Hvorfor så seriøst?

Is 'serious' used as in 'important, not to be taken lightly', or as in 'not funny', or both.

As with English, it can be used for both.

I thought the same thing.

I'm pretty sure it's none of them - that would be alvorlig - and seriøs is more along the lines of "trustworthy, reputable"

No, it was Snape.

A Seriøst Sort of a fellow

I think it is mostly used in the meaning of "trustworthy, honourable"
