If you’ve always wanted to hear Professor Snape with a high pitched voice, this video is for you.

Actor Alan Rickman appeared on The Tonight Show on Tuesday to talk about his new movie ‘A Little Chaos’, but not before he took Jimmy Fallon to task for his infamous “Alan Rickman-off” with Benedict Cumberbatch in 2013.

In order to get the host to confess, the 69-year-old ‘Harry Potter’ star brought out some helium-filled balloons, which he called “Jimmy Fallon truth-telling machines”.

Naturally, this led to Fallon trying to make Rickman also inhale the helium and then say “Harry Potter” in a higher register.

It’s probably a good job Professor Snape didn’t always talk like this in the movies – it would have been much harder for him to maintain his cold demeanour and hold such authority over the Hogwarts’ students…
