Speaking of Tom Felton recalling his incident with Alan Rickman, as per Huffpost, the actor earlier shared that the incident took place at night when they were filming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In the scene, a group of Death Eaters were following Snape who was wearing a cloak. Now, Felton was given a warning before the take as he in an Instagram video earlier revealed, “Eventually I was told in no uncertain terms by Alan Rickman, ‘Don’t step on my f**king cloak.’” He continued, “I sort of giggled. The Death Eaters and I looked at each other and thought, ‘Is he joking?’ It quickly became apparent: He’s definitely not joking.”

Tom Felton in the video further revealed the situation got tensed when the director David Yates asked him to “walk as close as [he] can to Alan” in the scene. Felton recalled the take went smoothly until they “got about halfway through the Great Hall”. Felton accidentally stepped on Alan’s robe revealing that Rickman then “turned around and gave me a look you never, ever want to see.”

The actor in the video said that he understood why Alan Rickman would be upset. “You have to bear in mind his cloak’s attached around his neck- I nearly killed the poor man!”

In the next take, Felton recalled, someone else accidentally stepped on Snape’s cape saying, “That kind of took the heat away from me but I’ll never forget those words: ‘Don’t step on my f**king cloak.’”

On a different occasion, Felton admitted that he was most scared of Alan Rickman as he stayed in his character the whole time.
