The world lost a phenomenal actor in Alan Rickman today. The man who played the iconic villain/hero Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies lost his battle with cancer Thursday morning surrounded by family and friends in London.

As fans, we feel a unique sadness at losing someone we don’t even know, but Rickman’s HP castmates are mourning the loss of a friend. Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, JK Rowling, and more have taken to social media to give tribute to their coworker, pal, and inspiration.

We raise our wands to you, Mr. Rickman.

Caption reads, “I was at Leavesden Studios today when I heard the news. As I walked through the canteen I thought of Alan queuing up for his lunch with us mere mortals. I recalled the trailer in which he offered me some of the greatest advice I ever received about this mad profession we shared. Being back in those corridors made me remember a lot of things and I will treasure those memories all my life. He inspired my career more than he ever knew and I’ll miss him.”
