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’m speechless! Cannot believe this!! #RIPAlanRickman

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.

    When I heard the news, I couldn’t believe it. I watched the video going round that someone made of all Snape’s most vital scenes in chronological order and shed a little tear this morning. Still can’t quite believe it 🙁

      I saw that video as well. He was just so great as Snape. I still think JK Rowling wrote that character just so he could play him! x

      I don’t think anyone knew. Apparently only family and close friends knew. I just cannot believe it!! x

    Dogma is my favourite film of his. He was so talented. A huge loss to the acting world!
