Rickman, Thompson Reunite for Post-Potter Project

By Hanako M. Ricks

HollywoodNews.com: Harry Potter alums Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) and Emma Thompson (Sybill Trelawney) will reunite once again in a new one-off drama to air on BBC2.

The drama will be based on the 2009 poem “The Song of Lunch”, written by Christopher Reid and will air on October 7 in honor of National Poetry Day.

The drama tells the story of ex-lovers who reunite for lunch some 15 years after the end of their relationship. Thompson’s character is married to a famous writer and living a glamorous life in Paris, while Rickman’s character has not been as successful, and also regrets the end of their relationship.

This is not the first time the two actors have worked together; prior to starring together in the Harry Potter films, they appeared in the films Sense and Sensibility (1995), Judas Kiss (1998), and Love Actually (2003). Rickman also directed Thompson in 1997’s The Winter Guest.
