Epic tea time with Alan Rickman

When it’s tea time for Alan Rickman, clearly he means business. Watch him make a cuppa in super slo-mo and then watch the drama that ensues. It is a “Portrait in Dramatic Time” by David Michalek.

I’m still not sure what it’s all about, Alfie, but Alan Rickman can make walking down the street into an art form. I should know. While working in London’s Notting Hill in 2000, there was a period of time where I would frequently see Professor Snape himself in the morning on my way to work. I would walk on one side of the street (Westbourne Grove), he would walk on the other, always looking down, serious, purposeful on his way to get a cup of coffee.

I never stopped him. I would never dare interrupt his morning routine. One morning, I spotted him inside a Caffe Nero, having a cuppa with Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (AKA Maid Marian from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) and the scene was near perfection.
