families in Ukraine.Fully thinking she was speaking to the president of the war-torn country, Rowling appeared invested in the conversation as the pranksters asked increasingly bizarre questions throughout the interview. During the increasingly-awkward 12-minute call, the impersonators asked Rowling about her thoughts on imposing sanctions on Russian actor Aleksandr Kuznetsov, who starred in the most recent “Fantastic Beasts” film.“Fantastic Beasts has been a very interesting experience.
