I think this tweet says it all:
Sorry about the language. It just seems like this year won’t stop.
Alan Rickman, David Bowie, Prince, Gordie Howe, Muhammad Ali, Arnold Palmer, and John Glenn just to name a few. And now Carrie Fisher.
And that’s not all. The refugee crisis, Brexit, Trump add on to the things that have so many people upset.
But really, Carrie Fisher?
Can we just have 2017 already?
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?
