Alan Rickman (1946-2016), Famed English Actor and Director with a Thirty-Year Career in Film, Theatre, and Television


Recommended Posts

I know Alan Rickman best from the Sweeney Todd movie, and although I have to agree with deangold that all the stars in that movie have "pop voices," they're fine actors, and the expense involved in lighting, makeup, special effects, etc. must have been enormous. Alan Rickman played a superb Judge Turpin in this film.

For those of you who haven't seen the movie: SPOILER ALERT, POTENTIALLY GRAPHIC VIOLENCE:

And I didn't realize until I'd finished writing this that he had passed - peace to you, sir.

Mr. Rickman met his lifetime mate, Rima Horton, when he was 19, and they've been together since 1977 - fully 38 years. (In my eyes, there is no greater achievement than this.)
