Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Rickman played nemeses on the silver screen as Harry Potter and Severus Snape for nearly a decade, but according to a post on social media, Radcliffe found a mentor and friend in the veteran actor when the cameras weren’t rolling.

After Rickman passed away on Thursday, Radcliffe took to Google Plus to share his feelings about his “Harry Potter” cast mate. He called Rickman "undoubtedly one of the greatest actors I will ever work with" and said Rickman "he was one of the first of the adults on Potter to treat me like a peer rather than a child."



Radcliffe wasn’t the only former "Potter" star to take to social media following Rickman’s death.









Rickman died on Thursday at the age of 69 after a battle with cancer.
