HBP Filming with Alan Rickman Slated for Early February

There is a new interview with actor Alan Rickman in Entertainment Weekly in which the actor, who plays Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies and is currently attending the 2008 Sundance Film Festival in the U.S., briefly discusses his character:

EW: Okay, I think your wranglers are giving me the signal, but I have to say, even before I got to the end of the Harry Potter books —

AR: Before you go any further, I never, ever talk about that character. Number one, because it's not fair on kids who haven't read to the end. And for me to say anything — there's a bit of it that just should be left innocent. It's real storytelling, what she's done, and I'm part of that. So I just never talk about it.

EW: When do you go back to shoot Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince?

AR: They're shooting six [now], and I start shooting my part of it beginning of February.

EW: It's a bigger part for you this time.

AR: Ahh.... There's important stuff. [Smiles]
