10 Things You Didn't Know About Alan Rickman

10. He Helped Play An Amazing Prank On Daniel Radcliffe

Despite commonly portraying characters of a more serious demeanour, Rickman had an incredibly fun sense of humour. One specific example saw him and Michael Gambon play a prank on Daniel Radcliffe during the filming of Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban.

The scene sees Radcliffe and many fellow students lying on the floor in sleeping bags due to a threat at large in Hogwarts. Radcliffe had requested his sleeping bad be placed next a young extra who he had a crush on. What Radcliffe didn't know, however, is that Gambon and Rickman had planted a farting machine in his sleeping bag, which they began activating while Gambon's Dumbledore was delivering his lines. The result? Well, take a look for yourself. It's absolutely hilarious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dU5ejL8KWo0
