Severus Snape has been named as the best loved 'Harry Potter' character in a new poll by Empire magazine.
Severus Snape has topped a poll to find the best loved 'Harry Potter' character.
The wizard - played by Alan Rickman - received over 500 more votes than Harry's best pal Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) who finished in second place and the titular character who placed third in the poll on Empire magazine's website.
Empire's Deputy Online Editor, Helen O'Hara, commented, "Snape is a truly great character, multi-layered and surprisingly complicated under that straggly black haircut. He's especially good in the film because of the way that Alan Rickman infuses him with malice and menace. He seems capable of anything - and indeed he is, in the end, but in a way you never expected. While Harry, Ron and Hermione may seem more heroic, Snape is definitely Jk Rowling's most important and complex character."

Rupert Grint says kissing his 'Harry Potter' co-star Emma Watson was ''unnatural'' because she's like a sister to him.
The actor has to lock lips with his stunning co-star in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' but says it wasn't enjoyable as it seemed because they know each other so well having worked together for over 10 years on the franchise.
He said: "It seemed like the most unnatural thing to do, to kiss this person I'd known since she was nine. It took a while to get into it and put our Friendship aside. It's quite full-on, a proper snog. We're soaking wet as well - they dumped gallons of water on us and then we just went for it. We laughed a lot and it took us a while to concentrate. We did it about four times."
