He was cool before Snape

Another British legend has died this week, also at the age of 69.

Alan Rickman made every film he was in, even the crappy ones, stand out more. A few years after Die Hard, he starred with Juliet Stevenson in Truly, Madly, Deeply, which is a weepfest of a film that is better than Ghost. I'm pretty sure this is how I first remember him, and his remarkable acting talent.

He left us with so many good roles, and we have those to go back to.

Cancer sucks.

Truly, Madly, Deeply was also my first acquaintance with him. Wonderful film, just loved it and loved him.

He was a favourite of mine.
