Alan Rickman, who played Snape in the Harry Potter series, just spilled some big news — he secretly got married! The actor recently wed Rima Horton in New York, after dating for over 50 years.

“We are married. Just recently. It was great, because no one was there. After the wedding in New York we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and ate lunch,” he told the German newspaper, Bild.

He says that he bought her a $200 ring for the occasion, but “she never wears it,” which is probably why no one figured it out right away.


But still, that’s so cute that he got married to his high school sweetheart. We’re just kind of shocked that they decided to get hitched after dating for such a long time!

Are you surprised he finally got married after 50 years of dating Rima? Send your congratulations to the newlyweds in the comments!
