'Rickman was terrifying but kind'. Tom Felton recalls working with the ''Harry Potter'' co-star.

Tom Felton or the Draco Malfoy of the renowned Harry Potter franchise recently remembered his late co-star and onscreen lecturer Alan Rickman, alias Professor Severus Snape.

The actor, 33, hosted a special watch party on Peacock's TikTok account where he re-watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone with his fans across the  United States on Tuesday night, reported People.

Felton also interacted with his fans, answering their questions. And in the process, a viewer asked him, ''What was it like to work Alan Rickman?''

He confessed, ''Scary. He was the only actor I knew and he was terrifying in the most pleasant way,'' adding, ''But he was very very, very kind, with a wicked sense of humour.''

Felton continued, ''I met him when I was 12, so it took me a few years to have enough courage to say more than 'Hi'. But it was a privilege to work with Rickman, a real privilege.''

Rickman died in 2016 from cancer at the age of 69. The actor was known for wide variety of roles in numerous films including Die Hard, Sense & Sensibility and Love, Actually, which also starred Emma Thompson, who played Professor Sybill Trelawney in the Harry Potter series.

In 2007, when the cast off the famous romantic film reunited for a mini-sequel benefiting the comedy fundraiser Red Nose Day, Thompson did not.

She told reporters at the time that it was ''too sad'' to return without Rickman, who played her husband in the film.

''Richard [Curtis, screenwriter] wrote to me and said, 'Darling I can't write anything for you' 'cause of Alan' and I said, 'No, of course, of course you can't,' '' she told Reuters at the time. ''It would be said, too sad. It's too soon. You know, it's absolutely right.''
