Alan Rickman: By Grabthar’s Hammer, You Shall Be Remembered!

Well, this is a crappy week. First David Bowie, now this:

Alan Rickman has passed away yesterday, at the age of 69.

My favorite movie memories of Rickman:

Alexander Dane, Galaxy Quest

Metatron, Dogma

Professor Severus Snape, “Harry Potter”

The man was a genius. He pulled off all his roles with exacting performances. Some actors play themselves, others always play the same part, Alan Rickman acted the role.

He was one of the chief reasons Die Hard was such a phenomenon. He was amazing, and he shall be missed.

  1. Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves – bad movie, but he was certainly the highlight in it for me.
