And Now Alan Rickman

Everyone’s favourite bad guy actor, Alan Rickman, has passed away. Yet another famous male British celebrity has died of cancer at the age of 69. I hope this doesn’t keep happening.

This was also totally unexpected. I had no idea he was sick. And he’s been active with movie roles up to recently. He has a movie coming out this year, too. I loved him in Harry Potter as Severus Snape, and he’s been in several well-known movies, such as Die Hard, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Love Actually, and Galaxy Quest.

Here’s the announcement by BBC.

What do you think is his most memorable role?

  1. I really enjoyed him in love actually.
    I know it gets a bit strange. If the next famous person who dies is 69 too then something strange is going on.

      1. Yeah, me either! Usually that kind of stuff is plastered all over the magazines and stuff, but he must have kept it pretty close to the cuff. I would rather it that way, because it’s nobody’s damn business if he was sick, but it also makes it a shock when the worst happens. ._.

    1. Yeah, I think I first saw him as the Sheriff of Nottingham. I kept getting his role confused with The Sheriff of Rottingham from Robin Hood: Men in Tights. That was Roger Rees, who just died last year.

  2. So sad to hear this… Loved him most in TRULY MADLY DEEPLY. When you go back and watch his performance knowing what his true agenda is, it’s just heartbreaking. How much he will be missed…
