Hello everyone. 😦
I’m sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but it turns out that Alan Rickman has sadly passed away today at the age of 69. This is such a shock and my prayers and thoughts are with his family who were with him when he died. Alan passed away after a long battle with cancer and he will be sorely missed.
I first saw Alan in the BBC drama series called ‘The Barchester Chronicles’ made in 1982 where he plays Mr Slope. He would go on to appear in many films including ‘Sense and Sensibility’; ‘Galaxy Quest’ and also in the ‘Harry Potter’ film series where he played the mysterious Professor Snape.
I will always have fond memories of Alan Rickman as an actor, and it’s such a shame he passed away so suddenly and tragically. I’ve read some of the tributes made by actors like Stephen Fry and Eddie Izzard who have fond memories of him. Here’s to one of the finest British actors ever in the world!
