I wasn’t planning to post today but I couldn’t let today pass without me saying something…. but in all honesty there are just.no.words.
When the news broke at lunch I was sitting by my computer casually browsing Facebook when it popped up. My mouth dropped wide open and I just sat there going “What?! Wow hang on! What?!!” I think my actual Facebook status was “Sorry but hang on WTF?!!?!?!?!”
I honestly cannot believe we’ve lost the great actor that was Alan Rickman! He was one of my favourite actors. Definitely my fave British actor.
I had a look back through IMDB.com and looked through the films he’s been in. There are a number I’ve not seen. But then I was also reminded of some I hadn’t seen in ages such as Dogma. Oh I loved that film! He was just so deadpan in it! I love this scene (beware there’s some foul language):
Hours later I’m still in disbelief. He was truly a great actor. There’s a generation of fans out there who will remember him as Professor Snape but to me he will always be Hans Gruber.
