He dies today at 70 years old.
I believe he was 69, in fact. Whereas seemingly everyone is instantly jumping and discussing his role as Severus Snape in Harry Potter, I personally remember him more fondly from Kevin Smith’s Dogma, Die Hard, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and Galaxy Quest. Even his portrayal of Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street was fantastic. An absolute legend and master of his profession.
I can’t believe it’s not even been a month and we’ve lost two of outstanding British artists. Utterly sad Tragic. Rest in peace.
RIP. Alan Rickman.
RIP good actor he was!
