I’m in shock. Another ageless 69 year old gone, and this time it’s the brilliant man who played the Sheriff of Notingham in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves:
Too young to have seen Prince of Thieves? Then how about Alan Rickman as the baddie in Die Hard?
I could go on, including clips from Love Actually and the Harry Potter movies but it should already be obvious why Alan Rickman was such an extraordinary actor. He pretty much stole the show in almost every movie in which he appeared. Now there won’t be any more movies.
Thank you for the legacy of your work, Alan Rickman. You will be missed.
