All the Magical Memories Shared from the Harry Potter Reunion

The reunion took a moment to remember the Harry Potter cast members who are no longer with us, including Alan Rickman, Helen McCroryRichard Griffiths and more. Here’s what some of the cast had to say about those late icons…

Emma Watson on Richard Harris, who passed away in 2002: “Richard Harris was such a special, warm person. He was so twinkly.”

Daniel Radcliffe on Richard Griffiths, who passed away in 2013: “His passing was the one that affected me most, because he was generous with knowledge. He just wanted to share everything with you.”

Tom Felton on Helen McCrory, who passed away in 2021: “She had taught me a lot. [Fighting back tears] See I can’t even say it, um, she had this ability just to sort of show such empathy in her eyes. It was a real treat to work with her.”

Ralph Fiennes on Alan Rickman, who passed away in 2016: “Alan was a very dear friend. His final scene—I was a little intimidated by him, his precision, his expert delivery of lines. And we sort of went toe-to-toe in a funny way, you know, Snape and Voldemort. Two actors can relish, metaphorically fencing with each other, Alan was a magician in that way as an actor.”
