Rickman, known for his iconic portrayal of Severus Snape in the 'Harry Potter' film series, spoke about the child actors' dedication and the challenges they faced.

"As much as I was doing it for seven weeks, they were doing it for 52 weeks," Rickman remarked before adding, "this was their life from 12 to 22. And you would watch it from the sidelines at times and throw the odd lifeline in because there was so little time for that."

Radcliffe, who played the titular character of Harry Potter, revealed his initial intimidation by Rickman's strong presence.

"I was so intimidated by Alan Rickman. How can you not be by that voice?" he admitted. However, as time passed, Rickman recognized Radcliffe's determination and became one of his greatest supporters.
