Alan Rickman plays Professor Severus Snape.

The British actor will be the subject of the latest "A Life in Pictures" event.

His celebrated sneers and snarls have helped make Hans Gruber, Severus Snape and Sheriff George of Nottingham iconic cinema baddies.

But next month, Alan Rickman is expected to turn on the charm in front of an audience at BAFTA’s London headquarters.

The actor — who recently stepped behind the camera for a second time with period drama A Little Chaos — will take to the stage on April 15 for the latest of BAFTA’s "A Life in Pictures" events.

Previous Q&A subjects in the series have included Emma Thompson, Ray Winstone, Kenneth Branagh, Ethan Hawke and David Fincher. At Michael Palin's "A Life in Television" BAFTA event earlier this month, the Monty Python man revealed that John Cleese had been "difficult" to work with. Fans will have to wait to see if Rickman says the same about Hedwig the owl.
