Anybody else notice this Rickman quirk? I’ve been seeing it mostly recently in the Harry Potter movies, but I’m sure I’ve seen him do it elsewhere too. Example from HP4:
“The use of veritaserum on a student is, regrettably, forbidden.However, <pause> blahblahblah.”
I don’t recall the exact dialogue, but he did it in HP1 in his first classroom scene and again in HP4 in Dumbledore’s office right after Harry’s name came out of the Goblet of Fire. I haven’t had time to watch the other HP movies specifically for examples to give here, but I’m pretty sure they’re there. As well in other movies (Die Hard, Galaxy Quest).
Does he have this written into his contract? He does it so deliciously well. I loves me some eeeevil Rickman.
